KE Adventure Travel Leaders

KE Leaders and Local Staff

A competent, caring and efficient leadership team is essential for any group of adventure travellers. By definition, this type of travel will involve the unexpected, be it sudden storms, route diversions or transport breakdown. Thousands of satisfied clients can confirm that KE leaders take such situations in their stride, be it as rescuer, nurse, diplomat or mechanic. All of our holidays are accompanied by a professional leader or a local guide selected on the basis of his or her experience and leadership skills. Most of these leaders have worked for KE for many years and many are guides or instructors with an unrivalled knowledge of the areas, cultures and environments in which they work. In addition to having the technical skills to ensure your safety, KE expects its leaders to be active members of the group. A leader should be fun to travel with and ready to share with you their enthusiasm for adventure travel and their knowledge of the area. Alongside the group leader, there will be a local support crew, which could be just a driver, or a complete team of guides, drivers, porters, mule-herders and cooks. The hard work of our support crews, along with the fascinating insight they can offer into their own culture, is integral to providing you with the very best holiday experience.

 


The KE Leader of the Year 2013 is ... Mustapha Imharken!

Mustpaha ImharkenWe were overwhelmed with your votes for the KE Leader of the Year Awards for 2013. We are delighted to announce the winner of the 2013 Leader of the Year Awards is Mustapha Imharken!

An exceptional leader in every way he is great with all clients and pays particular attention to children's needs on family trips. You voted for him in droves and his feedback was excellent, especially highlighting his in-depth knowledge and extreme passion for Morocco which he shared with both young and older clients alike. "Mustapha our guide was fabulous in every aspect. He was marvellous with the children and as he is local to the Bougmez valley his pride and enthusiasm for the area was incredibly infectious."

In recognition of Mustapha's high attention to detail, Mustapha has received a Trans Alpine 30 Backpack courtesy of Deuter.

Thank you to everyone that voted and a special big THANK YOU to all the KE Leaders and the work that they put in to help make every KE holiday really special.
