Health and Safety
Health and Safety

It's safe to climb Kilimanjaro when you travel with a reputable tour operator who has your health and safety as their number one priority. The biggest safety issue on a Kilimanjaro climb is the extreme altitude (please read Kilimanjaro altitude sickness so you understand the situation). Note that you must have travel insurance that covers you for hiking up to 6,000 m above sea level to be allowed to climb Kilimanjaro with Follow Alice. A good all-round article to read is Kilimanjaro safety.
