How We Care for Our Porters
Mount Kilimanjaro National Park is quite well regulated, compared to some other areas such as the Himalayas, and as such they ensure that Porters carry a maximum weight of 15kg of company trekking gear and between 5kg & 7kg of personal gear. All Porter packs are weighed before permits are issued at the start of trek on Mount Kilimanjaro.

We believe Kilimanjaro climbs would not be possible without porters so we value our porters and have always created fair working conditions.
We are an approved Partner Company with:
