About

I’m Tanzanian through and through, with a misplaced affinity for cheesy romance movies (who doesn’t love Titanic!) and Country and Western music (something my friends are forever teasing me about). The first thing you’ll notice about me is that I love meeting new people and making them smile. The second is that I have a deep passion for and knowledge of my home country.

If you’re setting foot in Africa for the first time, Tanzania can seem bewildering, daunting, and exotic. But I’m here to settle you in and give you insider knowledge about our language, customs and beliefs. How do you eat ugali with one hand? Everyone learns ‘jambo’ as a greeting, but what words do Tanzanians really use? What do local people do when they believe their personal ‘star’ is no longer shining? Kevin, can you teach me how to moonwalk? (why yes!)

You’ll have me on hand to help and advise you before, throughout, and even after your tour – perhaps you’ll even join me on another one of my experiences! After booking your place on my tour, you’ll receive some personal pre-travel advice on Tanzanian etiquette, and a little on the  language – starting with; ‘how on earth do you pronounce Ngorongoro?’

A few things you should know about the people of Tanzania: we love to smile, laugh, sing, dance, and have fun (any excuse!) We wear our hearts on our sleeves and form friendships quickly and naturally. In fact, in my native language, Kiswahili, the word ‘mgeni’ meaning ‘foreigner’, is the same as the word for ‘guest’. Here you are not a tourist but a new companion, and that is the feeling I want you to experience as your personal host. Karibu nyumbani! Tanzania welcomes you home!

Tanzania nightclub

When one thinks of Tanzania, usually what comes to mind is the lush green plains and safari adventures to explore the wide range of exotic wild animals that roam around freely. However, that is not all there is to Tanzania and there is a lot more to explore, such as the very happening nightlife scene of the Tanzanian cities, such as Dar es Salaam.
