Our safari guides are permanent staff at Nature Discovery; a group of professionals who are passionate to share the wonders of northern Tanzania’s rich wildlife and diverse landscapes. They receive training from naturalists, conservation specialists, professional safari guides, wilderness doctors and even psychologists, on the varied skills which make for superlative safari guiding.
Our safari team is comprised of nine driver-guides and four walking guides, most of whom have been with us for over ten years and have an impressive resume of experience as well as a detailed knowledge of the legendary African bush found in Serengeti National Park and surrounds, plus the special tucked-away places off the main tourist tracks.
The driver guides spend at least six full months of each year in northern Tanzania’s game parks and reserves, building their bush knowledge and experience. They are all keen observers and game spotters, and impressive game trackers too. We pride ourselves on safe driving principles, including providing seat belts on every seat of our fleet of Toyota Land Cruiser safari vehicles.
Japhet Maleko, driver-guide at ND since 1996
We had a fantastic safari with Japhet (we did three safaris with him). He is a perfect guide with an excellent eye to spot animals and who takes all the time to wait for something special. In 12 days in Serengeti and Ngorongoro we saw one female cheetah with her cub trying to chase two times a gazelle; one female leopard playing with her cub, one lionness catching a zebra; more leopards in the trees with their kill…..We recommend strongly this agency for the safaris.
I would heighly recommend Nature Discovery To anyone seeking the perfect safari experience! From the accommodations to the highly experienced friendly staff, absolutely everything was exceptional! I will be pinching myself for weeks to come! Thank you Nature Discovery!
Vraiment très bien : un chauffeur/guide prévenant, efficace, ponctuel, sympathique, parlant bien le français, des hébergements au top, conforme au « contrat » négocié depuis la France. On recommande à 100%. C’était Génial
