Kefas Lashinge Mollel | Chief Guide
Travel Guides
Written by MiJobz 740747     August 08, 2013    
Kefas was the guide for 5 of us when we did our 7-day climb with TK in late September 2015. He and his team were very professional and helpful, in guiding us and providing all necessary support; we were taken good care and adjusted very well in the mountains to ensure a successful climb. Mutual trust between guides and climbers is vital and needless to say, the importance to keep the climbers informed and motivated. Kefas did fantastic job communicating with us what were going to happen and what should be expected every day. Apart from this, he kept on encouraging us to push our limit. I had some ankle injury right before the climb so Kefas and his team took special care of that, checking on my situation regularly, supplying hot water every night for pain relief and treatment, and suggesting alternatives for summiting day plan (eventually we did not take the alternative plan but Kefas respected our decision and supported it in all his capacity). Summiting Kili would not have been possible, without the support from Kefas and his team. We totally enjoyed our time in the mountains with Kefas and his team and would definitely recommend them to anyone considering climbing Kili.
