Our prices – and what’s included (and what’s not!)

Our prices for 2019

The following are our prices for 2019. There are some important things to note about this table:

  1. All prices in the table below are per person.
  2. If you are a solo trekker, you can either book a private trek – in which case, the prices in the first column are relevant; or you can opt to join one of our public treks, in which case the prices in the second column are for you.
  3. The number of trekkers on the top row refer to the number of people in your booking, not the number of people on your trek as a whole. So, for example, if there are four people in your booking, but eight people on the trek in total (ie your group plus four others), then you pay the four-person price, not the eight-person price.
  4. The prices for two or more people are the same whether you book a private trek or join a public one.
  5. Though it is possible to ascend to the summit and descend again in just five days, the minimum duration for our treks is six days. We think that five-day treks do not give trekkers sufficient time to acclimatise properly, so for reasons of safety we will not book treks that are less than six days in length.
  6. There are significant discounts to be had for trekkers under 16 years old and for those with an East African passport. These discounts can amount to almost US$1000 on the longer treks. The discount comes from reductions in the various park fees. (You can read more about these discounts in the guide book that we send you when you book with us.) We promise to pass on every last cent of this reduction to you, and will not take any profit from this for ourselves. You may have to send us a scan of your passport proof of age/
  7. If you require a trek that isn’t listed in the table – an 8-day Machame trek, for example, or 9-day Lemosho Route – then just get in touch and we’ll quote you a price; as a guideline, expect each extra day to cost about US$250 per person.
