Meet Our Guides
At Easy Travel, our guests are the most important people. But after our guests, our guides are very important too. Why?
When you take a trip with us, most of your time will be spent with your guide. His passion for his job, his knowledge of nature, his driving ability and – most of all – his personality will be key factors in making sure that your safari or trekking is memorable. It is through his trained eyes that you will best understand the wonders of nature that you are witnessing; through the sharing of his knowledge that you will get a real feeling for the Tanzania culture and its colourful people.
That’s why we take great care in selecting our guides. Knowing their job is simply not enough for us to employ someone as a guide. They must love the land, the animals, the culture and the people and be able to share that love with all our passengers. They must go about their work with a genuine smile and a sense of humour.
We have driver-guides who speak English, Spanish, French, Italian and German – not something that many of our competitors can boast. Many have been with us for over twenty years.
We firmly believe that we have the best guides in the business. But more importantly, it’s what our guests believe that is really important. We invite you to take a look on our many Tripadvisor reviews and see what our guests say about our guides. Many comment that, long before the end of their trip, they felt that their guide had become their ‘friend’ or even ‘a member of the family.’ These comments are the best recommendation we could hope for.

Adrian is a long serving staff member for Easy Travel. With an incredible 19 years which continues to grow. Always seeking new challenges he is a fantastic Tanzania guide.
Originally from the Ruvuma region in Tanzania, Claus is a one of our dedicated driver-guides with a passion for spotting leopard as his highlight on any expedition on Safari.
If Cornel was to choose one location for taking his guests, it would be the Ngorongoro Crater. The reason behind this is because you get three types of attraction, ecological, cultural, and archaeological.
It is the opportunity to interact with visitors from other cultures that brings a smile to the face of Deogratius. He has been with Easy Travel as a driver-guide since 2012!
Originally Elias started out with Easy Travel as a chef, but in 2009 he took the plunge to become a driver-guide. He said it changed his lifestyle completely and he loves the different he can make.
Thomas swapped a career in accountancy with the government for the very different life of being a guide. With so many choices and experiences he could not name his favourite National Park.
Having worked for Easy Travel for over seventeen years, Emmilian can definitely claim to be one of the companies most experienced staff members. He also takes the role of tour leader.
Although Tanzania’s Animals are high on his priority, he takes great pride in the beauty of the birdlife and that a Tanzania Safari has to offer especially the population of Pink Flamingoes.
Freddy is a native of Arusha and has been with Easy Travel since 2011. He enjoys working with International customers as he learns about their experiences and their cultures.
With all his experience, Gerald chooses Arusha National Park as his favourite location in Tanzania. Not only for the game viewing but the opportunity to take walking safaris.
For his favourite National Park, Gilbert chooses Uduzungwa, ``because of its unique location...and animals which cannot be seen anywhere else in the world.``
Hamdani appreciates all the national parks and game reserves in Tanzania, noting how they change in character across the seasons, but he has a particular liking for the Serengeti.
His personal favourite amongst Tanzania's varied wildlife is the giraffe, for its quirky characteristics and its unusual change of gait when it gallops.
Jackson is from the Waisenye tribe and was born in a small village in the north-west of Tanzania. One of the true pleasures of his job, he says, is telling interesting stories and sharing information about Tanzania
Louis has an enviable claim to fame: having started his employment with Easy Travel in 1995, he is indisputably its longest serving employee.
The sheer uniqueness of the 'Great Migration' makes Serengeti the best national park, in Ombeni's opinion. He continues to prove his work ethics with his bubbly personality.
Richard was working as a freelance with four different tour companies, before he joined Easy Travel in 2013. His favourite animal is the African Wild Dog.
