Based upon a recommendation from two sets of dear friends who have both traveled with Joshua Monah, we hired Joash Africa Wilderness Insight Limited ("JAfrica") for our Serengeti safari and could not be more pleased with our choice or experience for a number of reasons, including Joshua's: - KNOWLEDGE: His intelligence about the park and animals is extraordinary, and he has a "sixth sense" on where and when to find them, even the most elusive! He knew the answer to every question we asked him about the animals and we -- both the teens and the adults in our group -- learned more than we ever could have imagined. This was my 4th African safari and by far my most favorite! - GEAR: JAfrica's safari vehicle is very comfortable and it outfitted with everything one could need, including a charging station, guide books, a cooler of cold drinks, and so much more. Joshua's camera was far better than our own and he helped us to capture images on a memory card he gave to us that we will treasure forever. - AUTHENTICITY: At our request, he helped us to plan a safari that was a true Tanzanian experience; other operators who proposed itineraries seemed to pitch only the properties with surface-level gloss; Joshua had recommendations that were lesser known gems; just what we were looking for but could not have found without him! - HOSPITALITY: Joshua went above and beyond to ensure that we were taken care of at every step of our time in Tanzania -- from the moment we landed at the Kilimanjaro airport until the moment we left to return home. And we knew that, in Joshua's very capable hands, we were not only safe but that every detail of our journey and adventures had been thoughtfully and thoroughly attended to, both in advance and in the moment. - FLEXIBILITY: When our arrival in Tanzania was nearly 3 days delayed due to an unexpected delay in our COVID test results, the itinerary we'd planned so carefully with Joshua was affected. But Joshua jumped in to the rescue. While we were (finally!) en route to JRO from the US, he made dozens of calls to properties and local airlines on our behalf to help us modify our plans and make up for the time we had lost. We could never have accomplished this without JAfrica; it required a trusted partner on the ground with established and mutually respectful business relationships, who was fluent in Swahili, and who was looking out for our best interests. - TEAM: Joshua is amazing, and his team is also. This includes his business partner and brother, Moses, who took very good care of us pre-safari. His team member, Richard, served as our excellent driver and guide in Karatu post-safari. Everyone on the JAfrica team is top notch. - FRIENDSHIP: It was impossible not to become fast friends with Joshua immediately and, over the course of our time together, he became a dear friend. If any or all of the above are important to you when hiring a guide in Tanzania, I highly recommend hiring Joshua and his company. You will be in the best of hands and will not regret it.

Joshua with Joash was referred to us and he responded to our requests promptly and with thorough questions to help guide us as we planned our safari adventures. He immediately gave us a sense we were in great hands. We spent two nights in Tarangire and four in the Serengeti. His quotes were thorough and straightforward. We worked together on budget and landed on magnificent safari tented lodging. His knowledge of the terrain and the animals and their behaviors provided us with an extraordinary experience. We can say it was extraordinary as we "compared" our sightings and activities with friends and family who have been on safari before and they were all in awe of how many sightings we had throughout our travels. The only animal we did not see was the black rhino and that's because we didn't go to the Ngorogoro Crater. Otherwise, we saw them all and up close and enjoyed lingering, unforgettable moments with the elephants, lions and even cheetas and hippos and so much more. He also knew so much about the birds which were stunning and he knew where and when to go for sightings and migration activity. I felt like we were always more than a step ahead of the other travelers. We had so many sightings alone! Joshua is kind, respectful, funny, curious, spontaneous, smart and a friendly, knowledgeable guide. I will recommend Joash Africa Wilderness Insight to anyone and everyone I know that is going to Tanzania for a safari. They are the best!

My daughter and I met up with a friend and her son in Arusha, Tanzania to go on our first safari. Joshua Monah coordinated all of it for us, covering all details, changes and the requests of our group. His knowledge of the town, the conservation and national parks and the flora and fauna were beyond compare. His generosity, kindness and love for his work shows. All of our encounters with local businesses, shops, park personnel and those at our accommodations were so pleasant because of Joshua's warmth, professionalism, and his historical knowledge. It is clear that he is well respected. This trip was well planned and flexible to changes - we had wonderful accommodations, great food and interactions. And the safari itself was fantastic - we saw it all - the black rhino, the big cats, the hippos, elephants, giraffes, wildebeests, baboons, monkeys, hundreds of bird - and Joshua could name every bird before we checked the books! He was never wrong! This company knows the habitats, habits of the animals and the history of the region. He is a native of Tanzania, NOLS trained and is able to provide information about the culture, geography, animals, history and so much more. If and when the other members of my family get to go on Safari or visit Tanzania (or when I return) this is the only guide I'd consider.

Joshua is a Maasai, a trained wildlife biologist and behavioralist, National Outdoor Leadership School alum and one heck of an amazing guide for our 8 day trek with him June/July 2019. We love birding, but clueless as to what we were seeing. Joshua could tell us within seconds what birds we were seeing, look it up one of his many bird books and go into as great of detail as we wanted about the migration, habitat and perhaps a story or two for our entertainment. He was so respectful of the animals, and would often avoid the masses and take us to places that few knew about so we could have very private animal viewing experiences. We saw other guides who were playing on their phones while their guests were watching a jaguar and her cub play. They asked to borrow our binoculars because their hired 'guide' didn't have any for them to use. Be careful on what companies you use. Better to go with Joshua who will create a custom trip for you on whatever you want to see and do and will make sure you have an amazing trip.

Olé & Josh use their vast knowledge & skills amassed from growing up in in Tanzania & previously working for Safari Companies and their own connections in both these other companies & in their own considerable connections in both East Africa and throughout Southwest and South Africa! Having both formal education at the college & University level, and they are both Masai Warriors on top of all that! Their ability to navigate with amazingly prepared vehicles into The Ngorongoro to find not only beautiful Elephants, Giraffes, Cheetahs,Gazelles and their young, but watching the Great migration in various settings from dawn to dusk is something that my wife and I shall never forget! It was the trip of a lifetime! In the Serengeti we had a most wonderful breakfast surrounded by Wildebeests & Zebrasunder a Beautiful Acacia Tree! Unbelievable, and yet it happened! When no one could find the elusive Leopard, Josh and Olé tracked a morning kill/ carcass in a tree. Later, that afternoon, they found the Leopard resting in a nearby tree that we were not only able to photograph her, but photo her quite close! From Hippos to crocodiles, Topi’s, Oryxes, Warthogs, Rhinos, and the King of the Beasts, the Lion and many Prides, including a mating!It has almost been too much for us to take all this wondrous experience in! From the time we were met by Olé at the Nairobi Airport to taking us to the Boma hotel, to the Sweetwater Campsite where we began seeing these magnificent animals and birds. We experienced first class treatment, fantastic food and wonderful support staff whose only goal was our well being and comfort in the middle of Kenya, Ansil Samburu, Ngorongoro (Ndutu) Conservation Area along with Mgubani Camps at both Ndutu and the Serengeti. I am amazed at how much planning and work must have gone into this by Olé and Josh. Glitches happen all the time during a 14 day evolution, but if any problems occurred, I do not know about it, as Josh & Olé took care of it. Our ‘ side trip’ into a Masai Village was simply icing on a wonderful tasty cake! A Special surpthat was a memory for the ages and will NEVER be forgotten! So, if you want to go on a fantastic Safari to see sites and the animals that you have only dreamed about or seen in documentaries, utube or movies, get connected with Olé and Josh at Joash Africa Wilderness Insight Ltd.; they will take care of you, treat you as Family and show you Their Africa, the Africa you want to see. The Africa that my wife and I wanted to see. You will not regret it!!
