Jambo! You would like to get to know us better? Sure! In the following we tell you a bit more about us and our perspectives. If you have any questions regarding trips to Mount Kilimanjaro on top of that, please do not hesitate to contact us!
Jambo! I am Erasto and have been working as a guide since 2008. Before that, I was working as a porter for five years to get to know Kilimanjaro, and to earn some money. Thus, I was able to pay my tuition fees and to go to school and study English and French, and to attend classes to become a tour-guide. For almost one decade now, I have been guiding people to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, for walks in the Kilimanjaro National Park, and on Safaris. I climb Kilimanjaro around 20 to 30 times per year, so in total I have been up the mountain several hundred times already! Even after so many times I still discover new things on the mountain. I think it is great to climb Kilimanjaro as it gives you the possibility to challenge yourself, and test and improve your physical and mental strength. If you want to reach the top of Kilimanjaro, from my point of view you really need to want it, and be prepared to make great discoveries about the mountain and yourself during the climb. Anyone can make it to the top of Kilimanjaro; but you need to come prepared, physically and mentally, and be ready for an adventure!
Jambo! I am Amos, and I have been guiding people up to the top of Kilimanjaro since 2011. Before that, I worked for one year as a porter to better get to know Kilimanjaro, and train climbing the mountain. I also guide travelers up to the top of Mount Meru, which is next to Kilimanjaro in Arusha National Park, and take them on safaris. I do around 20 to 30 climbs per year, and I have climbed Kilimanjaro more than hundred times already. I think it’s great to climb Kilimanjaro because it’s the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Moreover, even though it is almost located on the equator, it still has snow on the top! What you need to successfully climb Kilimanjaro? Positive thinking, of course, and to be mentally and physically well prepared. Even after so many years, I still love climbing Kilimanjaro because of the many different people from all over the world you meet. Kilimanjaro is waiting for you, hakuna matata!
