Even to some seasoned travelers, names of Kilimanjaro and Serengeti bring glaze over their eyes. The highest freestanding mountain in the world and the greatest concentration of wild life have been featured by renowned National Geographic, PBS and BBC so many times. Coming to Africa is truly a dream come true.
However, this is not your Mediterranean cruise or all inclusive holiday in the Caribbean. Expect your heart to be changed by the people, the land and the largest free-roaming mammals on earth. Prehistoric. Monotonous. Dusty. Miraculous. Peaceful. Strenuous. Exhilarated. Mind-numbing. Exhausted. Beautiful. Surreal. Grateful. These are the words you would come to describe my country at the end of your journey.
Many guide books say Kilimanjaro is the only summit in the world that can be reached by a regular tourist. But it is not a walk in the park! As we traverse through rainforests, short bushes, alpine deserts until we reach above the clouds, your emotions will run high and low with decreasing oxygen levels and extreme physical exhaustion. In a short six or eight days. Yes, very dramatic!
You will be challenged. And rewarded with the most spectacular sunrise with a sea of clouds and sparkling glacier beneath you. Many people come here underestimated how challenging it would be to reach the summit. This is why I’m here to give you the guidance, to keep you safe and most importantly to experience the wonder of Kilimanjaro! And Tanzania!
I have been a certified professional guide on Kilimanjaro for over five years. I am the only local female guide in Moshi Tanzania. I love nature, photography and want to share this immensely beautiful land with you. Before I became a guide, I worked my way through the ranks as all African guides should have, as a porter. At the time of writing this, I have successfully taken individuals and charity groups to Kilimanjaro summit 79 times! And I keep counting! Over the years, I have guided hundreds of clients to the summit, from as young as 10 years to wounded warriors who have different level of disabilities.
Check out the IMAX videos. Climbing Kilimanjaro is beautifully made from the perspective of a local guide. I hope some day I will be featured in there. lol. I love making new friends. Be friend with me on Facebook to see more pictures of my hikes. If you don’t want to travel alone, join our Meet Up group and travel together with other like-minded people. I’m on Skype too. If I’m not on the mountain, let’s chat. I can't wait to make your adventure in my country a life-changing journey!
