What is Kilimanjaro tipping?
Kilimanjaro tipping is an essential and customary way of paying your mountain crew. It recognises their hard work in helping you summit. It is considered a universal custom on Kilimanjaro.
What is the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project?
The Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP) is a legally registered Tanzanian not-for-profit organisation. Their mission is to improve the working conditions of the porters on Kilimanjaro and in turn promote socially responsible Kilimanjaro climbs. KPAP is not a porter membership organisation or a tour operating business. They do not collect any fees from porters or climbing companies. They publish the recommended total compensation for Kilimanjaro porters and monitor compliance by their voluntary Partner for Responsible Travel companies.
