Our People

Robert John Matandiko

Robert was born and brought up in Mwanza and initially trained as a teacher, before moving to Arusha where he became interested in tourism. He set out in a new direction, initially as a mountain guide.  Having tested his mettle on Kilimanjaro for a year, he then joined the Nomad camp crew where he learned the ins and outs of caring for guests in our remote places.  Eager to develop his skills, Robert put himself through guide college, and was accepted for Nomad guide training in 2007.  Since then, he’s traveled throughout Tanzania and has experience in all the main parks.  He’s now based at Mahale where he is particularly passionate about the primate politics.
