Hikers during the Kilimanjaro ascent

Our team in Tanzania

Our local agency in Tanzania

Established in Moshi over 15 years ago to focus on Kilimanjaro, our local agency in Tanzania is run by Emanuel Nguma and is made up of an office team, expert guides, assistant guides, porters and cooks. They're all on hand to look after you every step of the way. We have successfully and safely placed thousands of our guests on the summit of Kilimanjaro over the years and we are proud of the exceptional service that we provide on the mountain.

Kandoo is a proud member of the Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP), which works to ensure that all porters are well looked after and equipped, and receive a good wage for their hard work. KPAP is part of The International Mountain Explorers Connection (IMEC) who created the scheme in order to recognise tour operators who actively practice and are committed to the fair treatment of their porters and crew.

As well as being one of the leading tour operators on Kilimanjaro we also offer a wide range of safaris visiting the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Parks. Our experienced safari guides and fleet of comfortable 4x4 vehicles allow us to provide world class game viewing experiences.

A word from the team

Looking after yourself on the mountain is the most important thing - eat often and stay hydrated! No matter how fit you are, if you go too quickly the risk of getting altitude sickness goes up. You will always hear our guides advising "Pole Pole", swahili for slowly, slowly. Your safety is always our first priority.
