The day AFTER your climb


How did you feel the day after you finished? I’m asking because I’m trying to figure out how to plan more time in East Africa. Will I be up for another physically active day? Or will I be sore and need time to rest/recover?

I’ve done longer and more intense hikes in less time and after a few days of 15-30 mile walks, I’m usually ready for a day off my feet. Kilimanjaro is different, so I don’t know what to expect. Can I just jump into action the next morning, or will I need time to recover from the trek?

    How you feel after conquering Kilimanjaro is basically up to you, how much you trained, How your body adapted to the elevation and how long it takes for you to recover. Normally, you won’t get back to your hotel until mid-afternoon at the latest. You will want a hot shower, a good meal and some well-deserved rest. We recommend relaxing on a safari or on the beaches of Zanzibar.
