Enjoy Tanzanian cuisine styled meals during your hiking and climbing escapade. Meals are prepared by our Kilimanjaro chefs and designed to nourish your body, refuel your energy levels, and excite your pallet. Relish in a new dining experience as you journey up Africa’s highest peak.
Wake up to your choice of a steaming cup of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate paired with a selection of fruit that will boost your metabolism for the day’s activities. Delight in a breakfast generally consisting of oats, eggs, toast, sausages, and a bowl of traditional Tanzanian Ulezi cereal that will shift your body into adventure gear.
Shorter hiking days allow for sit down lunches along with incredible vistas, while longer hiking days will be paired with packed lunches to munch on route. Lunches generally consist of an assortment of filling sandwiches that vary each day. These sandwiches consist of either chicken, tuna, beef, or cheese, and come with delightful snacks such as biscuits and chocolates to cleanse that sweet tooth. A special lunch of hot chicken and chips with a traditional Tanzanian onion and tomato kachumbari are often served on one of the last days to warm up the body. Varieties of hot, chunky and delicious soups will also be on the menu. Lunch on summit day calls for a celebration with cakes, traditional sultana, and pancakes.
Dinner is prepared with the intention of healing your muscles and replenishing your body after a long days trek.
