We have a policy for trek porters which is available to all our clients on booking. Our guides and porters are all paid fair wages. We try to ensure that all guides and porters are provided with appropriate equipment for them to do their job safely and effectively, this includes good food and shelter. Porters have a weight limit of 20kgs and their loads are weighed before the climb. We constantly monitor the enforcement of this policy through client feedback and staff visits.
Flights are automatically carbon offset through The Travel Forest, which plants 10 indigenous trees on your behalf (currently in northern Tanzania). Whilst the primary motivation for planting the trees is to offset carbon emissions, the project also works as a poverty alleviation and environmental improvement scheme.
