We like to think we are one of the best operators on Kilimanjaro. We have our own full time staff on the ground in Tanzania along with Kilimanjaro’s number 1 mountain guide. Most of our staff on the ground in Tanzania have worked with us for more than 8 years and we pay them a minimum of TZS 20,000 per day.
We have a range of support staff who do additional jobs on the mountain and they get paid more for this. We have private toilet crew, security guards, chefs, kitchen crew, dining servers and we always have 1 to 1 guide to client support on all our summit nights. We also carry bottled oxygen and monitor each client day recording each person’s oxygen saturation and heart rates. This is all done by our professional mountain guides. Read some REVIEWS.
We support our staff going to college
Ian Taylor Trekking have funded college courses for many of our staff. We have put people in chef college, initial guiding courses and paid for key staff to finishing their guiding qualification. We have also brought key staff members to Nepal where some have trekked to Everest Base Camp and our head guide has climbed Island peak and hopes to return to climb Mera peak with a goal of climbing Mount Everest in the near future.

You need climb Kilimanjaro on the best route available
We believe that the Lemosho route over 8 days is the way to go. If you are older or feel you need a little more time. The 9 day Lemosho route climb could be the one for you. We want people to be safe and we also want each person to learn, enjoy and get the most of their Kilimanjaro experience. We have amazing staff so it is worth the time to get to know them and get the real Kilimanjaro experience from passionate locals. Our staff are like family and you will start as friends and leave as part of a larger Tanzanian family.
You need fresh food, spacious tents and quality support
Last but not least we have gone into great detail in providing each person with quality food and spacious tents. We use Trango 4 mountain Hard ware tents. We also use a Mountain Hard ware Dome tent with nice comfortable seating. You will spend a lot time in our tents so we want to make sure you are as comfortable as possible. We can guarantee you will walk away from our Kilimanjaro climb after having one of the greatest mountain experiences of your life on Kilimanjaro.
