Kilimanjaro Chief guide -Thomas Mlanzi

     My name is Thomas Mlanzi, and I am the Kilimanjaro chief guide as well as the Managing Director and founder of Kilinge Adventures.

I was born in Iringa, Tanzania’s southern part region, in villages where people live in poverty and the majority of them do not attend school. Actually, the idea for this company came after I graduated from university, where my beloved parents and other relatives played a significant role in supporting my education, but I was unable to repay them. Due to a lack of job opportunities, I felt compelled to do something that would benefit my family and contribute to society, as there were many young people in need of decent jobs to support their families.

I started as a porter, then went through tour guide certification and license training to become a professional Kilimanjaro Chief guide tour. Kilinge Adventures was founded after I gained experience as a Kilimanjaro Chief guide.

When you book with Kilinge Adventures either join group tour or private tour, you are helping many young people who are in difficult situations; your assistance and support are what make a difference in the community.
