Filbert Macha

Mountain Guide

Filbert Macha

Being a Mountain Guide on Kilimanjaro is a dream come true for Filbert. Since he was a young boy, he has always wanted to guide travellers to the Roof of Africa. Taking a detour, he studied to be a firefighter after school, before training to be a qualified mountain guide. His dream of standing on to Uhuru Peak became reality on the last day of the year 1999, when he welcomed the new millennium alongside many other climbers on the top of Africa’s highest mountain. He has been a guide since 2007 and part of our team since 2013. As former firefighter Filbert is a very responsible and safety conscious mountain guide. His advice when tackling the mountain is to take it one day at a time and pacing yourself even when you still have the energy to go fast.

Filbert has climbed Mt Kilimanjaro more than 80 times.
