Now he is head crew to all our porters brothers to all our climbing expeditions on Kilimanjaro.
The Safari Guide
Mosse is a fantastic and very talented man as he met many of our safari guests. Itʼs as if he has a five sense for the animals. So he can sit very quietly behind the wheel to observe something and then suddenly starts with the car.
Before you know it, you are standing by masses of wildebeest crossing the river exactly at that location. How could Moses know? Moses has been working for years even before we found amaKilimanjaro as a safari guide. He has a passion for nature that he can spend months in.
The Mountain Guide
On the long hikes climbing Kili, he will happily share his expert knowledge and entertaining anecdotes to lighten your stride. Starting out as porter and now amaKilimanjaro head guide.
Leone knew right away he wanted to climb the career ladder and become a full route guide. He remembers how strenuous and challenging he experienced his first climb up Kili many years ago.
Today, he is an excellent mountaineer, but hasnʼt forgotten the challenges a mountain-novice may encounter. You can expect empathy and encouragement from a man who knows what it feels like to conquer the highest mountain in Africa.
Leon has climbed Mt Kilimanjaro more than 300 times and is hopeful to meet with him soon.
Emanuel he always help with Ignas to make all fresh meals from Vegan, vegetarians, and all other options on making sure our clients are happy and healthier while at the farm or on the Climbing mountains.
