Salaash joined the Asilia team ten years ago as a waiter but very quickly climbed through the ranks to become the incredible guide he is today. He really understands people and will always go the extra mile to create success after success, hence the huge demand for him with our repeat guests. Salaash always had a love for nature growing up, so becoming a safari guide was the culmination of a lifelong dream for him. His home is just a few kilometres from the Masai Mara conservancies and he loves guiding here and sharing the incredible diversity of wildlife of the Masai Mara. He has been guiding for 13 years now, 8 of which have been based at the Mara Bush Houses in the Mara North Conservancy.
Salaash is a Bronze Level guide, and loves that he is always learning something new – the Masai Mara is a constant classroom, he says. A wonderful host and natural linguist, his French is almost fluent, he is known for his sense of humour, amazing knowledge, and warm personality.
As well as showcasing the incredible flora and fauna of this region, he can offer a genuine insight into Maasai culture and traditions which are part of his heritage.
