Alexander was born in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro in the Marangu District
of Tanzania. Born into a large family, he began contributing to the household
at an early age helping on the family farm. Being so close to the gateway
to the “Roof of Africa”, he could not help being fascinated
by the many tourists that passed his home.
After completing his secondary education, he decided to further his studies in tour guiding and wildlife interpretation. Upon completing his degree, he began working as a safari guide. His many years of experience as a guide in the Serengeti have brought him to see amazing things with his clients. Among the many hunts he has watched, the one that sticks in his mind was the poor fate of a wildebeest that, in an effort to escape a hyena, ran straight into a pride of 12 lions!
Alexander enjoys the Serengeti the most out of all the parks in Tanzania and Kenya because of its size and the wide variety of flora and fauna that can be easily seen. He feels that there is always something interesting to see on every game drive. Each day in the Serengeti is always filled with unexpected wonders. He particularly enjoys exploring the Northern Serengeti during the dry season and the Eastern Serengeti during the green season.
His favorite animal is the Dik Dik, which is the smallest antelope in Africa. He likes the Dik Dik because it remains with its mate for life and when the mate dies, it remains solitary, not seeking a new mate. Alex’s favourite bird is the grey crested crane, both because of its beauty and because of its interesting mating rituals. Alex spends his spare time reading, playing darts and listing to country music. He shares these hobbies with his wife and four children.
