How much does it cost to climb Kilimanjaro and what factors affect climbing prices?

Many different factors affect the climbing prices. Kilimanjaro climb package can cost from $1,700 (Kilimanjaro Budget Packages) and $1990 to 3200 (Kilimanjaro standard Packages) to over $7,000 (Kilimanjaro luxury packages) and even above. Combine this knowledge with the fact that there are 250 licensed and hundreds of unlicensed operators in the region and making the right choice becomes a major task. Value-for-money tour operators offer Kilimanjaro climbs packages for around 1500, to $1,990 to $3,200 as I mention above.

We like other value-for-money operators, give our most useful costs to a minimum without compromising on major things such as safety, quality, and maintenance of equipment, catering plentiful and nutritious food, (to both clients and mountain crew), paying our mountain crew fair salaries

Value-for-money companies, also offer a higher guide-to-client degree. This is important in many ways, such as keeping a keen eye on every climber’s health and encouraging you when you’re struggling. All our guides are professional guides, licensed by Kilimanjaro National Park, they all hold the Wilderness First Responder or Wilderness First Aid certifications and have years of experience in summiting the mountain.
