Go behind the scenes for an exciting look into the little-known world of the Tanzanian guides, mountain chefs and porters on Kilimanjaro.
Tales about Kilimanjaro have always focused on the foreigners who fly in to bag the peak. And history records the first person to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro was German national, Hans Meyer. But that history is wrong. It was his Tanzanian guide, Yohani Lauwo, who grew up on the slopes of the mountain.
Kilimanjaro is a harsh and brutal place, and without the Kings, no one summit, or even attempts to climb it. Rich or poor, young or old, no one hits that peak without the Kings’ leadership and skill.
Watch The Kings of Kilimanjaro here and be inspired by the indomitable spirit of the Tanzanian guides, mountain chefs and porters who call Kilimanjaro home.
