Back from the jungle trek

We are one of the very few employers in Ketambe. For our agency working about 8 guides and 15 porters, all from Ketambe. There is a rotating system, so everyone gets a job in a regular order. The Ketambe community appreciate this approach.

We also care about junior guides. They gain experience as a porter first and get taught by senior guides during the trekking tours.
