Tanzania Guide: Alex
Alex is the absolute best – eyes of an eagle, friendly, accommodating and SO knowledgeable.
We adopted him! He became part of our family from day one! I cannot say enough good things about Alex. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner with Alex. During each meal, he gave us options for our next game drive. He further customized our drive which made the trip even more special. His wit and wisdom were not lost on us. We joked, kidded and learned a great deal about each other.
Alex was kind, patient, funny, enjoyable, joyful, competent, and sharing in addition to being able to spot and identify animals and birds perfectly. His sense of us and what we wanted in our safari was wonderful; he took time to stop and really watch all the animals and the birds. His sense of humor and kindness to us and to others was beyond perfect. After ten days with Alex, we felt he was part of our family and we were part of his. He made our safari a true once … Read More
Alex is a very responsive, alert, interesting, and enjoyable to be with guide. He had an uncanny, in a good way, ability to spot animals.

He is knowledgeable about the animals and plants and easily shared information with us. His English is very good. He is likable. He has a respect for the animals and the land. We got along … Read More
Alex was great. He was incredibly knowledgable and answered all the questions we threw at him. We still don’t know how he was able to spot half the animals he found. He made us comfortable and was happy to go at whatever pace we wanted. He was a genuine, nice person and we really enjoyed getting to know him.
I think a guide can make or break the safari experience, since so many things and smoothness of the trip depends on him. We were lucky to have Alex, who was able to deal with all of our requests and questions. He made us feel at ease and accommodated our needs throughout the journey. He has a vast knowledge about animals as well as culture and history of Tanzania. And the most amazing capability- he has eagle-eyes!!! I still can’t believe how far he can see without the binoculars!!! So … Read More
We could not have had a better guide; Alex exceeded our expectations. Alex’s English was excellent. His knowledge and respect of the animals was awesome. He had an amazing ability to spot animals. It was great to have a guide that loved watching the animals – he got just as excited as we did at seeing them. We were happy that he wanted to stay out as long as we could to a see the animals.
Simply, Alex was AMAZING! It was clear from the start that he is really passionate about animals and gets excited about being on the safari every time he was on it. He is extremely knowledgeable about all of the facts, but more than that, is an amazing observer of animals and can really tell you what the animal is going to do next. We also loved that Alex was super mindful and perfect for the intent of our trip. We were on our honeymoon, and as much as we liked … Read More
