Company profile

Like many people also I had a big wish to go to Africa. Many years ago my wish came true and I was lucky enough to get the best safari guide there is. Mr. Godfrey made my first trip in Africa unforgettable and after returning back to Tanzania as a tour guide every year, he also became my very good friend. As a team we were working really well together, always helping each other and we had a same idea what is the goal of our work: “We want to make our clients as happy and satisfied as possible.”

The best part of our work and friendship was the fact that we both were many years working in tourism and in those years we gained an enormous knowledge. Today we know each other so well that many times words are not necessary we can read each others thoughts. After some years it was Godfrey’s idea that a team like us should establish a travel agency so our business today is result of long and sincere friendship.
