Your Safety is our First priority. Before you even arrive on the mountain this begins with planning routes that ensure good acclimatization, we recruit and train the very best guides and we use world class equipment.
Once you are on the mountain we do everything possible to ensure you remain healthy. We monitor your health closely to spot the early warning signs of problems.

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If AMS is not treated it can lead to more serious conditions like High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and/or High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE) each year a very small number of climbers die on Kilimanjaro. These deaths could be avoided if all licensed first aid guides who had high altitude medical training and carried oxygen and a portable hyperbaric bag.

This equipment includes oxygen tanks, and a pressure bag, which are only used in the most life threatening altitude sickness cases.

Our trips have been arranged to use daily climbing schedules and sleep to enhance your body’s acclimatization.

Our meals emphasize carbohydrates and other foods that increase the generation of heat and energy as we move to higher altitudes.

Moreover, we move slowly. With light exercises and celebrations at every camp to make your trip in the mountains enjoyable.
