'''Organised Tour (incl. Park Fees)'''
To climb Kilimanjaro you have to use a licenced guide. If you are not well-versed in the logistics of Kilimanjaro climbs then the only realistic way to trek Kilimanjaro is through a tour operator. No-frills 5 day, 4 night treks up the Marangu Route are being offered from around $1,100. However, if you are not accustomed to altitude, it is highly recommended you take a 7 or 8 day trip which start at over $1,600 depending on the route.
For a responsible no-frills climb, you should budget at least $1,800 for 7 to 8 days. A reasonable mid-range offer including airport transfers, pre/post climb accommodation, good quality tents and a private toilet tent would be in the range of $1,900 to $2,500. For more luxurious climb, you will be set back by as much as $2500-$3,000. Luxuries include hot showers, walk-in size tents and sleeping cots / frame beds. For a veritable 5-star climb with highest attention to safety, best equipment, organic food etc., prices can easily soar into the $5,000 to $8,000 range.
