We spent 6 days on safari with Kaanaeli in June 2013. What a great experience! Kaanaeli has amazing "bush eyes". His ability to seek out and find African wildlife is matched by his in-depth knowledge of animal life and their behavioural patterns. This combined with his environmental awareness and mechanical knowledge means that you could not be in better hands if you decide to opt for this "fair-trade" tourism experience.

Thank you Kaanaeli, you have given us one of our best holiday experiences. Your organisation, thoughtfulness and companionship will not be forgotten. We wish you, your company and family good luck and success in the future.

In January 2012 we had the pleasure of visiting Tanzania with Kaanaeli Safaris. The trip was very customized to the needs of our group and we were able to see several different lodgings and environments - it really feels like we experienced the entire diversity of Tanzania. Kaanaeli was both very friendly and knowledgeable which made this safari much more than just animal viewing, and we felt connected to Tanzania and its culture in a more personal way for it. After visiting Tanzania for the first time we are sure to return as it has made a great impresion on us and we can very strongly recommend anyone considering an african safari to come to beautiful Tanzania and let Kaanaeli show you his backyard.

We had a wonderful 10 day safari with Kaanaeli in 2012 and cannot recommend it more highly. He has an incredible knowledge of the wildlife and the cultural background in Tanzania. All of the arrangements with various lodges and camps worked perfectly, thanks to his connections. They provided a wide range from luxury accommodations to simple but charming camps. This small and local company provides a real personal touch which is missing in all of the mass produced tours which we ran into. The possibility to arrange a tour which meets your wishes and schedule is a real plus. Please feel free to ask him for our contact address if you need more information.

During our safari in March 2010 I was lucky enough to join a walk just outside the Serengeti National Park which was guided by Kaanaeli. Thanks to his extensive knowledge and friendly character, this hike became the highlight of our trip. We learned so much about the different plants and animals that we saw and thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful environment. Later on I got to know Kaanaeli as a reliable, hard-working person, always in a good mood and looking out for your well-being. If I would do another safari, I would certainly go with Livingstone's Africa!



Rudolph and Marita from Sweden
In November 2009 my wife and I had the opportunity and privilege to meet Mr Kaanaeli Kanuya during our safari in the Serengeti. Kaanaeli proved to be an extraordinary skilled guide with profound knowledge, and with a special feeling and deep respect for nature. He is very service minded, honest and emanates a contiguous enthusiasm. We considered it a lucky chance and a real pleasure to have met him; he gave us a memory for life. Highly recommended! If you may have questions I would be happy to help. Due to widespread spam risk I will not place my email address here so please initially contact me via Livingstone's Africa at

I met Kaanaeli in 2006 while staying at the Ikoma Bush camp where he was working as a guide, since then we have maintained regular contact. I was impressed by his general knowledge of wildlife and his affinity to nature. I also found Kaanaeli's own stories of growing up within a pastoralist Maasai family very interesting. He is friendly and keen to part with his knowledge and makes a real effort to ensure that any needs are catered for. I am more than happy to recommend Kaaneli and would welcome direct contact from anybody thinking of booking with Livingstone's Africa. Please initially contact Livingstone's Africa for my email address.
