My Name is Joseph along with Roger Crawford (Australian/Tanzania residents) are the founding Directors of Trekili Eco Expeditions (Trekili). Our ethically, socially and environmentally based Mt Kilimanjaro/Mt Meru trekking and Serengeti Safari Company is locally based in Arusha, Tanzania, East Africa.
Our equipment is brand new and of the highest quality. We maintain the highest standards in service delivery and our strategic partnership with Global Rescue and AMREF (Flying Doctors) ensures that client’s safety needs are foremost. We hold membership of the Tanzanian Association of Tour Operators (TATO) and Leave No Trace, whose principles we apply to all our operations.
We pay our team members a decent living wage, update equipment regularly to maintain the highest standards of customer standards and care, offer a quality menu and ensure that we meet the highest safety standards with no compromise on client or crew safety. Please note, our mid-range service is comparable or better than other provider’s luxury service inclusions. Our eco philosophy ensures we use solar, rechargeable lighting and we use private tented toilets inclusive of the Thetford Porta Potti, thus sparing clients the indignity of using the long drop toilets. Using this system allows us to utilise Clean Can Technology to remove all human waste of the mountain.
We use only the best quality mountaineering tents for the clients, Eureka XT and Marmot Liar 8P for the dining tents. This is complemented by quality luxury chairs and tables. Thermarest sleeping pads provide a quality base for sleeping (with specially designed covers). We have designed a tent specifically for the porters, given they prefer to gather together. We utilize the very best quality USA sourced medical kits, medevac stretchers, oxygen systems and our pressure altitude chambers are manufactured in Australia. Waterproof duffle bags carried by the porters were designed in collaboration with the porters and their association to provide a greater degree of comfort when carried, as they are the backbone of the operations. Further to this, we ensure the clients’ gear arrives at each camp dry without fail.
We offer every route on the mountain, though we prefer to offer the less travelled routes away from the crowds so as to enhance the client’s experience. We want the clients to enjoy the peace and solitude that a limited number are privileged to experience. Our Lemosho route can take clients past Lava Tower, Glacier Camp and up the Western Breach for the most stunning panoramas imaginable. Clients can camp at the Crater, just one hour below the summit and walk to view the crater and amazing glaciers. Only a privileged few have this opportunity.
As our discussions progress, we can negotiate rates and inclusions for you to review. Our mid-range inclusions are at a luxury level offered by some operator’s. Other operators will not include quality inclusions, which equates to increased numbers of porters with associated wages and park fees. When you partner with Trekili you will be dealing direct with the owners of our locally owned and operated company. We do not subcontract our services. We will do everything to ensure that your client’s needs are accommodated. You can be confident that we will overcome any on ground logistics issues that may arise to ensure that there is no reputational damage and clients leave satisfied with their journey of a lifetime.
