One of the most prolific guides, with perhaps the greatest number of summits on record, in 2000 Fred 'Akatingisha' Achedo was nominated 'Guide of the Millennium' by Kilimanjaro National Parks Authority and is probably the best known mountain guide working on Kilimanjaro.

Fred Achedo takes his duties extremely seriously and performs superbly on the mountain. My only significant criticism of him is that perhaps because he takes his duties so seriously and is so keen to please and hates to disappoint, he can at times use some avoidance strategies that compromise his professionalism. That said, he properly belongs close to then top of our ranks, and it has been a pleasure and a privilege working with him for so many years.
