Emergency Equipment & Safety Protocols
Your safety is our #1 priority. At Mt. Kilimanjaro’s high elevations, there’s no room for carelessness. We provide exactly who and what you need to reach the roof of Africa safely and comfortably:
English-speaking, Wilderness First Responder Guides with 100-200+ personal summits accompany you every step of the way. All Thomson Mountain Guides are seasoned professional climbers who are experts in their field. They carry an arsenal of emergency equipment (the most of any organization in Tanzania): Gamow Bag, Automatic External Defibrillator (AED’s), oxygen, pulse oximeters, stretcher, litter, three types of mobile communication, and more.
Customized mountain gear keeps you safe, warm, and dry throughout the different terrains, temperatures, and altitudes of your climb. Get out of the wind and enjoy all meals in solar-lit dining tents with comfortable chairs. Keep dry in mountaineering-grade sleeping tents with full-ground pads. Stay healthy in our clean and private toilet tents.
