~We couldn't be more impressed with Tusker. First of all, They did an excellent job preparing us for the trip providing extensive info, answering all our questions and giving recommendations for equipment, training, medicine, etc. If anything, we felt over-prepared on the climb."

Why Tusker Trail

BORN OUT OF ADVENTURE

Tusker Trail is no ordinary global adventure company.  We were founded on the spirit of adventure that could only come from a wild eyed 23 year old Eddie Frank who, 44 years ago, started chasing adventure in his beat-up old Landrover, leading his first group of intrepid travelers across Africa.   

Eddie Frank "discovered" Kilimanjaro on his first trans-Africa expedition.  Since that day Tusker's founding guide Eddie Frank has climbed Kilimanjaro 44 times and crossed the Sahara Desert 33 times.  It's on these journeys through Africa Eddie found himself exhilarated by a particular type of adventure - trekking.   

Tusker Trail was created to share that passion with you.

UNMATCHED EXPERIENCE

Founding Guide, Eddie Frank

Eddie Frank has dined with dictators, hunted with the Pygmies, languished in African jails, and survived a handful of military coups. No one has experienced the thrill of Adventure like Eddie Frank.  Inspired by his own life adventures Eddie has spent the last 44 years crafting each and every one of Tusker's adventures so that they may bring that same thrill he experienced on his first time.  Tusker Trail's rock-solid reputation through these many years has been built around those adventures.

Founding Guide, Amy Frank

Amy Frank has been climbing mountains for well over 25 years. She has led multiple Kilimanjaro climbs, including our global treks in Bhutan, Nepal and Mongolia.  Amy is a co-instructor of Tusker's HIGH ALTITUDE FIRST RESPONDER medical course for Tusker guides. She is instrumental in shaping Tusker's training syllabus.

Tusker Trail's Global & U.S. Staff 

Tusker Trail's global & U.S. Staff are experts on all our trips.  Each staff member has been hired for their commitment to the environment, their love of the outdoors, and their efficiency.  Some of our guides have over 20 years with Tusker Trail, having led thousands climbers while racking up hundreds of personal summits. Being a Tusker guide can be a family tradition, passed down to the next generation in the family.
