'''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. However, Be aware that fees not only vary due to route and length of climb, but primarily depend on the quality of the tour operator and service delivery. Do your research and ask as many questions as possible before you decide on a tour operator. Responsible tour operators who treat their staff ethically and employ professional guides who are trained to look after your well-being are more expensive. '''At the above starting prices, it is not possible to operator a climb profitably, legally, and without exploiting your porters.'''
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.
