Tips
Although not mandatory, we recomend to thank your mountain crew and leave tips for them ($200–$250 per participant)
You've Asked Us:
Can I get the same trip for a lower price?
You can, but providers with cheaper prices usually employ their crews for free - to work for tips only, so expect additional tips charges of about $1000 after you finish your climb. We choose to work with the providers who pay salary to their crews, so you don't have to tip that much, maybe a couple of hundred bucks for the whole crew if you feel like it.
Is Tanzania safe?
Generally speaking, Tanzania is a safe and hassle-free counrty, unlike neighbouring Kenya, Rwand a Uganda. There has not been any political or social disturbance for a long time and none are expected any time soon. That being said, some basics like not leaving your hotel or walking alone after 9PM is still highly advised.
What clothes and gear do I need?
You need two pairs of good hiking boots, a couple of jackets (one winter and one fleece), a couple of hiking pants, a small backpack, a duffel bag and a sleeping bag. These are the essentials. Drop us a line in WhatApp or an email and we will send you the full gear list. No special climbing gear is required, and if you don't have something you can always rent it in Tanzania for cheap.
Do I need any vaccines to go to Tanzania?
No, you don't. There are no necessary vaccines by the law, but you can always consult your physician and take precautious measures, just in case.
Do I need to apply for a visa?
No, you don't. Single entry Visas can be obtained upon the arrival at the Kilimanjaro International Airport.
Should I get any training?
Usually it's enough to ged cardio twice per week, but the best way to prepare is to hike and hill-walk in the weeks leading up to your departure. You should be comfortable walking for four to eight hours a day. If you want a training plan - drop us an email or a line in What's App.
I am a vegetarian/halal/on the other diet, can I get the menu adjusted?
Sure, vegetarian/gluten-free/halal options are always available at no extra cost.
What if other climbers are too slow? I don't want to be held back by that.
If the other climbers are too slow or decide to go down, a part of the crew will accompany them. The rest of the team will support you. We have enough guides in our groups to ensure that everyone walks at a comfortable pace.
Can I book extra day trips?
Absolutely yes! Tanzania with is pristine wild nature is the #1 country for safari! Our professional guides, a whole fleet of off-road jeeps and a team of travel consultants are here to make your day trip unforgetable!
If you would like to book extra day trips - let us know!
