Our Guides & Staff

African Scenic Safaris has recruited a fantastic group of safari & Mt Kilimanjaro guides, cooks and crew. We have taken many steps to ensure we attract, select, motivate and retain the very best guides in Tanzania.

 

How do we do this...

  • We offer attractive salary packages, as well as generous compensation on top of their monthly salary for nights that are spent on safari and away from their family.
  • Our Kilimanjaro head guides, assistant guides, cooks & porters receive the best treatment on the mountain. We ensure they have 3 meals per day, good sleeping arrangements, medical insurance cover and proper salaries.
  • We have a procedure for allowing our staff to take out loans if needed.
  • We organize regular training for our staff to keep their skills and knowledge at the highest possible expectation.
  • As well as training, we have regular staff meetings to focus on customer service and how to provide a more unique experience to our clients.
  • We have a very little turnover of staff. They tell us that they love their jobs and working for African Scenic Safaris. This is apparent to many of our clients, who give feedback saying how passionate our guides and crew are.

 

Our Charity

Path To Africa

www.pathtoafrica.org

 

Path to Africa (PTA) was established in 2007 and aims to give direct help to local small-scale organisations in Moshi town, northern Tanzania.

 

We aim to provide volunteers and donors with a way of accessing and helping local projects without going through a third body, thus ensuring all time and money donated goes directly to the projects intended.

 

Path To Africa works alongside the local project directors to develop and sustain their projects in the short and long term. Currently PTA has committed most of its funds to Hope Village, a small orphanage, which is home to seven young children. This is not your typical orphanage. It is more of a loving family home. Through our joint partnership, we provide these children with access to quality education and a safe living environment.

 

PTA is a small organisation, relying on the invaluable work carried out by our volunteers and the funds received by generous donors. Every cent donated goes towards our continued work in Moshi. Our aim is to assist and initiate projects that are locally based, to give the needed funding and assistance to these projects in the short term, and to assist these projects in becoming economically and organisationally self-sustainable in the long term.

 

By booking with African Scenic Safaris you are indirectly helping us support PTA however additional donations and child sponsors are always needed. Contact us for more information.
