I understand that I must have personal travel and medical insurance for this expedition *
Your expedition fee does include temporary membership of the AMREF flying doctor service, but you should carry your own travel and medical insurance in addition. Please make sure that you are covered for trekking and/or mountaineering at high altitude. There is no technical climbing involved in the expedition. Many insurers have a specific category for Kilimanjaro.
