Thank you for visiting Bujo Tours, one of the reputable Service provider for Tanzania Safaris and Mount Kilimanjaro Trekking Expeditions. We are and have always provided the highest quality service at reasonable prices yet keeping our topmost safety touchstones on each expedition at our hands.
For that concern, care and keen focus on safety issues, we require all tourists to Tanzania for either Wildlife safaris or Kilimanjaro Climbs to bring their Medical insurance coverage and emergency evacuation insurance which covers non-technical trekking up to 6,000 metres above Sea level. Bujo Tours in partnership with Kilimanjaro SAR (Search & Rescue), assure you a safe Wildlife experience and Mountain Climb.
Please take this on a serious NOTE: Evacuation helicopter pick up will be on designated area on the mountain, where the medical team will immediately start an in-flight medical treatment. Upon landing at KIA/Moshi Airport there will be transport, to take you to your hotel. If you require further medical attention upon landing, you will be taken to a modern private High Altitude Medical clinic ideal for Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Remember, only accepted insurance with Evacuation coverage up to 6,000 meters above Sea Level are recognised.

Can Kilimanjaro SAR help my client to issue a proper insurance?
No, it is very simple to purchase this insurance online or over the phone in any country – even from Tanzania. However, as time goes on we will recommend the best insurers
Do I have to submit my client’s document prior to hiking?
Yes, client must submit insurance detail; confirm to have insurance plan that will cover MEDEVAC up to 6000m. At least 2 days before climbing. The sooner the better — even a month early
Is it possible for Kilimanjaro SAR to evacuate a client without a proper insurance?
Yes, it’s possible. Since we are committed to save lives of all climbers. In case you or clients lack a proper insurance, you/they will have to pay for evacuation costs after they are fully recovered
Is the same insurance required for evacuation on Mount Meru?
Technically no, clients will need MEDEVAC up to 5000m.
What do I do if my client doesn’t have this kind of insurance?
WILL cover MEDEVAC up to 6000m.
What kind of insurance is required for evacuation within national parks and game reserves?
Any travel insurer that lists medical evacuation (altitude detail is unnecessary).
What kind of travel insurance do my clients need for a helicopter evacuation on Mount Kilimanjaro?
A travel insurance, which covers Medical Evacuation up to 6,000 Meters, above sea level. It is very important your clients ask the travel insurance companies to include this in their final prices
Why standard insurance packages do not cover high altitude trekking?
- There is more risk involved for the insurance company, which means less profit.
- The risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) increases dramatically above 2800 Meters, as do the costs of emergency medical services and evacuation
