    Wilson Shange

    Safari Guide

    Wilson Shange joined the Duma team in 2013. He is a highly experienced guide with more than 18 years of experience. He has worked with many high profile groups such as National Geographic, BBC, German TV and ABC network. Shange has taken many courses over the years including flora and fauna courses, Wilderness First Responder, ornithology and cross cultural communication.

    Shange is a Maasai from the slopes of Mount Meru. He herded his family's livestock when he was young and was happy when he got the chance to go to school. He lived in what was then a wildlife migration corridor from Arusha National Park to Tarangire and Manyara.

    Shange has climbed Mounts Kilimanjaro and Meru and has visited the Maasai Mara and Amboseli in addition to Tanzania's parks. His favorite park in Tanzania is the Serengeti because it has many different types of wildlife and the ecosystem varies. It is also possible to have a more private safari there as the park is so large.

    Shange's favorite animal is the hyena as it a very successful hunter and can live in a harsh environment. His favorite bird is the Secretary Bird because it kills snakes (most Tanzanians do not like snakes!!)

    The most exciting thing Shange has seen on safari was when an intruder male lion tried to kick the dominant male out of a pride. The females assisted the dominant male in defeating the intruder.

    Client praise for Shange

    "Regarding Babu Shange, he was fantastic! Everything we would have wanted. Very knowledgeable, safety-concious and great driver, but even better guide. Great skill seeing game, but especially making game – i.e. Impalas – interesting that we otherwise would just ignore. Also his book that he had was a great asset. Also very reliable and organized. Highly recommended."

    "And then there was our guide, Shange. He is the person that made our trip so very special. He was an amazing guide and a wonderful person to get to know over the course of the trip."
