Everlasting Tanzania was created, built and to this day still operated entirely by local Tanzanian Kilimanjaro and professional safari guides. In 2007, Everlasting Tanzania Travels emerged from a group of Tanzanian mountain and safari guides, pooling their years of experience as guides and porters, chiefly to empower the local community by providing opportunities for ourselves and others.
In partnership with Mom2Mom Africa, we have granted education scholarship to more than 45 children, mostly unprivileged girls.
Through Global Forces we have supplied school supplies and solar lanterns to students suffering from energy poverty.
We have also donated over 600 seedlings to local schools to improve the badly deforested local environment.
Mountain Staff: Fair Compensation & Good Working Conditions
Everlasting Tanzania Travels actively promotes fair compensation and good working conditions for mountain staff. We ensure our clients are well-served by a network of competent, trained and experienced guides and porters who are fairly paid and properly equipped.
We ensure that our staff member have the necessary gear and waterproof clothing to work comfortably and effectively.
We ensure that our staff eat sufficiently and well and have access to clean water and medical attention.
We ensure that our porters do not carry more than the recommended weight set by the Mount Kilimanjaro National Park authorities.
We ensure that staff tips are distributed fairly to the mountain guides, porters & cooks.
We pay above the recommended porter’s daily wages set by Mount Kilimanjaro National Park and although we may not pay the highest wages, we are proud to say our team is the happiest on the mountain.
Everlasting Tanzania Travels complies with all Kilimanjaro national parks environmental regulations. All of our trash is hauled out and measured at the exit gate, we supply gas stoves instead of firewood and charcoal and we use environmental friendly LED solar light in our mess tents. We always strive to minimize our impact on the fragile mountain ecosystem since our livelihood is reliant on the healthy state of environment. We are devoted to ensure Kilimanjaro’s pristine environment stays clean for others to enjoy.
