Our People

Philip Pendaeli

Philip is from Momella near Arusha National Park and he joined Nomad early in his career, initially as a waiter, in 2004.  While working in Sand Rivers Selous, he developed a passionate interest in the wildlife and environment around him and began to study.  After jumping the usual rigorous training hurdles, he initially joined the guiding team in Sand Rivers, moving on later to Katavi, Mahale, and then Lamai.  Having gathered a significant amount of experience across so many Tanzanian parks, he made the natural progression to become a Nomad northern guide in 2012.  

Philip is a real bush-lad and particularly loves his birds.  He also grew very fond of the elephant family in Chada, amazing everyone with his apparent ability to communicate with them.  He is married to a lovely lass (who has also been part of the Nomad family!) and they have two children.
