HIRING EQUIPMENT

Hiring equipment is relatively cheap and easy in Tanzania. Once we check your gear, our team will take you to a hire shop where you can hire anything you don’t have. Payment is by cash upon hiring and after your climb, we’ll return the items for you.

Please note that hire shops often do not maintain their equipment so there is no guarantee the item you are hiring will be water proof or warm. We recommend you buy or hire a few essential items to manage this risk.
