Glorious Adventure

In 2013 my wife and I enjoyed a private safari in Tanzania. Our trip wasorganized by our friend, Skip Horner, a long time expedition leader andguide. He wanted everything to go perfectly for his old friends and knowing how important a guide is, Skip hand-picked Baraza to be our guide and driver. Our 9-day safari with Baraza was a glorious adventure. It was all new to us on our first trip to Africa but Baraza was home and we were lucky to be with him. His knowledge was more than we could absorb. Baraza eloquently told us about the wildlife species and their habits, cultural history of the people and the region, geology and topography of the area, as well as environmental concerns and preservation efforts. A seasoned guide, Baraza has an uncanny ability to spot wildlife at remarkable distances. He knows his homeland well and where to find the wildlife. He is well known and respected by outfitters, guides, hotel personnel and locals. Our safari was flawless due to Baraza and his experience and expertise. We highly recommend Baraza's Matango Expeditions and know you will be more than happy with your adventure with him.

Trustworthy and Reliable

Baraza is delightful. We lived in Arusha for over a year, and Baraza took my family on many Safaris. We always recommended Baraza to our friends. He is honest, trustworthy and reliable.

Brilliance in guiding as well as driving and negotiating tricky terrain, you couldn’t be in better hands.

As a retired biologist, I was superbly impressed by Baraza’s expertise, depth of knowledge and ability to read animals. Nothing escaped his expert vision, he’d spot something so far away (while driving at 30 mph at times) that we had to find it with binoculars! When I listened to other groups of people at lodges or overheard other guides I realized that my opinion of Baraza as an extraordinary guide was confirmed. Other groups were not experiencing as many animals or observing the intimate behaviors we were able to watch. I have been around professional guides at other places (as well as my husband being a professional river guide) and know what it takes to be a good guide. Also, that a great guide can make all the difference in your trip being good and being over-the-top amazing every day, day after day! I was also interested in seeing as many different birds as possible. Once again, Baraza was expert in his knowledge of birds. I took hundreds of various bird photos and he’d even remember if I had taken a photo of a bird we’d seen already or not! Brilliance in guiding as well as driving and negotiating tricky terrain, you couldn’t be in better hands.

"My wife Elizabeth and I just completed a trip to Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti with your guide Baraza. Not only was he a terrific guide with EAGLE EYES, but he was extremely knowledgeable about the animals."

His knowledge of the flora and fauna was exceptional and his personality and friendliness outstanding.

My son and I went on a Safari with Baraza and I must say he was one of the best guides we could have had the pleasure of being with. His knowledge of the flora and fauna was exceptional and his personality and friendliness outstanding. I would highly recommend going on a safari with Baraza! He will give you the best of what the wonderful wild life experience has to offer. Personally I look forward to someday returning to Tanzania and repeating the experience I had with him.
