This experience encouraged him to join training courses for wildlife guides and to continue his training with courses conducted by wildlife experts. He has guided several safaris for world renowned media publications including National Geographic. As a Pare, he has an excellent knowledge of the culture and local community life in Tanzania. With his 12 years as a safari guide he manages our team of guides to ensure that all Africa Experience Safari clients have the trip of a lifetime and discover the amazing ecology, wildlife and wonders of Tanzania.
African Experience is not only intending to recruit and train youths but we also deal directly with the community development by educating, training, supplying books, exercise books, pens, etc and that is why in our itinerary we put an option for a game drive in village or to visit Cultural tourism Centre and few projects we facilitates in village . we are encouraged to say that as you pay or travel with African Experience, you will have contributed in one way or the other to the development of village community. A Tanzania Culture addition will compliment your safari and complete your experience of Africa. All Tanzania Culture Safaris are organized with gentleness and respect for the cultures, villagers and homes we visit. Our hope is for you to meet the diverse cultures first hand and to experience what makes Tanzania so special. - -
Our guides are all former students of the Shambalai secondary school in Lushoto. Some of them have to wait one year for further education, others won't continue studying and try to find suitable work. All speak reasonable to good English, are familiar with the area and can tell you many interesting stories about history and daily life in the Usambara Mountains. They hope to earn some income through their work as guides and at the same promote village development to improve the living conditions of the Shambaa people.
