Abel Kimani Founder and Managing Director of Alaitol Safaris, I was born and raised in a Maasai village on the slopes of volcanic Mount Meru in Arusha, Tanzania. My passion is about wildlife and eager to share the beauty of my country and its people. My enthusiasm led me to the College of African Wildlife Management, Mweka where I received my Bachelor Degree in Wildlife and Tourism Management. After gaining education, I was continued to hone my skills and develop exceptional knowledge of the field by working as a researcher and safari guide. My experience includes guiding more than 50 trips to the summit of famed Mount Kilimanjaro, conducting wildlife research with the U.S.-based Wildlife Conservation Society, and working as a safari guide for highly-rated properties in the Serengeti. In 2015, I made the choice to start my own tour company in Tanzania, as my personal Eden. l regarded by many tour companies as one of the best professional tour guide in Tanzania.

Let Alaitol Safaris take you beneath the surface, deep into the heart of Tanzania, the magical country waiting to share with you its best secrets and its biggest adventures. We are Tanzanian, we know Tanzania. Not just the sights, but the culture, the people. As your friend in Tanzania, We will take you there, fulfilling your wishes and realising your dreams.
