Salaash joined the Asilia team 10 years ago as a waiter and very quickly climbed through the ranks to become the incredible guide he is today. He really understands people and always goes the extra mile to create memorable safari experiences, 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. His home is just a few kilometres from the Masai Mara conservancies, where he loves guiding and sharing the incredible diversity of wildlife of the Masai Mara. He has been guiding for 13 years now, eight 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, describing the Masai Mara as a constant classroom. A wonderful host and natural linguist (his French is nearly fluent), he is known for his sense of humour, amazing knowledge and warm personality.
As well as showcasing the incredible flora and fauna of the region, he offers a genuine insight into the Maasai culture and traditions part of his heritage.
