Our Guides

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.

Fadhili Mtoro


“Fazo” began working for Sokwe in 1993 as a mechanic, before working his way up to workshop manager. In 2006, tired of checking and fixing safari vehicles, Fazo decided he wanted to experience some of the excitement that many of the guides talked about – the incredible wildlife, meeting different people from all over the world and showing them Tanzania.

Fazo wasted no time: he completed a guiding course and began driving for professional guides. When Fazo takes you on safari, it soon becomes obvious that he is a people person. It is never a surprise to see him helping out the waiters and staff in whatever camp you stay in. Fazo is married and has two children. His favourite thing in the bush is watching the wildebeest migration, especially when they are crossing the Mara River. Fazo speaks English and Swahili. He is also a very good volleyball player.
