My life as a Kilimanjaro porter, guide and now a class “A” tour operator.
After working as a porter for many years, George Mtaki decided to make it his priority to establish a company that would treat porters fairly and respectfully.
A background on porter’s rights and what we are doing to improve the situations. Over the course of his career as a porter and guide, George’s work has been featured in a number of leading guide books and travel publications on Kilimanjaro, environmental sustainability and Tanzania.
Tom Naegels a Belgium international Journalist on Kilimanjaro climb, wrote about Mount Kilimanjaro Porters situation, where George Mtaki was a freelance porter waiting to be hired by guides on entrance at Kilimanjaro Machame gates .
We are fully licensed local Tanzanian tour company that provides great service with value, well qualified, registered and licensed tour operator by Tanzania Government Ministry of Tourism and Natural Resource Class “A” Government Number 103238 in Tanzania with Ministry of Tourism and Natural resources holding Government Class “A” tour operator and recognize by Tanzania tourist Board TTB as well on Kilimanjaro Association of Tour Operator KIATO.
We have expertise in Kilimanjaro treks, Zanzibar, and Northern Tanzania safari on Serengeti migration safaris. Our safaris “are not simply for tours” but odysseys of spirit, mind and body.
We strive to create a company that is reputable for all mount Kilimanjaro porters and guides, on all climbing routes that allows Kilimanjaro guides and porters to meet to discuss issues concerning Kilimanjaro climbs, share experiences, teach and learn the importance of one another, while promoting the responsible connection between travelers and the people who live on the slope of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
With safety measures, Kilimanjaro Brother’s delivers the highest quality safety precautions on Kilimanjaro climbing while you enjoy your adventure in Tanzania.
As a former porter who has a longer experience on tourism, with this in mind we had to establish the demonstration company “ Kilimanjaro brothers” that will treat well our porters and guides, better care for our clients. We know how hard porters work to make your trips safe and enjoyable. With this in mind, we have made Kilimanjaro Brothers’ into a demonstration company, which takes care of its crew and allows other companies to learn best practices.
Rather than depending on donation we have registered company class A, where any travel agent or clients can book directly to us. When you travel with us you directly support us. Travel now with confidence with Kilimanjaro Brothers on your favorite routes.
We have wealth experienced guides with excellent understanding wildlife and migration ecosystem. We choose the right camps and lodges at right time of the year and you get the best experience possible.
Owner with a true heart of gold!!!
I can honestly say I never had such an experience with a operator such as George’s company. He and his crew truly care about the client as a “person” not just a customer.
