FAQs


Do I need a visa to enter Tanzania?

Yes, if you are a U.S. citizen, you need a visa to enter Tanzania. You may obtain your Tanzania visa in advance OR upon arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport. The current fee for a visa is $100 for a 12-month multiple-entry tourist visa.

What qualifications do your Kilimanjaro guides have?

Our leaders undergo extensive training to provide the safest Kilimanjaro climbs. Every year we operate an annual Wilderness First Responder (WFR) and Wilderness First Aid (WFA) training in Arusha, Tanzania. A Porters Association also selects the porters; they will carry an identification card allowing them to carry your belongings, and assist you up the mountain.

What gear will I be responsible for carrying up Kilimanjaro?

You will only be responsible for carrying your day pack with the essential and personal items you need to have with you at all times. The porters can carry approximately 30lbs of your luggage; the rest can be stored safely at our office in Arusha.

Do I have to be extremely fit to climb Kilimanjaro?

Yes, this is a Level 5 trip which requires a high level of fitness. The very best way to prepare for climbing to high altitude is to climb to high altitude! Although this is difficult for most people, remember that the higher the altitude and the longer the hikes, the better. This also allows you to get used to your backpack and boots.

After my Kilimanjaro climb, can I add a Tanzania Safari?

Yes, after the climb, celebrate your efforts with a classic luxury camping safari by booking theTanzania Ngorongoro Crater & Serengeti Safari Extension. Call us on 0800-974-0300 to ask about adding this safari extension.

Is the water on the climb safe to drink?

Yes, it is really important that you stay hydrated while at altitude for better acclimatization. All of your drinking water is filtered with a Katydyne water filter.

Does this trip contribute to any local conservation efforts?

Yes. We make a contribution to the Carbon Tanzania fund for every guest that travels on this trip. Carbon Tanzania helps protect forests to reduce carbon emissions and preserve wildlife by working with local communities and governments. Over a million acres of forest was protected in 2019 with the help of Carbon Tanzania, which has helped store over a million tons of carbon to date.

What is the minimum age for this trip?
The standard minimum age for this trip is 18, but check out our private trip options for families and groups with younger guests.
Which route do you follow up Kilimanjaro?
Our fantastic climb starts on the Machame route and then crosses to the Shira route higher up. This gives you far more time to acclimatize and has a much better summit success rate than the straight six-day Machame climb. There is also far more solitude on the wilderness side of the mountain. We have a 98% summit success rate, so picture yourself atop Kilimanjaro-the world at your feet, the sky within reach.
What safety equipment do the guides carry?
As well as being wilderness first responders, our guides carry hyperbaric chambers, oxygen, and satellite phones. Guests' blood oxygen levels are monitored daily.
What are the camps on Kilimanjaro like?
Our sleeping tents offer storm-proof comfort and our chefs create culinary masterpieces. Expect fresh ingredients and gourmet meals.
What is KPAP?
KPAP is the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Program, which MT Sobek supports with donations each year. We ensure that our porters are well-paid, well-looked-after, and integral to our team.
