About Afrokili

Afrokili expedition is company organized and were started by the group of guides who were working on Kilimanjaro as park rangers then became guides, we have been working as guides for almost 5years before we were interested in running our own company from gaining experience from the companies that we have been working with. As part of the improvement of our services we decided to organize our self and train in First Aid course as the first priority was the safety of our clients.

How we began

10 years in the making Afrokili was created through the combined experience and vision of over 20 dedicated Kilimanjaro and trekking specialists from senior guides to porters Before actually starting as company, we were working as park rangers on Kilimanjaro as national park team and had some porters working as cleaning crew then decided to have it guides after being trained for guiding and improving ourselves as qualified guides. Most of the Afrokili team have been working together since 2004 shaping the way we do business and that makes for a very dedicated and close nit team. It is that team is Afrokili Members start at the bottom and work up – after all if you have been a porter as a guide you can properly empathies with their position and earn their respect.
