I climbed with a company called foot2afrika, and they treat their employees with respect, and make sure that they work under good conditions. I had a wonderful experience, despite the altitude sickness, and the guides and porters made it an unforgettable experience.

I knew there was a cheaper deal.Now, a cheaper local company and a cheaper hotel ( hostel) and I am in. I am sure there is a better deal.

Hotel Taganga

An essential preparation before leaving for the backpacker is to sort out travel insurance.

Paul Deakin

Or book with a UK operator that is fully bonded and insured, have a private climb with your own guides and crew and still only pay £1245 for a 6 day Machame route see www.privatekilimanjaro.com

If you book through the local companies you should make sure that all the porters and guides, chefs get paid. One of my friends climbed Kili and discovered afterwards that the only money the porters and guides got was the tip that they gave them. I think it is better to pay more, and make sure that the companies treat their employees fair.
That is the problem with the cheapest companies, and you can never be sure that they have the proper equipment or the experience to do a climb.
I climbed with a company called foot2afrika, and they treat their employees with respect, and make sure that they work under good conditions. I had a wonderful experience, despite the altitude sickness, and the guides and porters made it an unforgettable experience. I would recommend to check out www.foot2afrika.com if you want an adventure, which is fair both to you and the staff. It doesn't have to be as much as 1,750 for eleven days either. Also it is cheaper if you are in a group, for example 8 days and 7 nights, 6 days climbing Kilimanjaro and two nights at a hotel. Depending on the size of the group the prices will be as follow in USD: 1 person:1670, 2persons:1450, 3-5persons:1245, 6-12persons:1100 and 13 and above:1000.
Also, it is important to give something back to the local people, so included in these prices is a ten percent contribution to help to further develop the community. To assure you that those money actually go to support the local community they will be more than happy to show you exactly what it is that the money go to. This is my opinion, since there are so many companies where all the money go to the guys on the top, and the people doing all the hard work are left with pocket-change.

@ Paul: don't worry, Expedition Kilimanjaro works very closely with a local hotel and the guides directly from the Kilimanjaro National Park Guides Association. If you find a better deal, let me know.

I knew there was a cheaper deal.Now, a cheaper local company and a cheaper hotel ( hostel) and I am in. I am sure there is a better deal.

Ramon Stoppelenburg

Or just book through local companies or supporters of local companies like http://www.expeditionkilimanjaro.com and the price is always $ 1,750 per person (11 days adventure with 7 days up the Machame Route AND 4 nights at a hotel).

Did I say INCLUDING 4 NIGHTS AT A LOCAL HOTEL? Right.

No deal cutting at all.
