One of the most respected and experienced local guides on Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. The dedicated Msafiri Munna or 'MC' as he is known to his friends and clients has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro over 200 times over the last 15 years.
He takes enormous pride in his job as a head guide. We find Msafiri a source of inspiration and respect his opinion on all matters related to the majestic mountains of East Africa. Msafiri has experience in Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru, Mount Kenya and Mount Stanley, Africa's most reverred peaks. Having grown up in the shadow of Kilimanjaro in the Marangu area and from a young age he knew the mountain was going to play a deciding factor in his life. Working tirelessly to climb the ranks of guiding, his amazing career started on the mountain back in 1998 as a porter. Being exceptional at his job along with well liked and respected by his peers, he was soon to become an expedition chef before working towards Assistant Guide.
Msafiri is now a full Tour Guide and oversees logistics for expeditions from start to finish, including the running of the impressively large expedition teams (which can sometimes be upwards of 60 people). Msafiri maintains keeping a great sense of humour has allowed him to continue enjoying his work and the challenges faced on the mountain.
