Guide Bio

About: James Muraguri Gichohi Founder and Director of YHA Kenya Travel.
I have so much passion to unveil the stunning beauty of Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya’s most iconic places- Destinations. The only sure and better way to showcase the countries beauty of our incredible wildlife and tourism products of Africa. I do this by being practically in the industry for over three decades.
After founding YHA Kenya Travel, I got involved directly in traveling to different destinations which opened the door of opportunity to explore my whole vigor in tourism. I handle many clients and I practically offer my whole self to every client from the time they make that call, whatsapp message or the email they drop inquiring about our trip packages to the time of arrival and when saying goodbye to Africa!
I am looking forward to seeing you on one of our adventure trips soon!
