Kilimanjaro Prices

We find that when most climbers book their expedition they like to know that everything is covered in the published Kilimanjaro prices, from arrival at the airport to departure again, hopefully via Kilimanjaro’s summit.

Kilimanjaro Prices

Note that KINAPA-enforced regulations require that all climbs on Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru be guided by a registered Kilimanjaro guide and therefore Superlite climbs are the closest one may legally come to an unsupported climb, with just the guide and obligatory assistant guides being provided by Team Kilimanjaro.

Team Kilimanjaro’s climb prices are graduated, with the cost per person being reduced as the size of the booking group increases.

Our Comprehensive 2016 Meru & Kilimanjaro Prices

Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro prices appearing on this page are given per person, and are valid for climbs beginning between 1st January and 31st December 2016. Single booking climbers can reduce their climb costs using information available here. Use this link for information on how to pay for your Kilimanjaro climb.

Please note that the number of days indicated below refers to your time spent on the mountain. For example, if you book a 7 days TK Rongai climb and arrive into Arusha on 31st January you’d normally start your climb on 1st February, leave the mountain on the afternoon of 7th February, and fly home (or begin your safari or onward movements) on 8th February.

VAT Added to Kilimanjaro Park Fees from 1st July 2016

On 29th June 2016, the government department responsible for charging park entrance fees announced “The Management of Tanzania National Parks would like to inform all our esteemed customers that the Finance Act 2016 has withdrawn exemptions of VAT in tourism services”, which meant that with just two days notice, all park fees would increase by 18%. The prices below reflect this VAT-added increase and are therefore current with effect from 1st July 2016.

In case readers are confused as to how a national government is capable of demanding an additional $150 per person with just 2 days’ notice once prices have already been agreed between the operator and the client, please be assured that this is perfectly normal conduct for the Tanzanian government. However, since Team Kilimanjaro believes that it is entirely unreasonable to request additional costs once an agreement on price has been made, Team Kilimanjaro undertakes to accept this loss ourselves in the case of all clients that have already paid their booking deposit and are committed to climbing with us.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

Great Experience, very friendly and knowledgeable owner, staff, and guides. They were able to accommodate our last minute scheduling with no issues. Would recommend to anyone.

Austin

After writing to several operators and after an interview with them at my work address in Tanzania, TK stood far out above the rest. Why? Clear, efficient and very fast answers to my questions, they look very well after their porters ( that was a nr. 1 for me), extremely kind but most of all they are able to understand each person’s need and accommodate these.

Marieke

I can’t recommend Simon Kaaya, our chief guide, enough and pretty much everyone else in our crew from our assistant guides, Aristarick and Rama, to our cook Gidion to Samwel and Theophil who waited on us everyday. They became a part of our family for a week…
