Athumani is everything one would seek in a guide up Kilimanjaro plus much more. First and foremost, he is incredibly passionate about all things Kilimanjaro. He was a wealth of knowledge as we completed our climb, never wasting an opportunity to point out certain things on the mountain or give a quick history lesson. His passion is contagious, as both my friend and I found ourselves motivated every day by Athumani.

Athumani was also very well prepared for the trek and at every point along the way the group was well looked after. He regularly checked on our mental and physical state, adapting well when any situation that required flexibility arose. Every meal, which was delicious, Athumani checked on us to make sure we were well nourished and hydrated which was key to our successful summit. He also had plenty of supplies, including painkillers and extra Diamox (in addition to a full first aid kind) in the event any climbers were in need. The team was also very well coordinated, and there was never an issue with regard to getting settled or leaving any camp site.

Aside from the trekking element, Athumani was simply an enjoyable person to be around. He was caring and respectful, eager to learn about the climbers, and he had a great sense of humor. I would recommend climbing with Athumani and his team to anyone who wants to have an unforgettable experience on Kilimanjaro.

8 Day TK Lemosho Route with Athumani

Athumani is everything one would seek in a guide up Kilimanjaro plus much more. First and foremost, he is incredibly passionate about all things Kilimanjaro.
