Tusker spends over 60% of its total revenue in Tanzania. This money contributes immensely to the welfare of the local Kilimanjaro community.
Tusker Trail pays its crew extremely well, and way above the average wage standards. Each year the following crew and staff feed their families from our climbs:
- 2,275 Porters
- 13 Professional Guides
- 5 US office staff
- 18 Moshi Operations crew
These numbers reflect the number of crew directly employed by Tusker. It does not reflect the thousands of family members supported through the hotel and other peripheral services.
