Kilimanjaro Crews

Climbing Kilimanjaro is a challenging and rewarding adventure that would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of the Kilimanjaro Crew. These individuals are essential to the success and safety of climbers, as well as the economic well-being of the local community. In this blog post, we will explore who the Kilimanjaro crews are, their importance to the climbing experience, and how we can honor and support them.

Who are the Kilimanjaro Crews?

The Kilimanjaro crews are a group of local individuals who provide support and assistance to climbers on their journey up the mountain. They include porters, guides, cooks, and other staff members who help with logistics, equipment, and meals. These crews are an essential part of the climbing experience and play a critical role in ensuring the safety and success of climbers.

How Do Our Crews Help To Climb Kilimanjaro?

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. The support team for a climb performs a variety of tasks such as collecting and cleaning water, cooking meals, pitching and packing up tents, scouting out future campsites, and restocking the climbers with fresh fruits and vegetables..

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. 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.
