On the 5th of June, the Tanzanian Tour Guide Awards announced their yearly winners. We could not be prouder of Moinga Timan, who was awarded The Tanzanian Guide of the Year Award for 2019! An incredible accomplishment that is a testament to Moi’s passion for wildlife. It is absolutely a well-deserved award that encompasses the dedication and hard work he has put in over the years.
We are extremely proud of Moi and are thrilled to have had the pleasure of working with him since 2015 where he started guiding in Ruaha. He has guided countless guests at Kwihala Camp, Jabali Ridge, as well as Namiri Plains – passing on the knowledge he has learnt as well as sharing many laughs and stories, too. When on safari, your guide is usually the person who makes your journey. They are with you during those incredible wildlife moments, taking you to the right locations and placing you in the right spot to witness Africa’s magic. There is no doubt that sharing such special memories with someone will have you leaving Africa with at least one more lifelong friend.
“No other individuals have the same direct, personal impact on the experience of our guests.” – Tour Guide Awards Tanzania
Hard work, courage, and commitment bring only blessings and success, and Moi is a shining example of this. Pietro Luraschi, our Head Guide Trainer, has worked with Moinga over the last few years and had the following words to say, “I am proud of the guide and the man you are. Step by step you climbed a ladder that at the beginning seemed so long, you fought and inched forward, even when it was hard, always with your honesty leading your actions. All we had to do was giving you the keys to open doors and watching you grow.”
Congratulations, Moinga – you wholeheartedly deserve this award, continue being the exceptional role model you are for our younger generation while doing what you love!
