Tipping Guidelines

Those who have climbed Mt Kilimanjaro before know that without the hard work and strength of the mountain crew, one would not be able to fully experience the magnificence of the mountain. Third Tours and Safaris, we pay our crew salary suggested by the Kilimanjaro National Park and Tanzania Tour Operator Association. However, many crew also heavily depend on tips to support their families. The following are recommended daily rates for the entire group to tip per crew

    1. Chief guide – $20 – 30 / day
    2. Assistant guide – $15 – 25 / day
    3. Cook – $12 – 15 / day
    4. Waiter – $10 – 12 /day
    5. Porter – $7 – 10 / day
    6. Summit porter – $12 – 15 / day

In general for all Kilimanjaro routes except Marangu you will have:

  • 1 Climber: 1 Chief guide, 1 cook and 3 porters
  • 2 Climbers: 1 Chief guide, 1 assistant guide, 1 cook and 6 porters
  • 3 Climbers: 1 Chief guide, 1 assistant guide, 1 cook and 9 porters
  • 4 Climbers: 1 Chief guide, 1 assistant guide, 1 cook and 12 porters

For Marangu you will have:

  • 1 climber 1 Chief guide, 1 cook 3porters
  • 2 climbers 1 Chief guide, 1 assistance guide 1 cook 6 porters
  • After three clients 2 porters for 1 climber

    These are estimates and actual numbers may vary depending on the needs of the group. It is ideal to have a tipping ceremony with the climbers and crew on the last day on the mountain. Ideally tips should be given to the individual crew members directly to ensure the full amount of the tip is received.
