It was a disaster. My first climb on Kilimanjaro in 2008 climbing with some friends. The Kilimanjaro tour company we used cut corners every possible way. Bad camping equipment, poor hygiene in the kitchen, we all got sick. But we weren’t the only ones. Even the porters and guides were miserable, telling us how badly they were treated – low pay, bad working conditions, poor equipment and more!
Still, the startling landscapes, the challenge of the mountain and its wonderful people captured my heart and soul… and I was hooked on the magic of Kilimanjaro.
I decided right then I would improve the climbing experience and start a Kilimanjaro climbing company with a different attitude. One that nourished the climbers and the crew. That paid a fair wage, had great equipment, offered delicious and nutritious food, and focused on the safety and well being of both the clients and crew.
Back on that first climb, I promised my porters and guides I would come back and hire them, and we would have a company that would offer the finest climbing experience on Kilimanjaro.
So, this is what I did. And now I invite you to come join us and share the grandest adventure in Africa.
