The Follow Alice story

The idea for Follow Alice was planted when Reto climbed Kilimanjaro with Chris as his lead guide in 2014. Chris had started as a porter on Kilimanjaro in 1999 and had since worked his way up to become a chief guide. His dream had always been to set up his own Kilimanjaro operation. Reto decided to team up with Chris, Kazi and Chris’s brother Robert and make the dream a reality. Since then, Follow Alice has grown into a global family of local guides and international explorers who all share a passion for travel and adventure.

    Travel with friends

    Follow Alice aims to offer travel experiences that feel like a good friend is taking you on a journey. “Come as a client – leave as a friend” is a favourite saying of ours, coined by our safari guide Kazi in 2015. It has become one of our guiding principles.
