Our guides

The Map’s Edge is blessed with having a constellation of what are, quite literally, some of the best guides in Tanzania. Quite a bold statement and we know it!

Your guide is the make or break of your safari, no question. A good guide will head off in the opposite direction to everyone else, to remote corners of the wilderness where a lesser guide would fear to tread; he will thrill and inspire you.

He can read the morning spoor like you can the FT, but above all, he will share with you the passion he has for East Africa, her wildlife, her wilderness areas and her peoples, as diverse as the land they live in.

You will leave as friends, already throwing around ideas for the next time. You will be saving for your next adventure the very instant you get back home. It will become a lifetime love affair with a place often wrongly miscast as ‘The Dark Continent’ – one alive with colour and beauty, with the space to which, in our busy modern lives, we yearn to escape.

To be a Map’s Edge guide, sure, you have to have a phenomenal amount of wildlife knowledge and this comes as standard, but we believe this isn’t everything. A good guide takes you on a journey where you learn about the insanely brilliant engineering of a termite mound; the best place to sip a G&T while the sun goes down; and the iridescence on a sunbird’s wing.

Guiding is about all of this.  But most of all, it’s about having fun in the bush.
