Born in Nairobi Kenya

When God created this earth, he had a purpose. He put in it a lot of wonders, wildlife, valleys, mountains and different people, He also gave us different gifts and for me God gave me a gift of showing others God’s creations, skills to communicate and relate with people relatively well. This is where my skills as Professional Tour Guide and Administrator come in handy. I am fortunate enough to do what I love doing most.
My professional carrier in East Africa’s Safari industry began in 2000. With an in-depth knowledge of business and an unspoken passion to promote tourism in East Africa.

You need me in the bush, on the road, in the cities and everywhere whenever you require me to take and serve you. I know very well what clients want to enjoy in the shot time they have in my part of the world. I strive to satisfy the volume of the visitors I guide with focus on the fun and lasting friendship that is gained in the course.
