Rescue Fees

The first are the Kilimanjaro rescue costs. If something goes wrong, the Kilimanjaro National Park’s KINAPA will organize a rescue. This will set you back $20.

Fees for environmental protection

The conservation charge is essentially Kilimanjaro’s entrance fee, or your ticket to the party. This is a 70-dollar daily cost. If you choose a 7-day Lemosho or Machame route, the math is as follows: 7 x 70 USD = $490 USD.

Camping Fees

You will be sleeping at campsites on all Kilimanjaro climbing routes except the Marangu Route. This charge is computed per person per day/night, much as the conservation fees. The costs are fifty dollars ($50).

Hut Charges

You will be living in huts on the Marangu Route. Although the Marangu Route is a very inexpensive climb, you should be aware that the huts cost $60 per night.

For a 5-day Marangu Route, this translates to $300 USD.

Crater Fees

It’s a unique experience that comes at an additional expense. Crater Camp is available for 100 USD each night. A stay at the Crater Camp is generally included in the Lemosho Route’s 9-day variation.

Guides and porter fees

The daily expenses for guides and porters are also included in the cost of climbing Kilimanjaro. Every day, you pay 2 USD each employee.
