Tanzania Guide: Raymond
Ray was a great guy and we’d love to work with him again. I was very interested in getting great images of the animals and he made that a priority for me–he KNEW the best angles to take the image.

Raymond was outstanding! He was extremely knowledgeable about the animals and so enthusiastic about everything we saw. We did more game drives than I expected, which was great!

Ray was wonderful! Right away I could tell he was friendly, he was easy to understand, flexible about our schedule and passionate about the animals. He was great at spotting the animals and didn’t seem to mind that we wanted to be out and about all day long.
Raymond is wonderful! He kept us informed; his instructions were brief, clear, and reasons for instructions were given. He answered every question in depth. We received a clear briefing each day. Raymond was always, happy, kind and caring. I felt very safe with him. He kept our vehicle clean and stocked with water. He made sure to take us to clean restroom facilities.
We had an unforgettable, magical time in Tanzania and Ray is the main reason for this. We traveled with our 9-year old daughter and Ray had a sixth sense of what our needs were. Ray so clearly loves children, and we all connected very easily with him and loved spending time with him. We learned so much from him – about the wildlife we saw, but also about the country’s culture and language. He was always punctual and very patient with our tardiness, striking a perfect balance between just letting … Read More
