Health and safety
We will say it once and we will repeat it often: health and safety on the climb is our top priority, and it has to be yours, too.
So, here’s the chance to find out what we do to provide you with the safest climb possible. And you can also learn what you can do to help.
Our advice looks at safety specific to a Kilimanjaro climb at any time, as well as a climb during the coronavirus era, the important question of altitude sickness, how to plan and prepare, the important daily health checks we carry out and the process of rescue and evacuation – in the unlikely event that it becomes necessary.
You will demand that your trip operator has in place the most rigorous processes and procedures to keep you safe on your climb. But what does that really mean?
Here we tell you about our safety-conscious staff, our high-quality equipment and much, much more. It’s all designed to look after you!
Covid-19 safety measures
If you choose a responsible operator such as Easy Travel for your Kilimanjaro adventure, then you will expect that they have put in place the required measures to keep you safe.
And we have done just that! From organising extra staff training to producing Standard Operating Procedures, we have invested heavily to keep your health and safety as our top priority.
Altitude sickness and how to prevent it
The effects of altitude present the biggest obstacles to a successful summiting of Kilimanjaro. And altitude sickness cannot be totally prevented.
Our expert mountain crew will look after you, naturally. But there are things that Easy Travel do, as well as things that you can do, to lessen the chances of you suffering from the effects of altitude.

Treating altitude sickness
As we have said, nothing and nobody can guarantee that you will not get altitude sickness on a mountain such as Kilimanjaro.
So what you want to know next, of course, is what your responsible operator is going to do to treat it, should it happen to you. We can explain that to you.

Daily health checks
You can be fit and healthy at the start of your climb, but altitude can affect your health as you progress up the mountain. That’s why we constantly monitor your health as you climb. Our expert guides can detect any problems and take the necessary actions.
Rescue and evacuation
Climbing Kilimanjaro is a challenge, a proper challenge. Easy Travel’s expertise and experience give you the best chance of getting to the top.
But things can go wrong, so you need to know that your operator can react quickly and correctly to deal with any emergency. At Easy Travel, our mountain crews know just what to do.
