Client praise for Msuri
"The head guide Msuri Moshi could not have been better, he was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the climb, attentive and supportive to everyone in our group of ten women as well as working very well with the other guides and porters. I noted he was able to command a great deal respect in a quiet manner. It was through the experience of the head guide that all ten of us were able to summit and to get back to lower altitudes safely. I think the high morale of the guides and porters on the trek says a lot about the type of company Duma is. Thanks again to the Duma team for a great trip. Msuri was an excellent guide and the entire crew made the trip a brilliant experience."
"Msuri could take command of a group and was forever watchful over us all, very professional."
"We were glad that Msuri was in charge. He was confident and in control of every situation."
"Msuri knew how to lead his team. We were never in doubt as to who was the leader on the mountain. We were in very good hands."
