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.
