Local Guides, Years of Experience, 98% Summit Success Rate.
Kilimanjaro guides all receive a licence to work on Kilimanjaro from the National Park. Without this they are unable to operate as guides. The licence is obtained after several years of experience of working on the mountain as porters or cooks then as assistant guides after which they attend courses in First Aid, Mountain Rescue, Flora and Fauna and History.
Our porters take care of you. So we take care of them.
Kilimanjaro Heroes employ, empower, and reward local guides and porters
We exist to uplift the people that will take you to the top. Tanzania is among the poorest nations in the world with a per capita annual income of only 700 USD. Guides and porters are some of the least paid workers in our society. Many other trekking operators take advantage of this and pay their guides and porters very minimal wages (as little as 3 USD per day). We however exist to empower each other. Trust that we pay at least twice the average local salary from the fees you pay us without charging you more. Let us take you to the top and at the same time feel great about providing for those in need.
