Hi Rory,

Since climbing Kilimanjaro is not considered as a technical climb or an expedition to a remote area (like climbing in Himalaya or crossing the Greenland glacier)a normal personal travel insurance should cover what you need instead of getting a special SAR insurance. This would however need to be confirmed by the insurance provider in writing. In some cases the travel provider will ask for a small extra payment for the short period that the trek will take in order to cover you fully.
Using a normal travel insurance obtained by each member could therefore be a better practice rather than finding a single insurance provider to cover a group of different nationalities.

Good luck!
