Donations for the Mountain Rescue team

Sep 27, 2018

KWS Mountain Rescue team, Mount KenyaHead Mountain Rescue officer, George Ombuki and Simon Gitau, Assistant Director Mountain Conservation Area, receive 13 ruck-sacks for the mountain rescue team on Mount Kenya, from a generous supporter, facilitated by Tropic Air.

Mount Kenya, with its abundant and rich biodiversity is a massive attraction to visitors and mountaineers.  The team is dedicated to the safety of climbers, and often has to carry out complex rescue operations, with support from Tropic Air’s helicopters.  We have a great relationship with the Kenya Wildlife Service  – both their mountain rescue team and rangers – and have worked side-by-side for countless years.
