Naiman Mungare, a graduate of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS), has been leading wildlife safaris for nearly two decades. Whether strolling among riverine forests in search of rare birds or navigating his way across the short grass plains of the Serengeti, Naiman has a sense of what makes a great safari experience and ensures that all his guests leave Tanzania with a new insight into the wonders of his native country. His quiet personality and depth of knowledge make him one of our most likeable guides. Naiman is married and has three daughters and one son. When not on safari, he enjoys looking after his farm in Babati, northeast of Arusha.
There simply could not have been a better guide. Funny, witty, smart, patient, clever, knowledgeable, caring, gentle, honest, and willing to learn. I can't imagine any guide handling our diverse group as well as he did. He's the epitome of excellence!
