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.

Harry Lucas

Harry is one of our longest serving guides. He has worked in some of the more remote parks in Tanzania including Selous, where he became confident taking safaris on foot, in a boat as well as by vehicle. He is one of the few guides to have observed painted hunting dogs extensively and he also has a coveted daylight sighting of an Aardvark under his belt. Harry has one son and is particularly good with children on safari. He is also a very good footballer, but is probably too modest to tell you how high in the Tanzanian league he and his brother reached...!
