SAFETY PRECAUTIONS ON MOUNT KILIMANJARO.

Your Safety is our First priority. Before you even arrive on the mountain this begins with planning routes that ensure good acclimatization, we recruit and train the very best guides and we use world class equipment.

Once you are on the mountain we do everything possible to ensure you remain healthy. We monitor your health closely to spot the early warning signs of problems. As a company we run a full Safety Management System. This begins with establishing clear safety objectives then looks at detailed risk assessments. We then design our procedures to minimize those risks.

Lindo Travel delivers the highest quality safety measures on Mount Kilimanjaro. We take the following steps on your climb while you enjoy your lifetime adventure in Tanzania.

We carry oxygen tanks on all our climbs.

We carry a portable hyperbaric chamber (Gamow bag) on all our climbs and have a system in place for immediate evacuation off the mountain.

We using a pulse ox meter we will monitor your oxygen saturation and heart rate twice a day or more often if necessary.

Every morning we listen to your lung sounds with a stethoscope to assess if there is any fluid on the lungs.

We will monitor your water intake to assure proper hydration. Safety precautions on Kilimanjaro climb.

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If AMS is not treated it can lead to more serious conditions like High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and/or High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE) each year a very small number of climbers die on Kilimanjaro. These deaths could be avoided if all licensed first aid guides who had high altitude medical training and carried oxygen and a portable hyperbaric bag. We travel with life saving equipment at all times when at high altitude. This equipment includes oxygen tanks, and a pressure bag, which are only used in the most life threatening altitude sickness cases.

As part of our daily safety routine, we record and monitor various information pertaining to your body’s reaction to increasingly higher elevations.

Our trips have been arranged to use daily climbing schedules and sleep to enhance your body’s acclimatization.

Our meals emphasize carbohydrates and other foods that increase the generation of heat and energy as we move to higher altitudes.

Moreover, we move slowly. With light exercises and celebrations at every camp to make your trip in the mountains enjoyable.
