The best time to take a Mount Kilimanjaro helicopter tour.

The best time to take a Mount Kilimanjaro helicopter tour depends on your personal preferences and travel plans. The mountain can be visited year-round, but the weather and conditions can vary greatly depending on the time of year.

  • The dry season, which runs from late June to early October, is generally considered the best time to visit Mount Kilimanjaro. During this time, the weather is clear and dry, making for excellent visibility and comfortable hiking conditions. This is the main climbing season and the best chance for a clear view from the summit.
  • The rainy season, which runs from late March to May and from November to mid-December, is generally considered to be less ideal for climbing or visiting the mountain. During this time, the weather can be wet and unpredictable, with heavy rainfall, mist and low visibility that might affect your tour.
  • That being said, depending on your preference, it is still possible to go for the tour, since the weather in mountain regions can be very different from the surrounding area, with the summit having completely different conditions than the base. Also, during the rainy season you might get to see the mountain covered with clouds which might give you a different perspective of the mountain.

It’s also important to consider other factors such as holiday seasons, availability and cost. It’s always good to check and consult with the tour providers regarding the best time to visit based on your preference, budget and schedule.
