How much to tip Guides & Porters on Kilimanjaro?

Tipping can be one of the most confusing parts of traveling.  With each country being different, how do you know how much to tip? Here we give you a detailed breakdown on how much you should expect to tip each member of your Kilimanjaro Climbing Crew, including the guide, assistant guide, chef, and porters.

Tipping in Tanzania is not mandatory, but is expected if your guide and team does a good job in taking care of you while on the mountain.

Recommending tipping amounts for Kilimanjaro climbs are the same no matter what route you choose to do.  You should tip $20-$25 per day for the lead guide; $10-$15 per day for the assistant guide; $10-$15 for the chef; and $5-$10 for each porter.

This amount is per group, not per person and should be given to the group in an envelope at the end of the tour.
