Tipping for several climbers starts wondering about tipping for the porter’s, cook’s, and guide’s tips before the climb starts. they have to know how it’ll affect their budget and to make sure they’re paying an honest tip.
Tipping trips should only tend if you received an honest service from us. A typical porter on a seven-day climb should receive around $40 tip; a cook could receive about $80, and a ahead guide could receive $100 or more. the subsequent pointers are divided by the whole number of people within the group, not per person. If you are still uncertain, please just ask us.
A general estimate, to help plan your budget;
one Kilimanjaro climber runs from about $175 to $250 per person depending upon the next factors: the number of people in your group, the quantity of the porters, number of guides, cooks, and sometimes the route. It’s impossible to predict a specific shot advance because it really depends upon what proportion gear is mentioned the mountain and therefore the way much weight is mentioned the mountain. there is no de facto standard of tipping for all companies; it’s only a recommendation from organizations, NGOs, and thus the Tanzanian government.
A couple of things to remember when tipping
Tip on to the porters, not the guides. Bring a packet of letter-size envelopes to distribute the tip Determine a tip for each component of your climbing group: the porters, cooks, assistant guides, and thus the lead guide. Distribute it on the last word morning of the descent usually at the Park Gate Tip in either Tanzanian Shillings or US Dollars The average Tanzanian makes $40 per month. A $40 tip for difficult work for several days could also be an excellent wage and supports the local economy.

- Porters $5 per day per porter
- Cooks $8 to $10 per cook
- Assistant Guides $8 to $10 per guide
