Protea Kilimanjaro Adventures has experienced mountain chefs who prepare delicious and tasty food to fuel your attempt for the summit. It is not uncommon for you to lose your appetite at high altitude and you should eat and drink as much possible. Good food and plenty of drinking water are essential ingredients, both physically and psychologically, to make your climb rewarding. At high altitudes, drinking a lot of water is essential for your health and helps prevent altitude sicknesses. Drink and eat as much as you can – we provide plenty of both.

Please let us know in advance if you have any special dietary request (s) e.g. vegetarian, we are happy to cater for this as well.

Fantastic Tour. Protea Kilimanjaro adventures is the best tour company in Tanzania. They arranged my safari well, and my tour was fantastic and memorable . I did a Tanzania Safari in Serengeti National Park at a reasonable price but with perfect services; everything was super. I would highly recommend Fredrick and his team.
