You have to understand how important these hard working porters are. They work SO hard just to get you to the Roof of Africa. They keep you company on your climb, you learn so much about them that you miss them when you are gone.
Even if you are a small group of 2 climbers, it will still require a support staff of 12 to get you to the top. These 18 people include: head guide, assistant guide, chef, tent crew, latrine crew, and many more.
Imagine the crew you need with a group of 15 climbers. We have to bring a support staff of approximately 90. These are all hard workers who are helping YOU achieve your goal of climbing to the Roof of Africa.
Kiliwarrior Expeditions employs its own team of porters; we do not subcontract porters at the gate.
We are active members of the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP) and are committed to their safety and well-being

Mount Meru peeking above the clouds. The views you see while you are climbing are unbelievable. Being above the clouds on the same level as Mount Meru feels accomplishing. - #Kilimanjaro#PhotoOfTheDay goes to @carmen_budau
Throwback Thursday to this photo - taken in 1993. Look at how much more snow there was back then!
Calling everybody who has never climbed Kilimanjaro: you HAVE to come see these glaciers before they melt!

Scientists now expect the few remaining glaciers to melt away completely within the next decade. Don't miss out on these natural wonders of the world. These glaciers are located just 2 degrees south of the equator!
When you climb with us via our 9-Day Lemosho Western-Breach Route, we camp next to these glaciers with a 2 hour short trek to the peak.
No long 6-hour midnight ascent to the peak like the other routes (Marangu, Machame, etc.) #Kilimanjaro#PhotoOfTheDay goes to @earthmattersycds
The Moorland / Heather Zone is the 3rd zone you will come across on your trek up Kilimanjaro. The temperature during the day in this zone can soar around 40 Celcius, while at night at it drops to as low as 0 Celcius. These temperatures are most likely paired with gusting wind, wild grasses, rocky trails, and these giant heathers you see in this photo. Some of these heathers can grow up to 30ft high. - #Kilimanjaro#PhotoOfTheDay goes to @thomasandyb
All our guides are certified wilderness first responders. We provide all types of safety equipment ranging from helicopter evacuation, pulse oximeter, hyperbaric chamber, automated external defibrillator, extra oxygen, and all types of first aid kits.
Make sure you climb Kilimanjaro the right way - safely and responsibly. Altitude sickness is no joke and we take our passion very seriously.
