Your crew

Undertaking a climb of Kilimanjaro is a proper mountain expedition and as your crew has to carry everything from the gate all the way around and up to your last camp your support team will be quite a large one.

You’ll have a big support crew for your trek. For 2 trekkers typically you’ll have 1 head guide, an assistant guide, a chef, and around 10 porters, some of whom will do additional work, for example, waiter, kitchen assistant, water collectors, tent erectors. And you don’t need to do any work on the mountain our crew will prepare the camp and all equipment ready for your arrival and pack up the camp in the morning after your departure.

We hand-pick all of our crew so you have the best. Your crew can turn your trek from a punishing slog to a lifetime of unique, happy memories. So we look after our crew -we believe that a happy crew makes a happy trek.

We are committed to raising the standards of a porter’s welfare. The porters are allowed to carry a maximum of 20 kg according to park regulations and we ensure that is strictly adhered to. We also pay over the minimum wage and intend to increase salaries in accordance with the cost of living. Their work is invaluable and must be recognised by paying fair salaries and providing good standards of food, tents, and mountain clothing.

Your head guide has ultimate responsibility for you and your fellow climbers as well as the crew whilst on the mountain.

All our guides are fully licensed by KINAPA. There is a comprehensive training program and assessment in order to qualify as a guide which includes high-altitude first aid and rescue. Additionally, all our guides have several years of experience climbing Kilimanjaro and leading expeditions. They have a huge range of experiences to draw upon to make your climb safe and successful.

Our Day Trip
