Tour Guides: Smith Jean-Philip & Right: Miguel
Smith Jean-Philip (call me Smith!): trip coordinator. I was born and raised in Fond Saint Jacques, near the trailhead of Mount Gimie. I speak fluent English and Creole.
Contact me and I’ll help to coordinate the trip (contact info is under the “Contact” tab). I’ll arrange for you to be picked up at the airport, your trailhead accommodations, permits, fees, and introduce you to Miguel, our expert guide.
Miguel: guide. Over the years, I’ve led about 24 trips to the summit. I was born and raised in the village of Migny. We’ll walk through Migny on the way to the top. I also speak English and Creole. I build and maintain trails in the Edmund Forest Reserve, including the Mount Gimie trail. The jungle is very dense – that’s why I’m always walking around with the machete!
