Elipokea Urio

Mountain Guide

Elipokea Urio

Elipokea is a true self-starter and dedicated mountaineer. He started his mountain career as porter in 2007 and has been part of our team since our early days. Rising through the ranks of waiter, tent crew and summit porter, he knew he could go even further. After obtaining a Wildlife Management certificate and completing further training, Elipokea was promoted to Assistant Guide in 2013 and Head Guide in 2016. He absorbs knowledge whenever he gets the chance to, be it educational degrees or intercultural skills when spending time with his guests. He will happily share his vast knowledge about the mountain, the animals and Tanzania’s culture with you. At Tanzania-Experience he is valued for his commitment and dedication. His aim is to guide you safely to the top, and more importantly safely back down.

Elipokea has climbed Mt Kilimanjaro more than 120 times as guide and many more times as porter.
