Una experiencia genial. A fantastic safari Hemos estado con MAASAI AFRICAN GUIDES & DMC Ltd. y con Wild Untouched Adventure por Tanzania y ha sido una experiencia fantástica. 13 días con Ronnie y Cosbi con safaris (Serengeti, Sinya, el paso del río Mara, Tarangire, Ngorongoro, lago Manyara, lago Natron...) y otras experiencias inolvidables como la visita a los bosquimanos, los Masai, el mercado local, excursiones en bici y por el río, etc. Ronnie y Cosbi son unos guías geniales que nos han hecho sentir como en casa. Sin duda los recomiendo a todo los que quieran viajar por Tanzania. Nosotros ya tenemos ganas de repetir.

Safari trip with Charles We had great five days with Charles and his team - Goji and Denise. Charles helped us to arrange the tour and booked all the hotels. Everything was great, we saw a lot of animals and had a lot of fun. Charles was always available and responsive, before and during the trip. I highly recommend.

Great Safari with Joel We had Joel as our guide, and he really made sure we had a great experience during our safari. We visited the Ngorogoro crater & Serengeti and were lucky to even catch a lion with her cubs. Unique experience with a great guide that always made us feel safe and answered happily a lot of questions about all the animals, Tanzania and the massai. Highly recommended! Asante sana!

Highly recommended! I had the pleasure of spending a week on Kilimanjaro with the most friendly, supportive and welcoming team imaginable. From arrival to departure, we felt very well taken care of by both the trekking team led by guide Shambani and Charles’ team in Arusha. I highly recommend Maasai African Guides to anyone interested in taking up the challenge of climbing Kilimanjaro or looking to explore the Arusha area.

Charles is the best guide to explorer the safari parks in Tanzania We just return from 8 days adventure in Tanzania, and Charles was our guide. He was incredible, reliable, professional, with fluque English and we enjoyed with him a lot. He did a lot to make us satisfied. In the parks he was amazing find us many amazing animals that we couldn't see without he shows us. As a Massay he leave and breath and respect the wild animals and the nature in Tanzania. Most recommended to visit only with a guide like him that knows every rode every trail, and each creature...

Tarangire Serengeti Ngoro Ngoro safari I had Charles as a guide during a 4 day safari to Tarangire, Serengeti and Ngoro Ngoro and it was the most beautiful experience.Charles has an incredible knowledge about the animals, the nature, the country... He knows the animals so well that we saw all of them, even the Chita who's so difficult to spot sometimes. He not only knows them but he loves them and is very respectful of the surroundings and nature in general.I highly recommend Charles for his kindness, his amazing knowledge, his humour and his patience with the group. Really a wonderful experience!

Charles - amazing guide and person Charles was our driver and guide at our 30th anniversary 10 days trip to Tanzania. He is experienced, reliable, knowledgeable, a pleasant-mannered person, great to have conversations with. A rare combination of a field man and a certified tour guide. Took care of us from the moment we arrived until returning to the airport at the end of the trip. Patiently answered all our questions (and we had a lot...). Charles was highly motivated to find animals and bring us to them up close, to arrive at the right moment to the great Gnu crossing the Mara River and in general to respond to every request we had. Highly recommended😁
