Big Expeditions is a socially responsible company.We are a qualified partner company with the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP), a nonprofit porter welfare organization (www.kiliporters.org). We voluntarily participate with, and are evaluated by, KPAP’s monitoring activities every climbing season. Our climb price reflects our providing proper working conditions for our porters. Lower climb prices may be possible because an operator is not adhering to fair and ethical standards. Please contact KPAP at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm our Partner status.
