Later this month, Macon Dunnagan, the Tanzanian Goodwill ambassador in the United States, will begin climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for the 47th time with a group of visitors.
Dunnagan will begin his 47th six-day ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro through the Rongai route during an interview.
He added: “I would like to thank everyone who made my Mount Kilimanjaro climbs successful including officials at the Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA) and my professional mountain guide, Edwin Kilawe from ZARA Tours. I’ve climbed Mount Kilimanjaro 46 times, but what I experienced from Mount Meru climbing last year was more challenging than Kili as I used a special chain to make a technical climb.
Dunnagan praised President Samia Suluhu Hassan for producing the Royal Tour Documentary, noting that it had been successful in promoting Tanzania as a tourist destination throughout the world.
He continued by saying that President Samia made the right choice in supporting the movie since it would assist bring in additional investment, which will lead to the creation of employment.
Before they were legally wed in the US, the Goodwill Ambassador proposed to Kim Brown in the Serengeti National Park (SENAPA) a number of years ago. To commemorate their union, ZARA Tours prepared a unique excursion to climb Mount Kilimanjaro through the Rongai Route.
Macon, who has scaled Mount Kilimanjaro 46 times with ZARA Tours, travels to Tanzania twice or three times a year with a group of people to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and other tourist attractions in Tanzania, such as Serengeti National Park (SENAPA), for pleasure or charitable purposes.
The Goodwill Envoy for Tanzania in the US claimed to have scaled Mount Kilimanjaro 46 times and written numerous books about the allure of the nation’s tourist destinations, including his well-known book entitled “Sons of Kilimanjaro.” He was later named a Goodwill Ambassador for Tanzania’s tourism by the Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB).
The Goodwill Ambassador scaled Mount Meru’s tallest summit, the Meru Summit, which is 4562 meters above sea level, last year.
In the Arusha national park, he also visited the Little Serengeti and Momella lakes in addition to climbing Mount Meru.
