Karibu! Welcome! Tanzania is known worldwide for snow-capped Kilimanjaro, Serengeti wildlife, and the exotic island of Zanzibar. While these draw visitors to my country, our goal at Summit Expeditions and Nomadic Experience (SENE) is also to provide a rewarding personal experience that will be fondly remembered for a lifetime. We share the rare beauty and magic of Tanzania as expressed in its people, its land, its varied environments, and its vast array of flora, fauna, and bird-life. These are found not only in its famed national parks, but also in the villages, farms, and back roads of this extraordinary country. We aim for your adventure with us to be a holistic travel experience – broadening understanding and establishing bonds of friendship that last across distance, time, and culture.
All SENE adventures, whether Kilimanjaro trekking, wildlife safaris, bike tours, or running trips, includes time in my home village, Marangu Mbahe, in the foothills of Kilimanjaro, where the local people, the Chagga, warmly welcome guests. Visitors stay in the comfortable guest cottages I built on my family farm, where one experiences the daily rhythms and vibrancy of African village life.
Karibu sana Tanzania! I warmly welcome you to Tanzania! I was born on the slopes of Kilimanjaro; I am a child of the mountain and a proud Tanzanian. My team and I work hard to care for the mountain environment and all the beautiful places we bring our guests, so that the country will continue to be an attractive destination for adventure-seekers and a wonderful place to live for our children and future generations of Tanzanians. Let us share with you our Tanzania for your adventure of a lifetime!

“If you want to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, pick any guide service. But if you want to experience Africa, Tanzania, and its people, as well as climb the mountain, SENE is your only choice.”
“There isn’t one thing I can think of that SENE didn’t do perfectly!”
“Summit Expeditions deserves mention for the respect and kindness they show their porters. …Those who choose this company are often effusive in their praise.”
