Tanzania Guide: David
David was completely amazing. He had a 6th sense for where the animals were, but was also sensitive to our interests and time. He knew when to take a break, when we needed water or a rest stop, and when we should break out the snacks. He meshed with our family so well and was sincerely interested in us and in making our safari experience the best it could possibly be.
David was fantastic!
We now consider David a part of our family. He went out of his way to ensure that our trip was successful. He is a master at wildlife spotting and anticipating behavior. He is also masterful at communication, navigation, comedy and so many other things. I can’t imagine a better guide for photographers. Not only did David find amazing wildlife, he was keen to position the truck for optimal lighting and photo framing. He completely understood the needs of photographers and never once tried to rush us away from an … Read More
David was fantastic in every respect. In addition to being so knowledgeable about all wildlife, the vegetation, culture, etc., he was funny and entertaining and really kept a smile on his face all day, every day. He kept us on schedule, making sure we were exactly where we needed to be, on time every single day. He made every effort to get us to the right spot at the right time and his intuition was spot on. He really made our trip.
David was always on time and was friendly and helpful. I enjoyed meeting him and having him as a guide. He worked incredibly hard to provide us with the best game viewing opportunities possible! Sometimes he seemed to be channeling the animals as he could predict where they were going to go next. Although seeing game might have been first on my list of things I wanted to happen, I was also interested in the bird life. Serendipitously we discovered that David was also an knowledgeable birder and was incredible … Read More
David was charming and really was a great fit with our family. His knowledge of flora, fauna birds and wildlife was encyclopedic. He knew every road in all four parks we visited. And he clearly loves his job and his country. On a scale of 1-10, he was an 11. He really made our trip wonderful.

We all had a great time.
David is excellent! He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the job.
Our guide, David, helped to make the trip the amazing adventure that it was! We felt comfortable with him from the start. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the animals. He even looked up animals in his guide books to make sure he was right, or that he pronounced the names correctly. He went out of his way to find as many animals as he could for us. He also parked his vehicle so we could get the best spot for our pictures. He was funny, keeping us … Read More
