Looking after our porters and crew

When you book with Kandoo you know that not only are you having a great time but also that all your guides and support team are well paid, well cared for and well respected.

A key part of our approach to business is that we care for our local teams. .

Kandoo Adventures are  partner of the International Mountain Explorers Connection (IMEC). This is  a not-for-profit organisation that focuses on improving the working conditions of porters on Kilimanjaro and in Nepal. IMEC was founded in 1996 to promote responsible and sustainable tourism.

Through its Porter Assistance Project, IMEC is focusing its efforts on improving the working conditions for porters on Kilimanjaro and in Nepal. IMEC actively follow the WTO Sustainable Tourism Eliminating Poverty (STEP) program to promote responsible, sustainable tourism. This ensures the benefits from tourism “trickle down” to all members of the local population. Before you go on your adventures take a look though their website to see how you can help.

Along with IMEC, Kandoo are also members of the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP) and the Nepal Mountaineering Association.
