  • To prevent the water from freezing on summit day, leave your water and inner tube in your jacket. For camelbacks, blow air back into the bladder after each sip and drink often

Tipping Policy:

The tip depends on the length and complexity of the trip, the number of staff on the trip, and the number of travelers on the trek.

Generally, the group likes to meet before the end of the hike to discuss how much they would like to tip each member based on their individual experience. Tips shouldn't depend on whether you climb the summit or not, but whether your guides and porters were professional and had your best interest in mind.

If your guides and porters didn't meet your expectations, please contact us and don't feel obligated to tip. If they ask you for a tip during your trek, please let us know as well, as it is against company policy.

Do not tip or pay for additional services while on the mountain, other than refreshments while on the mountain. You are welcome to invite your guides after the tour for drinks or dinner (on you) as a thank you in addition to their tips.

You can use US Dollars, Euros, Tz-Shillings or a combination of these. The following daily rates are recommended for the entire group (collectively) as a tip per employee:

  • Mountain guide/guide $15 - $20 per day
  • Assistant Guides/Assistants $10-15 per day
  • Cook $10 - 15USD per day
  • Porters $8 USD per day per porter

All tips are based on one day and one person. To avoid confusion on the first day of your climb, please confirm with your guide the correct number of bags you or your group have. Do not tip other people.

We refer to our general terms and conditions (Term & Condition), which you will receive from us on request. You can also take this from your personal travel experience at the end of your offer.
