Hi, I'm Yusuf

My name is YUSUF NGAINA, married with three kids. I’m a Professional guide with an experience of 20 years in the field, guiding both Safari and Mount Kilimanjaro summits over 200 times and served a thousand couple of clients. I also organize Safaris in North and Southern National Parks in Tanzania, which includes:- Serengeti National Park, Arusha National Park, Lake Manyara,Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater, Conservation Area, Ruaha, Selous and Nyerere. In addition, I do private and sharing Tour, organize cultural Tourism with home stays, which is not only giving clients adventure but also engaging with communities which I highly recommend for the young guys. It teaches them to appreciate how lucky they are, thus changing their life in a good way and building their future. This is an experience we have learned from our previous clients since, I have been working with kids from Colorado and life line University from USA. I have been engaging with the local people in the area in all my tours, for them to benefit, increase their income, and also get a chance to respect nature as they acquire knowledge from our Professional guides. The reason why I choose YUSUF Is because we are giving back to the community by supporting them in education, getting solutions while partnering with the journey from USA, building houses and water wells for widows and abandoned women in Lake Eyasi (very remote area in Tanzania). Feel free to visit https://journeysofsolutions.org/ to see what we do with the community. I am glad to be part of Go Africa platform.

Overview

Standing tall at 4,566m, Mt. Meru is Tanzania’s second highest mountain. It is located in Arusha National Park and offers some of the most spectacular scenery and wildlife diversity of any mountain in Tanzania. Mt. Meru is a challenging trek due to its steepness, but is an excellent way to acclimatize before attempting Mt. Kilimanjaro. Climbers are accompanied by an armed ranger due to the abundance of wildlife on the lower slopes. Mt. Meru also has some historical significance to it whereby some have suggested that it was the resting place of Noah’s Ark when it came to rest after the biblical flood receded. Mt. Meru is a great trekking option for those who want to take on a climbing challenge and get the sense of being out in the wild, but are not quite ready to tackle Mt. Kilimanjaro.
