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.

Our group of more than 20 woman were all so appreciative of the professionalism of Nature Discovery. It was evident during some of our safaris that other operators were not as respectful of the wildlife and were close to running down animals to get a spot “up front and center”. Our drivers were extremely knowledgeable about all the wildlife as well as the many species of birds. We so enjoyed their wonderful attitudes and their sense of humor was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend using Nature Discovery for any adventures you may want to explore while in Tanzania.
The team is delighted to share that not only are we freezing our current Kilimanjaro trek rates through 2022, but we are lowering the rates for single and double travellers, and even better, lowering our LITE service rates as well.
“The best a man (or woman) can get,” is how travel writer and award-winning Trailblazer author Henry Stedman describes us in the latest edition of Kilimanjaro - The Trekking Guide to Africa's Highest Mountain.
Kilimanjaro’s glaciers are disappearing rapidly. This is due to warmer, drier conditions resulting in the glaciers, which are literally drying out or ‘sublimating’ (solid ice evaporating straight to gas).
