Obtaining the right travel insurance is a critical part of preparing for your Kilimanjaro climbing adventure. Here's what you need to know about insurance coverage
  • 1. Comprehensive Travel Insurance:

    • Prioritize purchasing comprehensive travel insurance that covers a wide range of potential issues, including medical emergencies, trip cancellations, and equipment loss or damage.

    2. Medical Coverage:

    • Ensure your travel insurance includes adequate medical coverage for high-altitude trekking. Verify that it covers the cost of medical evacuation in the event of a serious injury or altitude sickness.

    3. Trip Cancellation and Interruption:

    • Kilimanjaro climbs can be affected by unexpected events such as flight cancellations or personal emergencies. Choose a policy that offers coverage for trip cancellations and interruptions.

    4. Equipment and Gear Coverage:

    • If you’re bringing valuable equipment like cameras or other electronic devices, confirm that your insurance policy covers loss, theft, or damage to such items.

    5. Adventure Sports Coverage:

    • Kilimanjaro climbing is considered an adventure activity. Ensure that your insurance policy explicitly covers high-altitude trekking and adventure sports.

    6. Search and Rescue Insurance:

    • We provide Search and Rescue Insurance as part of your Kilimanjaro climbing package. This coverage is designed to assist in the event of an emergency, including rescue operations if needed.

    7. Amref Insurance:

    • Additionally, we offer Amref Insurance, which provides medical coverage and assistance during your Kilimanjaro climb.

    8. Travel Insurance Responsibility:

    • Please note that while we provide Search and Rescue Insurance and Amref Insurance, Travel Insurance, which covers other aspects of your journey such as trip cancellations, personal belongings, and additional medical expenses, is the responsibility of the guests. It is essential for guests to secure their travel insurance policies independently.

    9. Pre-Existing Medical Conditions:

    • If you have pre-existing medical conditions, disclose them to your insurance provider and verify whether they are covered. Some policies may offer coverage for stable pre-existing conditions.

    10. Read the Fine Print: – Carefully read and understand the terms and conditions of your insurance policy, including coverage limits, deductibles, and claim procedures.

    11. Emergency Contact Information: – Keep a copy of your insurance policy and emergency contact information with you at all times during your Kilimanjaro climb.

    12. Documenting Your Adventure: – Take photos or videos of your equipment and gear before your trip. This documentation can be helpful in the event of loss or damage.
