Video: The Female Porters of Mt. Kilimanjaro

Climbing the highest mountain in Africa has become quite a bucket-list item for many adventure travelers, with thousands flocking to Kilimanjaro each year to scale its loft heights. If you’ve ever made the trek for yourself, you know that the porters play a vital role in the success of the trekkers, helping to carry their gear from one camp to the next and offering plenty of encouragement along the way. Now, there is a growing number of female porters working on the mountain too, bringing even more interesting stories to the rich Kilimanjaro tapestry. This short documentary takes a look at the bold, strong, and inspiring ladies who are charting the way for others to follow.

  1. I’ve been to Kili twice, the summit once. And for me it would not have been possible without the porters. This woman, all women and men porters on Kilimanjaro are serious badass. Thank you for the project and the video.
