Tanzania Guide: Raymond
Ray is terrific! He is a talented guide and lovely, fun human being. Each day with him was thrilling. He is so knowledgeable about all species, and an amazing tracker. And he taught us much about his beautiful Tanzania.
We felt like Raymond was part of the family. Eagle-eyes while spotting game; quiet; knowledgeable about habits, foods, dung, areas where animals hang out. Professional about keeping his great friend and colleague, Alex’s death from us so as not to impact our trip! (Not necessary but so thoughtful!) Raymond knew about plant/animal interactions too – like ants and giraffes and whistling acacia trees. He found TWO not one leopard tortoise for us! He was willing to hang out for almost an hour waiting for a black rhino to get closer. … Read More
We couldn’t have asked for anyone better. Raymond was extremely knowledgeable about the country, the culture and the wildlife. He went out of his way to find animals and viewing opportunities for us. He was an exceptional guide.
Raymond was an absolute pleasure to travel with. Forever we will hear him saying “Let’s Rrrrrock and Rrrroll!” and “Life is good!” and “My friends….” phrases that punctuated our journey and made us smile. His guidance, attitude, pace and delightful personality were nothing but a pleasure to travel with. He is a patient Swahili instructor, knowledgable nature guide, enthusiastic animal and bird watcher, and excellent driver. We cannot recommend him enough and hope that he will also be the guide for the Levin family when they travel in June for … Read More
Ray was very good! He knew everything and he took really good care of us.
Ray was a wonderful guide, very accomodating to our little group’s desires. He showed sincere care for our well being and comfort, was alway on time and in good humor. He has an amazing ability to find the hard to see animals (Rhino’s and leopards). While we peppered Ray with questions on all variety of animals and birds to the Masai people customs, he exhibited a broad knowledge of the area, its peoples etc. Felt like I learned so much from Ray and would recommend him to any of our … Read More
Wilfred and Raymond were fantastic and they were what made our trip as special as it was! They each added something a little different, and had an ease with us and with each other. I liked seeing the respect they have for each other. It is clear they both have a passion for their work. When we were able to see a leopard take down a zebra and then carry it into a tree, we knew we were seeing something rare because of their excitement.
Where to start, Raymond was the best. I went on this Trip with my 78 year old Mother, 2 niece’s and son. He took care of us all. Then made sure “Grandma” was well taken care of. He was very knowledgeable of the parks and the wild life. He made the trip for all of us. Thank You Ray.
Ray is a very knowledgeable, friendly guy. It feels that he really likes the people and enjoys his job.
