At Amani Afrika, we take safety seriously.
We understand that altitude sickness, or “acute mountain sickness” (AMS), is not a joke, and that it can affect many climbers on Mt Kilimanjaro. In addition to having highly experienced mountain guides who can recognize the symptoms of altitude sickness in the early stages, we provide oxygen tanks for emergency use on Mt Kilimanjaro. This is included in the standard price.
In the unlikely event where a rescue is needed on Mount Kilimanjaro, our crew is ready to act. Our phones are on 24/7. Our guides know where to get cell phone reception on Kilimanjaro. In addition to the mobile network, all ranger posts are equipped with radios for communication. When there is an emergency, we are ready to respond immediately. We can efficiently coordinate a rescue so you will be carried down the slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro or to a heliport without delay.
