I am Joshua Monah
A private guide and a Tour operator. Born and raised in Tanzania, married and have 3 children. I grew in the village where livestock is our pride of wealth. Both my parents and grandparents were livestock herders. Passion for animals both wild and livestock is inside me.
Going out in the wilderness herding cows I encountered variable kinds of wildlife that I was trained in my childhood to go about them in encounter in the wild. After my elementary school, I joined secondary school where I got the basics of wildlife studies from biology and agriculture where we had soil science. After my secondary schools, I took wildlife studies which gave me insights into behaviour to the wildlife encountered in my childhood. I love to see wildlife and learn directly from them by observing their behaviour. Guiding is not only a job to me but an everlasting wildlife study and exposure.
I thought of establishing a safari company that would love to see modern tourism with sustainable conservation of nature and natural resources. I always try to view tourism not only in economy perception but part and parcel to Eco-tourism. If we should keep holding hands together in conserving our wildlife and their native environment could exist for many centuries.
Since I started guiding I have done uncountable safaris and each has a genuine touch. Children would have a learning experience about the culture from the local tribes and wildlife in a different part of the world.
