About
His name is Peter Kinyaiya, The local Tour Guide & Operator in Tanzania, born and raised on the slope of our Majestic Mount Kilimanjaro at 1400m. Being a Senior Guide & Managing Director at Twende Africa Tours Company is a dream come true for him. Since he was a young boy, he always wanted to guide travelers to the Roof of Africa. He was a porter on Mt Kilimanjaro for more than 6 years before keeping some money and go back to college and trained to be a qualified tour guide. After working for other companies for 10 years, he decided to get into the field and run safaris and trekking tours by himself. In 2014, Twende Africa Tours was found with his comrade porters all from the brotherhood. Our dream was to provide ordinary people with the life-changing opportunity to climb the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro. By booking to us you support the life of local communities directly; we will take you there not to send you there!

Can’t thank Peter enough for making our experience seamless from start to finish. From picking us up at airport to reorganising flights to checking in with our guides on our welfare during our adventures, Peter made our experience easy and enjoyable.

The Kilimanjaro team; Eli, Ephata and the 9 others were awesome. A very experienced crew whose priority was our safety and well-being, there was always a friendly greeting from all the guys on our arrival at camp. From epic 5 minute morning singing send offs, all the porters stoping when they passed us to chat and laugh, rockstar treatment of food deliveries, boot cleaning at days end, morning bed tea/coffee, constant motivational singing when the climb got tough to all the boys teaching us Swahili there’s too much to list all that they did to make this trip so memorable. As mentioned earlier, very experienced guides who after ensuring we summited safely, assisted other groups who were suffering from altitude sickness. So thank you Eli, Ephata, Richie, Seb, Yahaya, Masanja, Ramsu Goeg, Babuu, Zawadi and Yula you all made this a trip of a lifetime.

Pasiace our Safari guide was very experienced, knew where to find all the animals and drove around tirelessly to keep to our tight schedule. Also more than happy to chat and educate us over dinner and beer at days end, thanks Pasiace

If you’re considering a trip to Tanzania send Peter and Twende a message, you won’t regret it. He only uses local experiences guides and honestly the team we went with is what made our trip so memorable.

Took on climbing Kilimanjaro for my 30th Birthday. Route: Machame. 5 nights, 6 days.

Twende Safaris helped me plan the trip, and was very attentive to my needs and requests and questions. Peter is an attentive listener, and very kind. He and his team made my birthday very special, and the hike relatively easy, fun and enjoyable!

I would recommend this company over and over again. They give the best of Tanzanian Hospitality. Worth every penny!

Twende African Tours Company did an outstanding job in coordinating our hike to Kilimanjaro summit and a safari tour in Serengeti National Park. Peter Kinyaiya and his team of guides, cook, porters and the driver clearly understood that we were there seeking a unique and once-in-a-lifetime experience. Their commitment to providing the best possible experience for the entire 10-day trip was unparalleled. Without their constant encouragement and support, none of us would have made it to the Kilimanjaro Summit. Within a short time, every team member made us feel like we all belong to one family and the feeling only became stronger as the days went by during the 10-day trip. If you are interested in taking an adventure like we did, we highly recommend Twende African Tours Company. - Murthy, Peter, Chandra @ Racine, Wisconsin, USA (Oct 7, 2022)

Twende Africa tours is a start-up, tanzanian owned tour operator for climbing Kilimandjaro. I initially gave a chance to this company because I was looking for a more local, authentic experience, and I was not disappointed. First, I received a flexible and tailored service. Peter, the owner, accompanied me from my arrival in Tanzania to the beginning of the climb, and adapted the hike to my schedule. The guide, Joseph, was extremely professional and his experienced and expertise lead me to the summit. The whole team was so welcoming and contributed in giving me an incredible experience. If you are looking for an authentic, local and adaptable experience while climbing Kilimandjaro, definitely give Twende a try!

We did a morning trip to a Materuni coffee farm + traditional Chagga lunch on site with Peter, followed by a quick walking tour of Moshi in the afternoon. It was great! Peter was friendly, engaging and very knowledgeable. The coffee experience was very interesting (the coffee itself truly delicious) and it was fun to share food from Peter’s tribe with him. We were also glad to visit Moshi with him, which meant we went to places e would not have gone to by ourselves.

This is the best local tour company to get you to the top of Kilimanjaro and to have the most wonderful Safari! Not only the website and communication is very professional, also all the guides and other crew. The owner Peter is extremly helpfull, friendly and having a good time is his number one priority. Twende Africa gave us the Kilimanjaro experience that everyone deserves. A very pofessional and always happy crew, the best food, great briefings and a lot of fun during the evenings. They got us to the top without any problems. After Kili we went on safari in Serengeti and Ngorongoro, again professional and friendly guide, wonderful accomodations, food and service. Peter organized everything personally and nothing was to much of an ask. Best value for money!

We had an wonderful time climbing Kilimanjaro with Twende Africa. Peter was extremely helpful and it was very easy to book and organize our trip online from the USA. When we arrived in Tanaznia we were picked up at the airport and briefed before starting our climb the next day. Our guides, porters and cook were all amazing and made the climb excellent fun. Not just a great hike, but also a cultural experience with amazing food! We finished our climb a day early and Peter took as on a free city tour in Moshi on our extra day. I would recommend Twende Africa to anyone!
