John Urio

Safari Guide

John Urio

John has been part of the Tanzania-Experience team since 2008 and is valued by colleagues and guests for his many years of experience and kind character. He fell in love with the idea of being a safari guide on a school trip to Lake Manyara many years ago. Starting off as a mechanic, he soon added safari guiding to his skills set and embarked on his dream career. John shares a fascination and love for big cats with many of his guests, always scouting for lions when on safari. Hiking in the Usambara Mountains is another of his favourite activities while out and about with his guests. A family man and nature lover that he is, he makes sure his three children grow up appreciating Tanzania’s wildlife and natural heritage.

What our guests say about John:

“Our Guide John is a very attentive and prudent driver while at the same time spotting wildlife and beautiful birds along the way. It was rainy season, very wet and thus difficult to manoeuvre the vehicle along the roads, but John mastered the challenge perfectly.” Hanne and Hugo from Germany

“Our guide, John, was knowledgeable, patient, as well as a sharp animal spotter. Everything about our day was perfect – thank you for a wonderful memory!” JD from the US

“Ahsante sana Little John and Daniel! You made our trip unforgettable. You became good friends, you know more than our books and you drive very well.” Jacqueline von Arx from Switzerland
