During our travels in recent years to mountains from Ladakh to Peru to Pakistan to Tanzania, we found Walter Miya to be as dependable and resourceful as any travel directors or tour leaders that we have encountered. In a land where the hazards are only a problem if one is unprepared, we always felt well prepared with Walter on walking safaris in the jungle (amidst elephants and buffalo) or at 15,000 feet in a dense fog. In a place where you will want logistics and arrangements to go smoothly, Walter steps forward to handle the tiniest details and explains everything in a knowledgable manner. With his wealth of Eastern Africa experience, Walter will make this magical part of the world come alive for you!

About Mount Kilimanjaro by walter

While the African people have known and used Mt. Kilimanjaro for hundreds of generations, the first recorded reference to the mountain were made by foreigners.

In the 19th century, Bagamoyo was a major port of the ivory trade and the terminus for the slave caravans, and briefly served as the capital of German East Africa. Fine Arabic and German colonial buildings are preserved in a lovely coastal setting.
