Tanzania Guide: Alex
I can’t even imagine the trip without Alex. We were so lucky to have him. Not only was he a super smart, sweet and nice guy to be around, it seemed like he was giving it his all to search for animals. Alex’s knowledge of the animals and the parks were outstanding; we could feel his passion for the job. He went above and beyond to try and make us happy. He really tried to get the hairdryer to work, which was so kind. He also taught us a lot … Read More
Excellent! Alex was friendly, informative, and an all around great guy
Willy was with us for the first six days until he had to return home due to a death in the family. He was very personable and shared his knowledge very effectively. Our group seemed to connect with him immediately. He helped us understand culture of the people of Tanzania was a very good representative of the people. He displayed expert knowledge of the wildlife and vegetation we experienced and was effective at answering questions and providing in depth explanations to help us better understand the interactions between animals, the … Read More
We had two guides due to an emergency in Willy’s family and Alex joined us for 4 days. Both of them were exceptional! The best guides I have had on any trip anywhere. They were incredibly knowledgeable on animal behavior, culture and the people of Tanzania. In addition they were kind and very receptive to our individual and group needs. Because we all wanted to maximize our time in Tanzania they were with us from early morning to dinner time and I know they had work to do before and … Read More
Energy, commitment to our experience AND to conservation of species. Extremely knowledgeable, fun and responsive to our needs. Willy and Alex were equally outstanding. I love that they are full time guides and consider it a career/profession.
Alex was extremely professional, personable, engaging, knowledgeable, and informative. We felt that he was sincere and truly wanted to ensure that we had a memorable and worry free experience. He was continuously listening for updates to see where the “action” was. He knew all the back roads in the parks to get us to where we needed to be. Additionally, he consistently made sure that our lodge check-ins were seamless.
We cannot imagine a better guide than Alex. We bonded immediately and felt safe and comfortable always. We thought Alex was exceptional.
As noted above, our guide, Alex was one of the high points of our trip. He was professional, very knowledgeable and very approachable. He answered our onslaught of questions – and was very accommodating to the needs/requests of our group. I know the rest of our group would agree that we all were sorry to say good bye to Alex. He was simply great!
Alex was really great. He was charming, and knowledgeable, and very thorough. He was responsive (always waiting while we took 2 or 200 more pictures), AND knew when to push us to do one more thing when we thought we had done enough for the day. He really communicates a love of animals, which makes the sightings more fun and interesting. He guarded against anything going wrong and made sure that we had a special experience everyday!
Alex is the absolute best – eyes of an eagle, friendly, accommodating and SO knowledgeable.
