Responsible tourism: Family Kilimanjaro trek in Tanzania

Environment

Our tours in Tanzania are run in conjunction with a locally owned and based partner who shares our environmental goals and commitment to operate in a responsible manner. There are many fragile eco-systems in Tanzania and our safari guides and drivers provide advice on how to behave to ensure that any negative impact is prevented and to uphold these values on ecologically sustainable treks and safaris.

For example, on our Kilimanjaro treks we are committed to offering “green” treks and “leave no trace” principles of mountain ethics and removing all our waste from campsites, including human waste from higher campsites where waste does not break down.

Here are our other commitments in that area:
No campfires
All human waste is removed using Clean Mountain Cans
Utilise environmentally friendly Restop Urine Bags along the trek for responsible disposal in general waste containers
Rechargeable batteries for all lighting and communication devices
Clean all mountain and safari camps and take out more than we produce
Employing local tribesman and woman indigenous to Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Meru
Purchase local sustainably grown vegetables and fruits from farmers on the mountain slopes

Our UK office is run as environmentally as possible. The majority of our staff either walk or cycle to work and we operate a primarily paper free environment. We do not produce brochures (which often leads to a lot of waste) but market our tours exclusively on the internet.

Community

Our local partner has a strong commitment to sharing expertise with Tanzania's indigenous population through access to employment, training, quality living wage and improved living conditions. Labour and consumables are all sourced locally in order to ensure a sustainable and localized business.

We update equipment regularly to maintain the highest standards of customer standards and care, offer a quality menu and ensure that we meet the highest safety standards with no compromise on client or crew safety.

On our Kilimanjaro we ensure that all of our team members are treated fairly with respect and dignity, well clothed, equipped and paid a decent living wage that surpasses the majority of companies offering treks on Kilimanjaro. Guides and porters want to work with our local partner for these reasons and their excitement, enthusiasm and commitment to the company flow into the way they perform their duties, interact with customers and portray a quality, positive company image.
