Kilimanjaro Rescue

ECO Tours prioritizes the safety and well-being of climbers on Mount Kilimanjaro. To ensure efficient and quick Kilimanjaro rescue operations, the company has introduced the Helicopter Rescue Service. In the past, helicopter evacuations were rare due to the unavailability of a local Kilimanjaro Rescue Team. However, with locally based Kilimanjaro Rescue Helicopters now in operation, evacuations can be carried out from the rescue site within 15 minutes.

Before embarking on a Kilimanjaro climb, climbers are advised to obtain Kilimanjaro Travel and Rescue Insurance. This insurance covers various aspects of rescue and evacuation, including helicopter rescue services. It is recommended to check the travel insurance policy to ensure it provides coverage for evacuation up to 6,000 meters above sea level and medical treatments. In the event of altitude sickness or acute mountain sickness, Kilimanjaro Search and Rescue teams are readily available at any time. These teams work in collaboration with travel insurance companies, eliminating concerns about insurance coverage during evacuations. The cost of Kilimanjaro evacuation insurance claims is estimated to be around $6,000, covering expenses from evacuation to treatment.

We are committed to making Kilimanjaro the safest tourist destination in Africa. To achieve this mission, several search and rescue companies are equipped with high-altitude helicopters and fully-trained medical personnel. They provide emergency evacuation from feasible landing areas on the mountain, ensuring timely response and assistance. Previously, helicopter evacuations were challenging due to the absence of local operators. Helicopter units had to be deployed from major centers like Nairobi, resulting in significant delays. However, with search and rescue companies now based in Moshi, a helicopter can be readily available on the mountain. It is important to note that adverse mountain weather conditions may prevent helicopter landings. In such cases, a manual evacuation using a stretcher provided by the National Park will be arranged.

By offering comprehensive Kilimanjaro rescue services, including helicopter evacuations and collaboration with travel insurance companies, ECO Tours aims to provide climbers with a safe and secure experience on Mount Kilimanjaro.
