Responsible tourism: Mount Kilimanjaro trekking vacation, Machame route

Environment

On this Kilimanjaro trek we provide our adventurers with local guides, local cooks and local porters that all have expertise in environmental protection. Our guides know the importance of protecting the environment and beauty of Mount Kilimanjaro.

As the vast majority of this tour involves walking, we ensure to protect the vegetation by only using established tracks. We leave what we find, so no taking of plants, rocks, archaeological artefacts, etc. We ensure that our guests dispose of waste in the responsible way by taking anything with them. Ecosystems, especially in Mount Kilimanjaro, are fragile and must be treated with extra care.

Throughout this trip travelers will be staying in a mixture of camps and hostels. We ensure to provide accommodation facilities that are environmental-friendly and that aim to minimise any negative effects on the environment. Some of the hostels used during the Kilimanjaro trekking trip are the Mandara hut, Kibo hut and Horombo hut.

These hostels are built in a way so that the environment is not disrupted. For example, Mandara hut is a village of A-framed huts in a forest clearing on the Marangu route. Each hut features 6-8 sleeping bunks with solar generated lighting with a camp capacity of up to 60 climbers. Water is piped into the camp from springs above and there are flush toilets behind the main hut.

Whilst staying in these hostels and camps, guests are served delicious food and clean water because our local staff only source ingredients locally and we ensure that they provide our tourists with a well balanced diet- this entails a great amount of fresh fruit and the clean water is obtained and filtered from springs available on Mount Kilimanjaro. We ensure water sources are used judiciously and we always avoid polluting it.

Community

We organise all our Mount Kilimanjaro trekking trips from scratch and, as mentioned, all of the trips are guided by local tour guides. These guides are professional and have lots of experience, plus they are registered with the association of tour guides. By using local tour guides we bring additional income to them and to their families. For this trip we use tour guides who are originated from areas surrounding Mount Kilimanjaro. Furthermore, we use accommodation facilities which are locally owned for the purpose of ensuring the income generated benefits local economy at all.

This is a private tour and hence there won’t be any other climbers joining you. Your group will consist of only the people you chose to travel with and your mountain crew. Limiting the group to a certain number of people our tour guides are overwhelmed, allowing them to quickly solve any issues that may arise. Small groups also reduce the impact on the environment.
