“KILIMANJARO THROUGH THE EYES OF A NATIVE MAASAI –
“For those of you who dream of traveling to Africa, this presentation is a fascinating glimpse into the land of Mount Kilimanjaro where there are over a thousand bird species, ecosystems ranging from jungle to desert, and fascinating cultures.
“Senior Tanzanian safari, trekking and climbing guide, Kambona Ole Tirra Mollel, will speak and present a slide show about his experiences as a guide and as a native in this area. Having climbed Kilimanjaro over 100 times, as well as Mount Kenya and Mount Meru, Kambona has a unique and unparalleled view of this fascinating destination.
“Kambona, who is native Maasai and trilingual, is also known for his funny and engaging talks. The accompanying slideshow will be an incredible display of some of the most exotic wildlife and ecology on the planet.Whether you want to learn about mountaineering, safari viewing or Maasai culture, this presentation is sure to inspire wanderlust in everyone.”
We are pretty excited to have Kambona visit us in Helena, and to get him onto a mountain bike to show him some of Helena’s great trails, as he is an avid biker back home in Tanzania.
