At Planet Africa, our selected guides are our pride and joy. We invest substantially in training our guides as astute naturalists, local historians, conservationists, and of course vehicle mechanics. But more importantly, they are just fantastic travel companions. Our clients consistently report that their guide was the highlight of the safari, that they felt they were traveling with a friend who really took their needs into consideration. If you have a request for a specific skill, we will try to match you with the right guide. Your experience with us will be tailored, by you, from start to finish, and your guide will be there with you every step of the way.
Estomih or Esto was born in northern Tanzania in 1962. He has great experience having worked and guided in the bush for over twenty years. After school and further studies, Esto’s dream was to become a professional safari guide. His career kicked of in 1991, working for Paul Oliver at Oliver’s Camp as a waiter before being promoted to camp supervisor. Never losing siight of his dream, much of Esto’s spare time was spent studying wildlife books, whilst also learning from established safari guides.
In 2005, Esto became a camp manager, managing highly successful mobile camps and guiding whenever the opportunity arose. In 2008, after successfully passing the guide exams, Esto moved into full time guiding. He loves nothing more than a good joke and spending time teaching kids about Africa. Like most Tanzanians he also loves football, especially the English Premier League. Esto lives in Arusha and is married with two children.
