    • Kilimanjaro National Park Fees: About 200 USD per climber
    • Staff Wages: About 150 USD per climber per day
    • Food and Water: About 150 USD per climber per day
    • Provided Gear: Tents, dining tent, tables, chairs, and maybe even a toilet tent

Meet Your Kilimanjaro Guides

As you lace up your boots and adjust your backpack, you're about to step into a world that's both thrilling and challenging – the realm of Mount Kilimanjaro. But you won't be going it alone. Waiting to meet you are the Kilimanjaro guides, a group of seasoned individuals who know this mountain like the back of their hands. These guides aren't just experts – they're your partners in this adventure. They'll greet you with warm smiles and firm handshakes, putting you at ease as they share their local knowledge and stories. Their faces reflect the years spent on these slopes, the sun and wind etched into every line.

They'll introduce you to the terrain, adjusting their pace to match yours, and pointing out spots of interest along the way. As you trudge through the diverse landscapes – from dense forests to rocky trails – their presence will be a reassurance that you're in capable hands. But it's not all business. These guides, with their quick wit and easy laughter, infuse the journey with a sense of camaraderie. They'll tell you about their families, the communities they come from, and the cultural tapestry that makes up the region. And you? They'll be just as eager to hear about your world.


As the altitude increases and the air thins, their experience becomes invaluable. They'll advise you on pacing, hydration, and dealing with any altitude-related challenges. They'll be your eyes on the lookout for any signs of discomfort among the group, ready to offer a helping hand or a word of encouragement. But perhaps most importantly, these guides will be there with you when you finally reach the summit. Their cheers will join yours as you take in the panoramic view that stretches as far as the eye can see. And as you begin the descent, tired but triumphant, you'll realize that these guides have not only led you up a mountain but have shared with you a piece of their world. has worked with the same guides for over five years now. They all work together with our colleague in Moshi who is way too busy to climb Kilimanjaro himself. His name is Noel Ernest. He is your guy from the moment you land at Kilimanjaro International Airport. He has been organizing Kilimanjaro expeditions and safaris for years and knows the area like the back of his hand.

He wouldn’t be able to do it without a massive team of guides and porters. Although he has a pool of about 25 guides, there are a few he uses most. Their names? Meet some of the best Kilimanjaro guides:

Erick Nyarianga

Erick has been a guide since 2012. He has climbed Kilimanjaro more than 180 times and can walk every route with eyes closed. He calls Kilimanjaro his office. Not every corner of the office is the same for Erick. Baranco Camp is his favourite camp as it is an extremely vital stop for acclimatization. Erick has two favourite routes: Machame and Lemosho Route. Machame because of great acclimatization and Lemosho because of the possibilities for spotting some wildlife. Erick joined Sierd and Rintsje on their 2022 Kilimanjaro expedition.

Brighton Matongo

Brighton Matongo

You can hear Brighton from afar as he will shout Team Simba (Team Lion in Swahili). If you have watched the Kilimanjaro Movie, you will see that Brighton is full of energy. His favourite camp is Barafu Camp. Due to its favorable weather conditions, you'll have the pleasure of experiencing clear skies from the second day onward. This offers you the opportunity to bask in the stunning vistas of not only Kibo Peak, but also the distinguished Cathedral Peak – one of the renowned trio of Sisters Peaks of Kilimanjaro – all against the backdrop of the expansive Shira Plateau. Like Erick, Brighton has been a guide since 2012. Team Simba!

Ombeni Wilbard

Although he can’t remember the exact number, Ombeni has climbed Kilimanjaro at least 80 times. At least once a month but probably more as he has been a qualified Kilimanjaro guide since 2015. We sometimes get the question if you can climb Kilimanjaro without a guide. Why would you want to? You wouldn’t meet the gentle soul that is Mr Wilbard. You’ll probably meet him when you do the Machame Route because that is his absolute favourite for climbing Kilimanjaro. Make sure to spend some downtime with Ombeni and the porters when you're in Machame Camp, Barranco Camp or one of the others.

Benedict Mpinge

Benedict Mpinge

Ben’s favourite route is the route you choose. For Ben, it’s all part of the mountain. He has no idea how many times he has climbed the mountain: “A lot. And every camp on the mountain is my favourite because I love my job. On the mountain, I find my freedom.” Of all of Team Kili, Benedict is most active on Instagram, where he tries to stay in touch with everyone who has climbed to Uhuru Peak with him before.
