Promise, Kiba Point Selous

Promise has spent most of his life in the bush. His earliest memories are of him as a young child, sleeping in a hut under a lion skin blanket killed by his grandfather – a treasured piece he still has, albeit a little moth eaten and ragged. At age 17, Promise was picked out of a classroom of eager pupils to attend a guiding school on a scholarship for a year in Dar esalaam. He graduated and passed the highest in the class, so following in his grandfather’s footsteps, he got his first job working as a safari guide in the Selous.

After 3 years of being a guide and accumulating a lot of knowledge, he decided he wanted to be closer to his family, who’s village sits at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro. He quickly found a job as a guide/ porter taking guests (mostly their luggage) up Kilimanjaro. He boasts climbing Kilimanjaro over 30 times!

Missing the bush and tired of wobbly legs he returned to his passion, guiding, and worked in the Serengeti as a top guide for three years teaching himself photography along the way. He missed the quietness and calm of the Selous and all its diversity and wanted to come back so in 2017 he joined Nomad and became the manager and guide of Kiba Point.
