We are a Sustainable Travel Company in Tanzania; our focus is on organizing tours with an ethical and professional approach to exceed tourist expectations. We specialize in Ethical Mountain Kilimanjaro Climbing, Wildlife Safari and Zanzibar Beach Holiday in Tanzania.
Eco-Africa Climbing makes better places for people to live in and better places to visit; we offer treks and safaris to all responsible travellers. We care about our Porters, who are the ones who make Kilimanjaro tours possible for the vast majority of climbers and who do all the heavy lifting. Fair and ethical treatment of our porters (crew) is one of the essential priorities of Eco-Africa Climbing when we do climb.
We are proud to be a Partner of the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP). All our climbs are monitored and audited by KPAP.

We are a Sustainable Travel Company in Tanzania Doing Ethical Kilimanjaro Climbs.
What are ethical Kilimanjaro Climbs?
We are doing ethical climbs and responsible Trekking; we believe the tourism industry has an obligation and an excellent opportunity to protect the world’s natural habitats, cultural heritage sites, and communities. We actively promote environmental sustainability and social responsibility. We are not doing cheap climbs; cheap climb means we are doing tourism while exploiting our Porters, who are the ones who make Kilimanjaro trek possible for the vast majority of climbers and who do all the heavy lifting. Fair and ethical treatment of our porters (crew) is one of the essential priorities of Eco-Africa Climbing when we do climb.
We have a great team of beautiful guides and crew to accompany you up the Mountain Kilimanjaro. A trek up to the top of Kilimanjaro has proved to be one of the most rewarding and incredible experiences that our guests have experienced.
Time after time, our clients’ comments upon their return are filled with a combination of awe, exhaustion, wonder, and delight! Our climbers also are so pleased with our crew of guides and porters, both male and female, and how helpful and spirited they are, and our cooks that create a bounty of fresh, tasty meals that fuel your body for your extreme exertion. We can handle most special menu requests (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, kosher, food allergies, etc.)
Our Mountain guides are trained in high levels of first aid( Wilderness First Responder certification). They will be monitoring you up the mountain, checking your oxygen levels, pulse, and blood pressure a couple of times daily. They carry emergency oxygen if anyone needs it. Overall the success rate of reaching the summit with Eco-Africa Climbing guides is 98%! Our guides and mountain crew are fantastic at helping to motivate people with their positive spirit and singing and encouraging them to summit.
Eco-Africa Climbing is a Proud Partner of the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP). KPAP is a local non-profit organization dedicated to the fair treatment of porters and crew on Kilimanjaro (www.kiliporters.org). KPAP is the International Mountain Explorers Connection (IMEC) local initiative and performs IMEC’s Partner for Responsible Travel Program (www.mountainexplorers.org). We are proud to be collaborating with KPAP’s monitoring process.
We at Eco-Africa Climbing follow strict standards in more than ten treatment criteria to ensure that we act responsibly towards our mountain crew and receive fair and proper treatment. KPAP reviews each climb to ensure compliance. Because we collaborated with KPAP, you can be confident you are making an ethical choice by being a part of the commitment to a humanitarian cause. Please get in touch with [email protected] to confirm this.
Note: Operators may claim that they treat their porters fairly, but they may not collaborate with or be monitored by KPAP, which is free to join. We voluntarily allow KPAP to examine our climbs to ensure proper treatment practices.
Please remember that the lower the climb costs, the higher the probability that an operator may not adhere to proper treatment standards? As a result, well-meaning individuals and organizations inadvertently become part of porter exploitation by climbing with a company that sacrifices their staff’s salaries and working conditions to offer low climb prices.
