Why Big Expeditions

Until recently Tourism in Tanzania was developed with little regard for the aspirations of the surrounding communities who were excluded from the benefits of Tourism. This led to alienation’s of the neighbors of the Parks and other indirect players of the Industry.

BIG EXPEDITIONS is playing a leading role in reversing this climate of conflict. Around Mount Kilimanjaro area we have recruited and trained Mountain Guides, Chefs and Porters.

We also support Orphans, poor schools and many other such activities in the area bordering Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru and other National Parks In Tanzania.
