In Swahili, the word “fundi” means an expert, specialist, and craftsman – and in this context we intend it to describe members of our team who add an extra dose of magic to your safari as they accompany you around Kenya or Tanzania. Each one is highly qualified and experienced, acting as a host, photographer, and storyteller as well as your safari guide. On top of this, they’ll ensure your transfers are hassle-free, show you their favourite spots in a national park, and entertain you with unforgettable safari stories at meal times and around the campfire in the evenings.
All of our Safari Fundis are available on request and subject to their availability – as you would expect, they are under great demand, so we recommend booking well in advance.
Asilia Safari Fundis all have a permanent base, but can guide anywhere around the country they live and work in. Cross-border options (e.g. to have your Kenya safari fundi accompany you into Tanzania) are generally possible but require additional time to gain relevant permissions, and if visa or permit costs are incurred, these will be added to the costs for hiring a safari fundi.
