Kilimanjaro Mountain with its three volcanic cones, “Kibo”, “Mawenzi”, and “Shira”, is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa, and rises approximately 4,900 meters (16,100 ft) from its base to 5,895 meters (19,341 ft) above sea level. This Mountain is part of the Kilimanjaro National Park and is a major climbing destination. The Mountain has been the subject of many scientific studies because of its shrinking glaciers and disappearing ice fields
ETHICAL KILIMANJARO CLIMBS
We are doing ethical climbs and responsible Trekking; we believe the tourism industry has an obligation and a great 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 important priorities of Eco-Africa Climbing when we do climb.
Eco-Africa Climbing is the Proud 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 fair and ethical treatment of their porters.
Every of our climb is audited by KPAP to ensure crewmembers are provided proper salaries, tips, food, equipment and sleeping conditions.
