Frequently Asked Questions

    • Can 70+ years old tourists climb Kilimanjaro?

      Yes, there are travellers in their 70s and 80s who summit Kilimanjaro every year. However, it is recommended to seek professional medical advice first to ensure the person gets clearance from doctor. If they decide to trek the Kilimanjaro, it is also recommended to take one of the longer routes which provide more time for acclimatization.

    • Is it common to tip the support staff?

      Yes, it is and the recommended tipping amounts are the same no matter what route the hikers choose to do. The tip for the lead guide is usually $20-$25 per day; the tip for assistant guide and the chef is $10-$15 per day and the tip for each porter is $5-$10 per day.

    • Is any previous experience needed to climb Kilimanjaro?

      No, the climb to Mount Kilimanjaro does not require any previous climbing skills. On the Machame, Lemosho, Shira and Umbwe Route there is a section called the Barranco Wall that requires basic bouldering skills, however, no preparation is required for this section of the hike.

    • Is it possible to climb Kilimanjaro without a guide?

      No. All standard Kilimanjaro treks usually include not only a registered guide but porters to carry the trekkers gear, gas, tents and food. According to the Tanzanian law, it is not possible for travellers to climb Kilimanjaro without the support staff.

    • What is the night time temperature like on the summit of Kilimanjaro?

      The night time temperature at the Uhuru Point can range between 20 and -20 degrees Fahrenheit (-7 to -29 degrees Celsius). Due to Mount Kilimanjaro's great height, the mountain creates its own weather.
