Kilimanjaro Porters

Kilimanjaro Porters


Kilimanjaro Porters and Guides have the major role to make your Kilimanjaro summit successful.Kilimanjaro Porters are the real heroes who would be able to help you get to the summit successfully. The porters carry the gear of climbers and make it easy for them to climb Kilimanjaro. Sometimes the porters work in Kilimanjaro Rescue team in case of any mis-happening.

The porters range from 18 years of age to 40 years of age and Kilimanjaro Porters are the hardest working mountain Kilimanjaro Crew. Porters are not usually employed permanently. Some of themBest Kilimanjaro Tour Operator have a team of porters that they use on their climbing. However, most of the porters freelance.

The porters walk to the national park gate every day and here is where many budget operators pick up the porters.The average ratio of porters per climber is 2-3 porters. The general rule of Kilimanjaro Porters is; larger number of trekkers, the less porter per person is required. If you take Marangu route you will not require more porters and you can get away with about two per trekker and less if the group is large because the Marangu Route has huts and not tents.
