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.
