Safari Tips for your guide and cook:

  • $15-20/day for driver/guide and $10/day for cook (basic camping) for the whole safari group.

Expectations

  • Tips should not be dependent on whether you summit or not, but rather whether they were professional and had your best interests in mind.
  • If your guides and porters have not met your expectations, please inform Zara at the Springlands Hotel immediately, and don’t feel obligated to give a tip. If they press you for a tip during your trek, inform Zara as well, as this is against company policy.
