    Emmanuel Mungure

    Head Mountain Guide

    Ema started with Duma in 2006 as a porter. He was promoted to head guide in 2011 after working as an assistant guide for Duma and as a chief guide for another Arusha-based travel company.  

    Ema is well versed in all Kilimanjaro routes except Umbwe. He especially enjoys hiking the Machame Route due to its beautiful forests, primates and birds. His favorite campsite is Barranco, mainly because of the wonderful views.

    Ema is Wilderness First Responder certified. In 2012, he led a two-week course along with Duma guide Msuri Moshi to train assistant guides, porters and cooks. 

    For Ema, the greatest part of the climb is viewing the glaciers at the summit.  

    Client praise for Ema

    “Ema and his team handled all our needs and more. We not only felt safe, comfortable and in some cases pampered as compared to other groups climbing, we also really enjoyed the sharing of stories with Ema. We not only climbed the highest free standing mountain in the world but we learned a great deal about the Tanzanian culture and people.”

    “Ema was very professional in the way handled the discussions with one of our team as he was making the decision on whether to summit. Ema did an excellent job in preparing me for the summit. We both came away with great memories and a true sense of accomplishment.”

    “Ema and his crew were very friendly and helpful. The whole trip was perfect, it could not have been better.”
