Crew Summits Africa

Summits Africa always aims to be a leader in taking care of our crews for any trip we run. Learn more about our teams below or see more info on our guides or management team.

The porters

Working on Kilimanjaro, Mt Meru and with a separate team on Mt Kenya, this is the engine of the team that makes sure that you are never without a helping hand - from carrying bags to doing the washing up, this team never stops! It's hard to become a porter for Summits, every crew member has to be recommended, interviewed and then go on a number of trips before they can join us full time. As a result Summit's has built a very loyal and hard working team who are paid among the very top wages in the industry. Quite a bunch - you'll meet them on trail or setting camp and no doubt many of them will impress you or amuse you at some point!

The Cooks

Our bush chefs work wonders in tough conditions. Whether in the dusty plains of the Serengeti or the summits of Kilimanjaro, Meru or Mt Kenya, these extremely diligent artists work wonders to provide you with fresh and tasty meals for days on end. Possible the least seen and yet hardest working these fine men cook up a storm - often in a storm!

The Camp Crew

Who sets you tent, serves you food, packs you personal bags for the next stage, carries your bags and keep all the porters on their toes? Our camp crews. Most are training to be guides and they are proud to look after you camp. Never be shy to ask these gentlemen for anything as they always work hard to please.
