Any guidelines on tipping my porters and guides?

  1. Your porters are a big reason why you’ll hopefully be standing tall on the top of Africa. Apart from setting up your tents, preparing your meals and being mindful of your safety, they (more than anyone) want to see you make it to Uhuru Peak. Your tips should not be dependent on whether you made it to the summit or not.

    Your tips should reflect whether your supporting team were professional and had your safety and best interests in mind from start to finish.

    Professional companies must introduce a system to make sure every climber, on completion of the climb, completes a form stating the amount being given as a tip. This way the tip allocations are transparent and fair. Speak to us about this system so you can take tips into consideration for your climb.
