As well as your Leader, we'll be supported by local guides and porters. Kilimanjaro National Park regulations require us to be accompanied by a local guide and we'll also hire porters and a cook to carry our communal gear (tents, food etc.) and your personal gear (e.g. sleeping bags, spare footwear) in a duffel bag or rucksack. You'll carry only what you need for each day's trekking in a small rucksack. We'll have a maximum guide-to-client ratio of 1:3. We need to register with the Park Authority before beginning our trek and need to sign in at each camp along the way. All food on the mountain is provided, and we'll have a communal mess tent with dining chairs and table. Sufficient fresh water will be provided daily to ensure you stay hydrated.
