Director: David Charles Mshana; Mr. David Mshana born in 1978, is a husband and a father of 3
wonderful boys (Calvin, Collins and Clinton). David’s experience with Mt. Kilimanjaro can be
traced as far back as 1998. Since this year Mr. David has put into record more than 500 summits.
During all this time David has been very diligent and passionate in his role as Chief Guide for
Kilimanjaro and always puts forward the safety and success of his clients. Given a nickname “Mr.
Pole pole” a Swahili word mean “slow by slow” (On Kilimanjaro hiking, enhancement of
acclimatization especially to non-high altitude experts, motion is a determinant factor.
Furthermore Mr. David is a registered, and Certified Mountain Guide under License No. KG 1981
under full route guide category.
Asking Mr. David what inspired him to become a mountain guide, he responded by saying “I
came from Pare Mountains, I was climbing the mountains almost my entire childhood; from
water fetching to all other day to day domestic activities, and even from going to school and
back home, it was all mountains. I was living in the mountains and without any direct
consciousness on mountains, it shaped me into become a mountaineer. In 1994 I was in
secondary school and we had a school trip to hike Mount Kilimanjaro. It was my first time to
high altitude mountains, I was one of very few people who made it to Uhuru peak. Since then,
the image of how beautiful the roof of Africa is has been in my mind. From that experience I
made it my life ambition to become a mountain guide and help people to experience mountains
experience since I was once helped to reach at the roof of Africa”.
David’s Most challenging summit was in 2004, having started the hike; they reached at west
bridge area and a massive rock falling happened, where David lost 4 of his clients and 2 porters.
That was a very sad moment David had in his entire career, and because of that incident that
route was closed due to the risk for rock falling.
(May their souls rest in peace)
Moving from the incident of 2004, that very same year David had a task to hike in Kilimanjaro
with 38 clients through Marangu route, that was the biggest number of clients he had ever
hiked with. With that group from Norway, David marked one of his biggest achievements as a
mountain guide, where; 33 clients reached the Uhuru peak, 3 clients made it up to Gilman’s point
and only 3 ended at the last camp before summit, the Kibo Huts camp.
Until this day, Mr. David is one of the most experienced and successful Mountain guides
Tanzania is lucky to have and He keeps on with “pole pole” movements to the roof of Africa.
June 2018, he witnessed one of his lifetime dreams of owning a tour company come into reality.
he is now the chief guide and one of the directors for Enjoy Kili Ltd.
