Mussa Kijuu

Expedition Leader

Mussa was born in Arusha Tanzania with an immediate ambition for success. His first adventure on Mount Kilimanjaro was as a porter, this was life changing, the biggest and hardest thing he had ever done and within only a couple of years he had saved and studied to become one of Kilimanjaro’s most experienced guides today.

Kilimanjaro is Mussa’s office and he is very dedicated and professional and checks everything to detail before any group leaves to climb the mountain. His words of wisdom and experience to all is Respect the mountain, Be prepared with correct gear and come with Positive thoughts, the mind is a powerful thing and it’s not the fittest that makes the summit.

Mussa’s life in Africa is full of adventure. His most memorable to date is climbing in the jungle of Rwanda in search of the Great Silverback Gorilla’s and to his amazement, one of the teenage Black Back Gorilla’s patted one of the group on their back, he could not believe you can be so close to these beautiful creatures.

He loves working with 360, they have become his family and he is our head guide on Kilimanjaro helping everyone of the team reach their goals.

Moussa, Patrick and the rest of the local team were fantastic Tanzanian guides.  They, along with Stuart Shipp, were incredibly knowledgeable, encouraging, and compassionate guides, who helped many people in many ways to achieve their goals. We had altitude sickness, family emergencies, inexperience and (in my, and others’, case) fear of heights to deal with, but nothing was too much for the guiding team. Backed up with an amazing porter team, it was a very personal experience.
