Safari Guides

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.

Why Climb Kilimanjaro with Nature Discovery

We had a fantastis 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 N4gorongoro 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 recommand strongly this agency for the safaris.

ROUQUETTE France

We had a very good time. Everything worked fine. Peter was a great guide who found every animal, did drive very secure and was very friendly. He has a great knowledge and was great to discuss with about nature but also about Tanzanian society. The lodges were of very good quality or even more. Kudu Kudu camp in Serengeti was outstanding!!. All perfect!!

I will definitely recommend your company. In fact did already do so to a colleague who plans a similar trip next summer.

With kind regards,

Nous ( 2 adultes et deux ados) avons fait un safari de 6 jours en octobre 2017 en campsite. Notre experience a été magnifique. Les services de Nature Discovery ont dépassé nos attentes.
Le chauffeur guide Ephata a été extraordinaire.
Il est très professionnel , tant au niveau de sa connaissance des animaux et des parcs , beaucoup de renseignements utiles et interéssants au niveau des animaux et de la nature , une capacité incroyable à trouver les animaux cachés et difficiles à voir pour des amateurs. Il est d’une prudence extrême , toujours respectueux des règles relatives à la sécurité , et très impliqué dans le respect des animaux et de l’environement. Toujours à notre écoute pour satisfaire nos demandes. L’oganisation a été impeccable , aucune critique n’est possible.Le montage et le démontage des tentes rapide et efficace. Le confort dans les tentes a été incroyable , lits de camp , oreillers , draps , sacs de couchages .Quant au cuisinier , il nous a régaler Durant 6 jours avec ses repas faits sur place matin ,midi et soir. Une grande diversité et une qualité vraiment bien. Le cuisinier ainsi que le guide ont été d’une grande gentillesse et discretion , nous avons pu échanger , parler et ce fut vraiment appreciable , car le guide parlait aussi très bien français.
D’autre part le prix pour ces prestations était tout à fait raisonnable.
Pour conclure je dirai que je recommande chaudement cette agence , et que notre experience restera inoubliable.
un grand merci à toute l’équipe.
