My name is Mwangi M. Samuel (Sammy), born and raised in the lands of Gikuyu community who dwells on the slopes of Mount Kenya. From our tradition and cultural practices, we refer Mt Kenya as Kirinyaga in our local language meaning the realm of our God (Mwene Nyaga) who lives on the highest Spiky peaks overlooking his people and livestock.

After high school, I had to work as a mountain porter to sustain my teenage upkeep whereby I grew gaining practical experience and outdoors knowledge the hard way from poor working conditions to wearing inappropriate clothes and shoes. Little did I knew that my poters’ job was a gateway to discovering my passion and love for outdoors.

Later, I joined the school of outdoor leadership at Mount Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) in collaboration with International Mountaineering and Climbing Federation (UIAA). I was accredited in Mountain Leadership Skills, Wilderness First Aid, Outdoor Ethics, Certified and Licensed handling most of wild challenges.

“Running Spiky Tours its all about being your reliable guide to finding quality, authentic and trusted outdoor activities at a higher level season after season is my satisfaction”- Sammy.

Inspired by my daughter born on the same Covid season.
