Transcript

  • 1. Climb Kilimanjaro With Tusker Trail Tusker Trail is a premier adventure travel company that has l guided Kilimanjaro climbs since 1977. With a focus on climbing safety, unmatched logistics, and awesome cuisine, created by the Culinary Institute of America, Tusker Trail is a true veteran in the industry. Tusker offers adventurers an unparalleled Kilimanjaro climbing experience.
  • 2. About Eddie Frank Founder and Owner of Tusker Trail, Eddie Frank, has been leading Kilimanjaro climbs for more than 37 years. Born and raised in Africa, Eddie’s vision for the company took root during his early teens when he dreamed of creating a world-class Kilimanjaro climbing company. Now, after having completed 48 climbs Eddie Frank has secured Tusker Trail’s reputation as the top climbing outfitter on Kilimanjaro. Eddie consults regularly with the US Army Special Forces using his knowledge of high altitude strategies and techniques.
  • 3. Expert Guides Tusker Trail’s superb guides are highly skilled, medically-trained mountain guides who are the envy of every company on Kilimanjaro. Tusker Trail’s world-renowned High Altitude First Responder medical course prepares it’s expert guiding team for any high altitude medical scenario that can take place in Kilimanjaro’s harsh environment. The Tusker guides’ leadership and continually renewed medical skills put them in a league of their own. Their high altitude expertise and climbing knowledge, along with their finely tuned leadership skills instill confidence and offers peace of mind to climbers who dream of summiting Kilimanjaro.
  • 4. Safety Tusker Trail’s primary concern on their Kilimanjaro climbs is safety. Tusker’s professional, medically-trained mountain guides monitor climbers every step of the way and are considered the finest on the mountain. Because of Kilimanjaro’s extreme environment, accidents and fatalities are a serious concern. While no one can completely guarantee a climber’s safety, Tusker Trail’s leaders are fully prepared for high altitude medical challenges, including expert evacuation. They are meticulously trained to save lives during high altitude emergencies. Tusker Trail’s 50- hour intensive High Altitude First Responder medical training course is not offered by any other company on Mount Kilimanjaro, and climbers can be rest assured that Tusker Trail’s guides have received the most comprehensive medical training in the business. Tusker Trail’s Kilimanjaro summit rate is 99%---more than double the average on the mountain.
  • 5. ‘Elevated’ Cuisine The most pleasantly surprising highlight of the Kilimanjaro climbing experience with Tusker Trail is quite possibly the cuisine. For a five-year period, Tusker Trail has engaged the Culinary Institute of America to train their Kilimanjaro chefs. The Culinary Institute of America has also been enlisted to design Tusker’s extraordinary ‘mountain menus’. Working closely with Chef David Kamen, professor of culinary arts, and Chef James Hanyzeski CMC, Tusker Trail owners Eddie and Amy Frank have brought a whole new meaning to the term "elevated cuisine." While climbing Kilimanjaro, adventurers will enjoy sumptuous, carefully prepared meals made with fresh meat, fruits, and vegetables. Guests dine in comfort in roomy all-weather dining tents equipped with tables, folding chairs, and gas lamps for warmth and lighting.

Tusker Trail offers discounts and makes donations to bona fide charities.
  • 8. Trip Extensions After completing their Kilimanjaro climb, guests can choose to add an optional Tanzania wildlife safari on to their trip which can be a spectacular way to celebrate the achievement of summiting Mount Kilimanjaro.
