carry with you depending on the days trek. In the evenings you’ll have a 3 course

If for any reason you need to descend from the trek early you will be accompanied by one of your guides to the nearest accessible gate and we will meet you there for any assistance you require. However, there will additional costs for transfers and accommodation. If it's for medical reasons we will assist and accompany you to the hospital. Keep any receipts for your insurance company.
Undertaking a climb of Kilimanjaro is a proper mountain expedition and as your crew have to carry everything from the gate all the way round 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 have supported the work of KPAP (Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project) for many years and are committed to raising the standards of porter welfare. The porters are allowed to carry a maximum of 20Kg 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, 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 licenced by KINAPA. There is a comprehensive training programme 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 climbing Kilimanjaro and leading expeditions under their belts and have a huge amount of experience to draw upon to make your climb safe and fun.
