Optional Live tracking
Kilimanjaro has a complete GSM mobile phone coverage. Taking advantage of this, all athletes are equipped with a live tracker which broadcasts their precise position to a website every 3 seconds. The team can follow the athletes live. Most importantly, if someone is stationary for more than 15 minutes we will automatically begin a rescue action.
Best of all, every athlete is displayed as a point on an interactive map that fans, friends, and family can follow live – seeing where their hero is right now. This website can be embedded as an iframe on any website.
Athletes in serious trouble can also use the SOS emergency button on the tracking unit. This will trigger an immediate rescue.
