  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 Climb; 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 are proud to be a Partner of the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP). Please contact ([email protected]) to confirm this.
KPAP raises public awareness regarding the proper treatment of porters on Kilimanjaro and assists climbing companies with implementing procedures that
Ensure the fair and ethical treatment of their porters. KPAP audits our Climb to ensure crewmembers are provided proper salaries, tips, procedure, food, equipment and sleeping conditions.
