Introduction

While conversing about the Kilimanjaro Crew, one of our biggest plus points is the truth that our Kilimanjaro Guides are the experts on the mountain and they do everything to achieve your dream of climbing and summiting while keeping your safety as their utmost priority. Our Kilimanjaro Crew always has smiles on their faces, laughing and playing as they try to accomplish all their hard tasks. Some of our trusted Kilimanjaro Porters have worked with African Scenic Safaris for well over a decade now. They are always well prepared to meet our high expectations for client care during Kilimanjaro Climbing Tours.

Know our Crew

On all our Climbing of Mount Kilimanjaro, we run at a ratio of approximately five support staff per one of our dedicated climbers. This means that on some of our larger group climbs, there may be as many as 60 support staff including – our very experienced guides, our very talented Mountain cooks, Kilimanjaro Porters, kitchen crew, tent crew, and toilet tent crew. Our Kilimanjaro Crew is the one who makes it fun – there are songs, dances, games, and a chance to make new friends.

How our Crews Help

There is a remarkable level of team coordination as well. Our Kilimanjaro Crew is in charge of a lot of things during Mount Kilimanjaro Climb. They collect and purify the water, make meals, set up and take down tents, run ahead to the next camp and arrange for campsites, and resupply the climb with fresh fruit and vegetable.

They are always prepared to respond to medical problems, help pack bags, and the porters load and manage all of this with smiles on their faces in fundamentally challenging circumstances. They work hard at high altitudes in changing temperatures and in dusty conditions while Mount Kilimanjaro Climbs.                         Our Kilimanjaro Crew always has smiles on their faces, laughing and playing as they try to accomplish all their hard tasks.
