My Work

Hire Me

In my 10 years of experience in guiding on Kilimanjaro and in the Serengeti, I have grown as a leader of trips. I began as a porter when I was 25, moved on to being a sheriff for Kilimanjaro National Park, and then attended guide school so I could better share in my joy in nature with others. I work independentaly as well as with The Roof of Africa Adventures and other companies. I am available for taking on new work. See my contact information below and get in touch.

Work With Me

My skills and specialities include certificate in guiding from Mweka Wildlife College, a professional drivers license from Veta Driving School, plus extensive first aid training. This plus my extensive experience on Kilimanjaro and in the Serengeti prepares me to be the best guide in Tanzania.

About Me

Lucas Gilbert is the best Tanzanian guide for your climb up Mount Kilimanjaro or for a safari or just as a driver to get you where you want to go.

Lucas Gilbert grew up in the town of Mwanza near Serengeti National Park but Kilimanjaro’s snowy peak has held his imagination throughout his life. His uncle Protus Mayunga and his grandfather Simon Mayunga have guided clients to over 1000 successful summits in over 30 years. Often working beside his family, Lucas carries on this impressive legacy leading summit trips many times each year, and he has reached the summit of Kilimanjaro more than 120 times himself.

I love nature and sharing it with people. My home country of Tanzania is a very special place because we have the highest mountain in Africa, Mt Kilimanjaro with many different plants and animals living there. Also in Tanzania, Ngorongoro is where the Massai people live closely with their own domesticated animals side by side with wild animals like giraffes, rhinos, elephants, lions, and more.
