Very few companies run their own climbs on Kilimajaro. This is important in order to control the quality and safety of your climb. Most companies subcontract to a local operator, and then pass on their markup to you. By subcontracting your climb, these companies sacrifice control of the safety and standards of your climb. Tusker Trail runs its own climbs from start to finish, and does not subcontract.
