Peponi Expeditions Kilimanjaro & Safaris
I’m David Ayumwi Lyimo.
Born in 1981 in Mbahe, a rural village near Marangu, I grew up right on the foot of Kilimanjaro and near to the wonderful National Parks. At the age of 13, for a first time I visited a National Park, and two years later I started to trek. Since then I always knew that safaris and expeditions would by may way to contribute to my familiy’s livelihood. I was very fortunate, because already on my first trek, which I attended as a porter, I got invited by clients for a visit to the United States.
Over the last two decades, I companied more than 50 safaris and was over 70 times on the top of Kilimanjaro. In 2012 I founded my own company, which I run with the attitude I learned to be right since my very early days: honesty and love to every detail.
At the same time I care for the development of my home region, the life quality of the people in the villages in and around Mbahe.
