We would like to give a little mention the crew up on the mountain as they are the real engine room of all of our climbs, without these dedicated, hardworking and inspiring individuals we wouldn’t be able to provide such fantastic and inspiring expeditions. To learn more about and to help support the crew, why not take a look at our partner organizations KPAP (Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project) and The Destiny Foundation
