Tipping is an important part of the culture in Tanzania, and it’s customary to tip your mountain crew after a successful Kilimanjaro climb. While our Kilimanjaro packages do not include tips for the crew, we understand that tipping can be a bit confusing and stressful for some travelers. So, to make things easier for you, we have put together a recommended tipping guideline that you can use to show your appreciation for the hard work and dedication of your mountain crew.
For your guide, we recommend a tip of $15 to $20 per day. Your guide is responsible for leading the climb, ensuring your safety, and providing you with valuable information about the mountain and the surrounding area.
For your assistant guide, we recommend a tip of $10 to $15 per day. Your assistant guide is there to support the main guide and ensure that everything runs smoothly on the climb.
For your cook, we recommend a tip of $10 to $15 per day. Your cook is responsible for preparing your meals and ensuring that you have enough energy to complete the climb.
Finally, for your porters, we recommend a tip of $6 to $10 per day per porter. Your porters are responsible for carrying your gear and equipment up the mountain, and they work extremely hard to make sure that everything is in order.
The guidelines for tipping are as follows:
Guide – $15 to $20 per day
Assistant Guide – $10 to 15 per day
Chef – $10 to $15 per day
Porters – $6 to $10 per day per porter
An example of the Mountain crew size is when 2 people climb together for 7 days Machame climb you will have 14 people has your Mountain Crew which comprise as below.
Therefore, the tip amount will be as below using the above tipping guideline.
Therefore, the total tipping amount for the mountain crew would be $707 – $1120. Each climber would contribute $354 – $560, if the cost is divided equally between them. It’s important to note that this is just an example of the tipping guidelines.
It’s important to note that these are just recommended tipping amounts, and you should feel free to tip more or less based on your personal level of satisfaction with the crew’s performance. Whatever you choose to give, we know that your mountain crew will appreciate your generosity and hard work. We recommend that you budget for tipping in advance and prepare to give a gratuity to your mountain crew at the end of your climb.

On our Kilimanjaro packages, we do not include water purification tablets as part of the package. we treat water by using water guard tablets which are available in Tanzania; from our experience, this water guard may have some effect on some of the people,, but we understand that some climbers may prefer to use their own purification tablets due to personal preferences or allergies. Additionally, we recommend bringing along powdered drink mixes with electrolytes or bouillon cubes to add flavor to the water and encourage staying hydrated. These items can easily be packed in your personal gear and can be purchased prior to your trip or while in Tanzania. We want to ensure that you stay healthy and hydrated throughout your climb, and having your own water purification tablets and flavoring options can help make that possible.
While our Kilimanjaro packages include a team of porters to carry your main gear and equipment, we understand that some of our climbers may want to hire an extra porter to carry their day pack or camera gear. This service is not included in the package, but we do offer it as an optional extra for an additional cost of $30 per day. Hiring an extra porter can help ease the burden of carrying heavy gear during the climb, and allow you to fully enjoy the experience and capture the breathtaking views of Kilimanjaro. Please let us know in advance if you wish to hire an extra porter, and we will arrange it for you.
At our company, we take the safety and well-being of our clients seriously. That’s why we require all climbers to have adequate travel insurance that covers them for trekking up to 6,000 meters. Kilimanjaro is a challenging climb, and due to its remote location and high altitude, there are risks involved.
Your travel insurance should cover medical emergencies, medical evacuation, trip cancellation or interruption, and other unexpected events that may occur during your climb. We recommend that you carefully review the coverage of your insurance policy before embarking on your journey.
If you don’t have travel insurance that meets our requirements, we can provide you with recommendations for reputable travel insurance companies that offer policies tailored to Kilimanjaro climbs. Remember, having appropriate travel insurance is not only mandatory for our Kilimanjaro climbs, but it’s also essential for your peace of mind and protection in case of any unforeseen circumstances.
