Community based tourism

Kilimanjaro safaris has made efforts to serve the local people and share the benefits of tourism. The tourism industry is a major foreign earner and the local people must also get the direct benefits of international travellers. We have designed our programmes in a way the you will interact with the local people in their original homesteads and share how they live. Travel has both negative and positive impact on the indigenous people. We strive to promote responsible travel arrangements to the locals.

The locals likes to welcome the visitors in their homes where they share their daily activities and share the evening narratives like in the old days. This integrates the visitors into the community and they learn a lot of aspects of the locals. They share the same activities like looking after cows, teaming up in the shamba activities for cultivation, harvesting maize or beans, and firewood for making fire.The local families has benefits derived directly from the tourism.
