Tipping Guidelines

To show satisfaction and appreciation, tipping is commonly used in Tanzania. It's a sign of good service and part of good manners when climbing Kilimanjaro. If the service was of high standard, we encourage you to give a generous tip; if the service did not meet your expectations, please adjust your tip accordingly.

Lyimo Expeditions Kilimanjaro's staff are paid a fair and proper living wage – no one relies on tips as their only income source. However, it provides valuable relational benefits and additional financial assistance.

Kilimanjaro Climb

How much do I tip?
You can either choose to gather your total tip amount in a pool with the rest of the climbers which we later divide evenly among the crew, or if you would like to have control over who's receiving what, you can give your tip from an individual to an individual.

As a guide line, we recommend that each climber calculate their total tip offering as: 10 – 15% of the total climb cost OR $50 – 70 for each day on the mountain. This amount is close to the following tip ranges divided by each crew member position: Porters receive $6/day, cook(s) receive $10/day, assistant guide(s) receive $20/day and trip leader/head guide receives $40/day.

When do I give my tip?
Lyimo Expeditions Kilimanjaro knows that a successful climb of Kilimanjaro is built on team work and support of all climbers, guides and crew. To appreciate this team effort, the tip is given the last day of the trip after we have celebrated.
