$15,000,000 in Park Fees

Think about it. An average of 25,000 people climb Kilimanjaro each year. Each person will pay ON AVERAGE about $600 toward park fees. These are the fees that go to the Tanzanian government/park authorities. 25,000 multiplied by $600 = $15 million dollars.

I know they have some expenses on the mountain, but if they can’t even get a descent toilet ANYWHERE on the mountain, it kind of makes you wonder what they are doing with that money.
