Why hire a personal porter?
Hiring a personal porter may not be something you’ve given much thought to, but we’ve found it is something our guests have absolutely loved and appreciated. Personal porters share the weight of your equipment, plus, so much more:
They carry your day pack!
Your day pack can weigh between 10-20 lbs, so this is quite literally a weight off your back, allowing you to focus on putting one foot in front of the other and making it to the roof of Africa.
They offer support!
Everyone can use some encouragement during physical challenges. Porters have trekked these trails countless times and know when to give you an added bit of support to help you stay in the game. It is like having your own personal cheerleader as you make your way up the mountain.
They enrich your experience!
Our guests have loved learning about Tanzanian culture on the mountain from their personal porters. It’s a unique and wonderful bonding experience.
