Tip guide per group Kilimanjaro:
Head guide $80-$150, assistant guide $60-80, chef $50-$70, porter $25-$40 (per porter).

Kilimanjaro – staffing summary example (approximate only)

  • 2 Persons climbing – 1 head guide, 1 assistant guide, 1 chef, 10-12 porters
  • 4 Persons climbing – 1 head guide, 1 assistant guide, 1 chef, 16 porters
  • 6 Persons climbing – 1 head guide, 2 assistance guides, 1 chef, 24 porters

On average we use 4 porters per climber, slightly more when 3 or less climbers (5-6 per climber). The number of porters is subject to change depending on the amount of luggage each client wishes to take up the mountain, we strongly recommend a maximum of 10-12kgs per climber.
