About Team Toubkal

Team Toubkal began in 2023 as a sister company of Team Kilimanjaro. Team Kilimanjaro has assisted more than 10,000 trekkers over 13 years to the summit of Kilimanjaro. Our founder John, decided to bring his expertise to Toubkal after hearing from a past TK climber that they were not able to summit due to poor acclimatisation. 

We often get asked by past climbers β€˜What's next?’ Or by climbers wanting to prepare for their Kilimanjaro climb β€˜what can they do now to prepare?’ Now we have options for our climbers whilst providing them the best service available. 

John, Founder

John has led various expeditions throughout the world. Complementary to his role with TK he served as a mountain safety consultant to Kilimanjaro National Park and was responsible for determining the cause of the tragic accident of 4th January 2006 which resulted in the Western Breach assault route being closed.

He holds the verified British speed record for Kilimanjaro, has created a completely new route on the north side of Kilimanjaro that ascends the Credner Glacier and traverses the Crater, and has advised the National Parks authorities on environmental impact reduction.

More about John πŸ‘‰ 

From before his teens John's main interest has always been adventurous expeditions. At the age of 12, he eventually concluded a long campaign to persuade his mother to allow him to cycle the 30km round trip each day to school and back. After school John joined the British Army but wasn't particularly convinced by the merits of Brits killing Serbs, so left by the age of 21 and has committed himself to diverse expeditions ever since.

Team Kilimanjaro's relationship with Kilimanjaro began in March 2000 when our founder speed-climbed Kilimanjaro on his first expedition to the mountain. TK began offering climbs in June 2004 and by 2019 had assisted their 10,000th trekker to Kilimanjaro's summit.

While we didn't really know it at the time, Team Mount Everest was conceived in May 2002, when John and Rebecca Rees-Evans, a newly married husband and wife team, went on a kind of delayed honeymoon to Mount Everest.
