My name is Godbless, and I was born at the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro in a village called Machame. I was looking up the mountain every day as I was walking to school, and knew that one day I would be standing on its top.
After completed Secondary School, I started working as a porter, and this was without a doubt a hardest job I ever had. Over time I saved money to put myself through Safari College and became first an assistant, and later lead mountain guide, reaching the top of Kilimanjaro more than 100 times.
In 2009 I finally made my dream come true and founded Bless Africa Tours and Safaris, and today I am proud to share my knowledge and passion for Kilimanjaro and Tanzania’s National Parks with our clients.
Having worked myself to the top, I have a true appreciation for the work that the guides and porters do and what it takes to provide great service and an unforgettable experience. Our clients and their satisfaction are of the utmost importance to me, and I am proud to share a piece of Tanzania with them.
My name is Danny, and I manage the day to day operations of Bless Africa Tours. My job is to make sure all your equipment and supplies are secured for a Kilimanjaro climb or safari. One of my tasks is to coordinate with the guides and porters, and I will probably be the one at the gate wishing you good luck or welcoming you back.
I’ve been part of Bless Africa Tours and Safaris team since 2012, and I am honored to be a member of this family owned and operated business. I am very proud of the country I call home, and the programs and packages our company provides to our clients, because it is of utmost importance for me that your holiday with us becomes memorable.

Our guides are very experienced, and most of them have reached the summit more than a hundred times! They are professionals who know the mountain inside and out.
Porter welfare is very important to us, so we do our best to make sure that our staff is treated well. We strive to hire the best porters available, and to provide them with fair and honest treatment, as well as other staff necessary for such expeditions. We make sure that:
