Tusker's Culinary Trained Chefs
In a mountain first, Tusker Trail has engaged the Culinary Institute Of America to train our Kilimanjaro chefs. The Culinary Institute also designs Tusker's extraordinary menus specially engineered to keep you well fed and fueled for long hard days on the trail.
Farm to Table Cuisine
We also work side-by-side with the top chefs at the Institute to create our well planned menus. When designing our menu we focus not only on variety and great taste, but on the demanding nutritional needs of our climbers and crew.
Tusker Trail is an approved Partner company with the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project – KPAP – and the International Mountain Explorers Connection – IMEC – Partner for Responsible Travel Program.
In addition to having established high safety and climbing standards for our crew, we voluntarily participate with KPAP’s monitoring activities and allow KPAP to evaluate the treatment of our porters on all of our climbs.
You can be assured that Tusker Trail maintains the highest health and safety standards for our entire crew.
