  •  About Best Safaris

     

     

    Africa is a continent like no other with its pristine landscapes and abundance of wildlife and no other destination can inspire such a sense of wonder and joy. It is a mysterious place that will touch your heart and leave you with a new understanding of the natural rhythm.

     

    My life is rooted in the continent of Africa. I was born in Kisumu, then a small town on the shores of Lake Victoria.

     

    My father, an immigrant from India, was employed by the Kenya Railways as engine driver. Although I was born in Kisumu, my early childhood, as I recollect, was spent in a small Masai town of Kajiado, located half way between Nairobi and the Tanzania border town of Namanga.

     

    A rail terminal point, Kajiado played an important part in the history of British Kenya as an important railway post in the early colonial days for export of soda ash to England.

    When I was 6 years old,  my father would take me with him as he operated the train from Kajiado to the shores of Lake Magadi, a source of soda ash which would be loaded on rail wagons and sent to the seaport of Mombasa. My first views of the wildlife were from the cab of the wood burning rail engine. Every journey with my father was a learning experience as I looked out of the train engine and wondered about the Masai youth grazing their cattle and sheep on the almost empty plains dotted by acacia trees.

     

    On some journeys, I would see a herd of zebras or elephants pass by, watch giraffes majestically roam the grasslands. Even from our little railway house, I could many times hear the roars and sounds of the animals in the distance. With these memories still fresh in me, parents moved to Nairobi where I went to school.  During school holidays, ample opportunities came my way to accompany my father on his train outings and watch the ever changing scenery as the train passed through rolling pains and hills, passing by hundreds of small bomas (villages), dukas (small shops) and shambas (farms). Standing along each station and rail tracks, young children would wave.

     

    After high school, I worked with the Public works department of the Kenya Government and part of my duties included visiting remote camps to pay monthly wages to the department employees. Each assignment provided me with newer opportunities to travel. During this period of over 5 years, my work and my passion for travel took me across from Wajir in the northern Kenya to the Ruwenzori Mountains in the western Uganda, from Mombasa to Kisumu and from Dar es Salaam to the shores of Lake Kivu in Rwanda

     

    During the past 25 years, I have been actively engaged in arranging safari’s to Africa and each journey we have offered to thousand of visitors to Africa has reflected my passion and love for the continent which is like no other. No where else one can see the tapestry of people, faces, nature, mountains all blend together to make Africa what is.

     

    With combined experience of over 50 years, my team of professions safari experts and I have put our experience and passion in making an African safari a journey of life time.

    Yours truly,
