It would be a huge understatement to say how professional the service and standard of care from The African Walking Company is and likewise, for the quality of the food they take up the mountain.

Diet on the mountain is carefully controlled and monitored. A high liquid and carbohydrate content is essential, with fresh ingredients wherever possible. Meals are carefully prepared by our teams to be tasty, have a high energy content and be easy to digest at altitude. 


As we mentioned camp service levels are great, notably with the provision of hot water for washing twice per day, morning and afternoon. The kitchen gear is extensive and the food is wonderful as it is plentiful. With cooked breakfast, a much more extensive afternoon 'high tea', fresh produce in the menus, desserts at dinner and treats such as trail snacks and hot chocolate. 

Special diets such as gluten-free, vegetarian and lactose intolerant are possible.





Here is how we typically cater on the mountain:

WATER PURIFICATION

Boiled water is offered each evening for filling water bottles and is readily available at other mealtimes too. 

Chemically purifying is not something we believe to be strictly necessary. The water up on the mountain is not full of amoeba as it is in the Himalaya and boiling is sufficient. However, Some clients prefer to chemically purify the boiled water to be doubly sure, in which case they need to use chlorine rather than iodine but should be aware that this too can cause stomach upsets. Good quality water filters are expensive, but are excellent when used properly and are preferable to chemical purification if the trekker considers that a secondary level of protection is necessary.
