Why Travel to Tanzania with Impatiens Tours

Porter Welfare

Porters will also go on the trip to carry your luggage, food, and other equipment. You will only have to carry a day pack with your daily essentials. We use a high ratio of guides and porters to clients. We take porter welfare very seriously and do our best to ensure our staff is treated well. As a partner company of the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP), we comply with all established guidelines on porter wages and welfare. We supply our porters with the proper food and shelter, and restrict porter loads to reasonable weight limits.

Our Groups are limited to 15-45 people
(the typical group size is 5 people). We will combine groups up to this limit if they are starting the same route on the same day. However, we can also arrange for private groups at no extra cost. We will try to add single travelers to a group if at all possible but will also do groups with just one climber. We can also accommodate large groups of any size.

Kilimanjaro guides
Our local guides are licensed trained, friendly, and with years of experience. They have all been certified by the Kilimanjaro National Park. They start out as porters and work their way up to assistant guide. When they are ready (after about 2-4 years), they go through the national park certification process. Our expert guides were hand selected to work for us. We have the best local guides who have received extensive training in first aid and mountain rescue. With unrivaled experience and competence, they are among the most talented and respected professionals in the industry. Our guides have over 70 successful summits.

Quality Camping Gear
We only use high quality camping equipment to keep climbers as comfortable as possible while outdoors. Our Mountain Hardwear tents are warm, waterproof, and roomy – and perfectly suited for the rigors of Kilimanjaro. We provide thick foam sleeping pads for all clients. Mountain Hardwear Lamina sleeping bags, rated to -30F/-30C, are available for rental.

Delicious Meals
All food and drink is provided on the mountain. Our mountain chefs prepare delicious meals with fresh, local ingredients. These meals are nutritious and calorie dense, specifically designed to sustain the energy of climbers. An ample amount of clean water is provided so climbers stay well hydrated throughout the trek. We also cater to all special dietary requirements.

Group and Private Climbs
For those who are traveling alone or simply want the company of others, we have scheduled group climbs on our favorite routes. These climbs avoid the rainy seasons, include acclimatization days, and are limited to only 12 climbers. We can also organize private climbs on any route, for any size party, on any dates

Safety
This is our number one priority, while on a tour trekking Kilimanjaro or Safari. We have emergency evacuation plans for any traveler who needs medical attention; we have located the nearest clinics to each of the National Parks. Also we provide flying evacuation services if required as we have partnered with different flying doctors organization services.

Environmental Responsible
Due to the ever-growing tourism industry, we require our crew to follow the principle of “leave no trace.” We provide our staff with rewards when they collect trash on Kilimanjaro. We have a program that every client who books with us we plant a tree on their behalf.
