The Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP) is a legally registered non-profit organisation supporting the fair and ethical treatment of Kilimanjaro porters, cooks, and mountain guides. An initiative of the International Mountain Explorers Connection (IMEC), it monitors registered tour operator companies to ensure that they maintain responsible treatment practices while offering educational classes to empower Kilimanjaro mountain crew.


The Kilimanjaro Company is a proud member of KPAP and fully committed to exceeding the expectations outlined by the organisation. We adhere to porter treatment guidelines and encourage our guests to follow KPAP tipping recommendations.


Kilimanjaro porters, cooks, and guides are essential to the success of your expedition, and by booking your Kilimanjaro climb with a KPAP registered company, you can be assured that your mountain crew are well taken care of.


With Kilimanjaro Company, your journey to the Roof of Africa supports local communities in Tanzania, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
