March is considered one of the prime months for tackling the epic Mount Kilimanjaro. March is often quite dry and the temperature is relatively cool – meaning a comparatively uncomplicated trek. However, the further March progresses, the more chance there will be of rain, so an easy ascent is not guaranteed.
The bright side of this is that there may be fewer mountaineers on the slopes of Kili in March to avoid the rain. During the rainy season, the best routes to take up the mountain are Marangu, which has the benefit of huts for sleeping, or Rongai, which historically receives less rainfall.
