Porters do more than carry equipment. They lift our spirits and help us reach new heights. We’re dedicating this week to them and the incredible work they do.

Stories from our guests

Porters carry food, equipment and gear the crew needs to summit Kilimanjaro. Their strength and support inspire many; read the special stories and memories shared by Thomson guests below.
