  • Passport Scan 
  • Email Address 
  • Yellow Fever Certificate        

COST OF MEDICAL PRECAUTIONS (VACCINES FOR UK CITIZENS)

The cost of Medical Precautions such as vaccinations, other personal medications can be approximately $100 for a citizen from the UK. It should be noted that UK citizens can avail of their vaccinations for free through the NHS. The National Health Service is the publicly-funded healthcare system of the United Kingdom. All our guides and trek leaders from Jerry Tanzania Tours have been trained by independent, UK-based medical specialists and are proficient in first aid. Apart from this they also carry oxygen cylinders on all treks for emergency use.

The most essential vaccine requirements are malaria and yellow fever. The yellow fever vaccine is recommended for people from 9 months of age who are traveling to:

  • An area where yellow fever is found, including parts of sub-Saharan Africa, South America, Central America, and Trinidad in the Caribbean.

You must be vaccinated at least 10 days before you travel.

KILIMANJARO TIPPING COST FOR UK CITIZENS

Many times we are asked – How Much Should I Tip on Kilimanjaro? After analyzing various KPAP registered companies (including Jerry Tanzania Tours) we have concluded that the following rates are the basic tipping guide for all the Kilimanjaro Crew Members:

  • Main Guide: $20 per day
  • Assistant Guide: $12 – $15 per day
  • Cook: $12 -$15 per day
  • Porter: $5 – $10 per day

The entire cost is around $200 to $300 depending on the size of the crew members.

You do not have to panic though as the entire amount is split into the whole group, not per individual climber. For specialized private climbs, our groups will operate with a minimum of 2 clients (using a Tanzanian guide). Apart from this we also send a UK leader with groups of 6 or more.

Cost of Rental Gears for UK Travellers During Kilimanjaro Climb

Depending on whether you have all the Kilimanjaro Gear List you will require spending at least $800 on a completely new set of Kilimanjaro Gears. But mostly we advise on renting gears for Kilimanjaro Climbing as it saves so much cost. The cost of renting gears is $100.

Jerry Tanzania Tours provides you with a warm sleeping bag that is clean and comfortable for around $30 for the entire trek. While you may have to bring your liner to give extra warmth try not to go with a budget company that cuts cost on safety equipment, underpaying crew members, crew members carry above limit weight, tents poor quality, and so forth.

KILIMANJARO TRAVEL INSURANCE COST FOR UK CITIZENS

Any basic Kilimanjaro Travel Insurance could cost you from $80 to $100. Make sure your policy covers a unique benefit of Search and Rescue while Trekking up to 6,000 meters which is a separate to Emergency Medical Helicopter Rescue (where your location is known).
