Kilimanjaro Climb

Everest Base Camp Trek

KILIMANJARO BACKUP SUPPORT

We have 18 members on our Moshi-based operations crew. Tusker’s Moshi ground operations has been a staple fixture in the community for decades. Moshi is where our local team operates, where we store our rental gear, and where Tusker bases its operations for our climbs and ongoing community support.

The onsite operations manager and crew handle your in-country transport, lodgings, and pre-climb preparation, as well as your pre-climb introduction to your Kilimanjaro guiding team. Our Moshi staff are an invaluable source of information about the region, the town and the local community. If you are looking for handicrafts, tasty food, or the right local markets to explore, they will accompany you to ensure you have a safe and enriching experience.

PORTERS AND CAMP SUPPLY

Kilimanjaro’s porters are the unsung heroes of Kilimanjaro. They literally carry climbing companies on their backs. And typical of the Tanzanians, they do it with a smile.

As a 45-year-long fixture in the local Kilimanjaro climbing world, Tusker’s owners/guides Eddie and Amy Frank are passionate about the welfare of Tusker’s porters and their community, and have made it a lifelong focus. In Nepal, we employ a local Sherpa team, along with a Sherpa lead guide and two Kilimanjaro medical guides. Our trusty yaks carry the bulk of your gear. In Mongolia, your crew is comprised of local guides and horsemen, who tend to the camels that carry your entire camp. On our Greenland trek, the equipment is transported by our boat team, leaving you free to trek with just a daypack and your guides.
