  • I was impressed by Aristarick, one of our guides. He was very helpful, motivating and knows a lot. Thanks to him we made it to the top.

  • It was clear from the start of the expedition that Ari was very professional indeed. Above all though was his passion for Tanzania. If you are planning a trip to Tanzania for a trek up Kilimanjaro or a Safari, then I highly recommend this guy. He will look after you very well indeed.

  • Ari of Kilimanjaro Bliss was an amazing host. We had signed up to do our climb to the top of Kilimanjaro with Kilimanjaro Bliss and got so much more than we expected. Ari and his crew took great care of us on the seven days that we took to get to the top and back down again. The food was incredibly delicious and the crew were awesome. It was an amazing adventure and we made it back a day early, so we decided to do a safari to Tarangire National Park.

  • We were blown away with the great lengths the team went through to, not only make us comfortable, but make us feel like royalty. Meals were better than I have had in 5-star restaurants. Although summit day was tough, the journey getting there will be what I remember best. I miss the team already!

 Tipping on Kilimanjaro and Meru

A mountain group can be quite large. The support staff are made up according to the following requirements.

  • Porters – 3 per person, plus 2
  • Lead guide – 1 per group
  • Assistant guide – 1 per 2-3 climbers
  • Cook – 1 per group

A 2-person climb will have staff of 9 people, a 3-person climb will have staff of 12 people, a 4-person climb will have staff of 16 people, etc. 

We encourage you to meet your crew at the mountain gate when they are having their loads weighed to ensure you have the number of crew promised by the company. You can write a list with each crew person’s name and talk to them along the way. At the end of the climb when you give your tips to the lead guide, you can thank porters personally.

It is ideal to have a tipping ceremony during the last meal on the mountain or at the descent gate. Some companies collect the tips for themselves, or guides keep the tips without passing them on to the porters and cooks. Kilimanjaro Bliss works to ensure that all staff get their proper tips. Tips can be placed in individual envelopes. Give your tips to the lead guide at the ceremony. The lead guide will distribute the tips right then, in an open and transparent way. 

8 Day Route (per 4-person group)
1 Lead Guide, $150 – $170
2 Assistant Guides, each $90 – $100
1 Cooks, each $90 – $100
1 Waiter/Porter, $45 – $55
1 Toilet Porter, $45 – $55
12 Porters, each $45 – $55 
18 Total Staff, $1,050 – $1,220  (Average of $260 – $305 per climber)
