Guides & Porters
The importance of having competent, high quality
guides and porters cannot be overstated when it
comes to climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
Braventure Africa uses local guides, all of whom
have received extensive training in first aid,
mountain rescue, flora and fauna, and history.
All are registered with Kilimanjaro National Park (KINAPA).
Our Kilimanjaro guides are very experienced, with
most having climbed more than 105 times! They are
professionals who intimately know the mountain.
You can expect the following from our Kilimanjaro
High Safety Standards - Your guide can identify and
avoid potential hazards such as slippery trails and
loose rocks. Your guide can prevent, recognize and
treat altitude-related illnesses.
Climbs Knowledge - Kilimanjaro trails are clearly
marked, so following a trail should not pose a
problem. But there are more intricate things that
your guide will take into consideration when
deciding when, where, and how to move the party.
These things include weather conditions, trail
density, rest stops, pace, etc.
Mountain Facts - Your guide is knowledgeable about
general mountain facts. He can tell you about the
climate zones, the altitudes of and distances to
campsites, and information about the geology, flora
and fauna. These types of facts increase the
enjoyment during the trek by giving you an idea of
what you are seeing and feeling.
Our Kilimanjaro guides love working with us because
we book small, private parties on the best routes.
