Meals on Mount Kilimanjaro

Our team of experienced chefs take great pride in serving delicious and nutritional meals.  All of our menus have been specifically planned to provide you with necessary energy, nutrients and keep you hydrated.

Clients often comment that the chef’s ability and standard of food is far above what could have possibly been expected given the logistical limitations of the mountain.  We even have a resupply crew mid way through your trek to ensure everything is fresh just for you.

We are happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions or requests .  If your climb is over a special occasion for a birthday, anniversary or romantic marriage proposal we can also arrange cakes, champagne or something extra special, just let us know.

Great food and plenty of fluids are essential ingredients, both physically and psychologically, to make your climb rewarding. At high altitudes, staying properly hydrated is essential for your health and helps prevent altitude sicknesses. Lots of teas and delicious soups will supplement your daily water intake so drink and eat as much as you can – we provide plenty of both.

Upgraded gourmet meal packages are available upon request.

Our typical mountain cuisine includes the following:

Specialty food like dried fruit, chocolates and cheeses. We carry cooler boxes and  have a resupply crew midway through your trek to keep all the food fresh and tasty.
