Guide Bio

Hello
I am Joshua Monah
A private guide and a Tour operator. Born and raised in Tanzania, married and have 3 children. I grew in a 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 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 economic perception but as part and parcel of 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.

    My wife had always wanted to go to Africa for a Safari ( photograph Africa’s amazing wildlife); I had been to Northern Africa in the Military and did not particularly want to go.
    We found Josh and his Brother, Ole’ through and old friend. We explained to them what our goals and desires were and they organized the Safaris around us and two other friends. From the time we arrived in Nairobi we were taken such Great care from our Kenyan Safaris to our Tanzanian Safaris. We saw all of the Big Five, watched Lions reproducing, to seeing the many Prides in all their magnificent. We witnessed so many Zebras and Wildebeests that it we almost forgot ( almost) how special their interaction was! Multiple Elephants including their babies was amazing. From seeing the Splendor and Grace of the Giraffes ( we were shown so many ), including the Reticulated, Rothschild and Masai. We were one of the few Safaris that were shown a Leopard ( many groups did not). I know that both Josh and Olé are Masai Warriors and certainly their tracking skills and their fund of knowledge of the Big game, small game and Birds was overwhelming ( in a wonderful way).
    We were over the moon with enjoyment in our enjoyment of these experiences (the list of animals that we saw is impossible to complete in this short review, including the water buffalo, Rhinos and Hippos- who stink!)
    But in addition to daily safaris, we often ended the day out in the bush with some amazing S African wine to celebrate yet another successful adventurous day!
    We were treated as Royalty. One morning on the Serengeti we feasted on Breakfast near our Safari Vehicle as we enjoyed the Wildebeests and Zebras traveling on their merry way! Many Safari Vehicles drove buy and saw us eating this amazing meal and waved! A few of them laughed in amazement and asked how did we pull “this” off!?
    We simply pointed to Josh and Olé and said “ These men ( our guides) did it.
    Little things were done that many of my friends ( including my sister) who had gone on other Safaris before us, said they had not had that or didn’t see that.
    At the end of the holiday when people are tired and heading home, Josh and Olé had arranged everything! Connections ( in the middle of the Serengeti to Nairobi) were flawlessly arranged!
    We had the Trip of a Lifetime and IF Josh and Ole’ were our Guides we would happily go again!
    We not only had the experience of a lifetime, but we made Lifetime Friends (Rafiki = Friend) in Josh and Olé!

    They have elevated Guided Safaris to another Level!

    I grew up in South Africa, now residing in Canada. I took my husband on a safari with Joshua to experience the migration of the wildebeest. Joshua is a professional, attentive and extremely knowledgeable guide. He made our trip fun and an experience of a life time… would love to this this again. We saw so much more than we could ever hoped for. Joshua knows these area like the palm of his hand. What a difference a hood guide can make. .thank you Josh.
