Our Guide, Elibariki Pallango - Eli. I don't know where to start with Eli. What a wonderful man! From the time he met us at Arusha to the time he put us on the Regional Air plane in the Serengeti we could not have asked for a better, more competent person to take care of us. We felt so comfortable with him and being a father of a teenage son himself he knew exactly how to engage the boys…His knowledge was first class and the pride he took in his job was clearly obvious. He has a wicked sense of humor which was enjoyed by all three of us. He organized us well but also accommodated us if we wanted to return to the hotel a little earlier than planned. Jack and Eli developed a great 'working relationship' as Jack was our official photographer and he and Eli would work together to get the best shot! On our last night we invited Eli to join us for a farewell dinner and it was clear that we had all become very good friends - always hard to say good bye to a good friend when you don't know when you will see them again!Read More

Our guides (Hillary Mandia, Davis Matafu and Elibariki Pallango) were again fantastic. All were very knowledgeable and could clearly communicate about the animals, the country and the culture. They were very patient in answering the numerous questions of both the adults and children (6 to 15 years of age).

We never saw a moment of frustration. We became very attached to them. They were family and all of us were sorry to part with them at the Seronera airstrip. They were very competent drivers of our three vehicles.
