But what if it rains during my trek?? You can keep your clothes, sleeping bag, socks, and the rest of your gear dry by packing them in garbage/plastic bags inside your duffel. Rain can happen anytime on Kilimanjaro, so with this extra protection is key – and the bags become perfect stuff sacks for dirty clothes. Deal with the laundry when you get home!

Speaking of garbage bags… did you know that Thomson porters have removed over 400 pounds of other companies’ garbage from the mountain in the last year? We abide by Leave No Trace principles and keeping the mountain pristine is one of our top priorities.
