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.
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.
