Private tour guide Jackson

Jackson M.

Zanzibar, Tanzania

Jambo! They call me 'Maalim Jackson' which means Teacher Jackson (in Arabic/Swahili).

I am happy with it because I always feel like I am teaching while learning something new from tourist about Safari's animals or Spices, herbs or mentioning different types of dolphins we have, or telling a Slave's history or showing around my growing city of Dar es salaam, or while walking around Zanzibar Stone town fables, or touring of some Islands etc, etc! Oh! A lot of adventures in Tanzania! In 1995 I decided to came back home from the 'West' where I lived in Europe from where I got to travel and see the world. I launched in the tourism industry ever since and was employed by different hotels and tour companies in Mombassa(Kenya), Arusha, Dar es salaam and Zanzibar before I decided to work as a freelance tour guide. I usually work for tour Companies of Zanzibar and handle for some oversees tour Operators client. I love guiding! As I use to say to myself, I am among the few lucky ones in the world who tour and meet different people everyday! Please, welcome and as we say in my country: Hakuna Matata and Karibu Sana!

NOTE:Hakuna Matata = No proplems
Karibu Sana = Most welcome
Jambo = Hello!

A Recent Review of this guide

We thought Jackson was excellent in every way, including adjusting the tour to my wife's slow walking. We recommend him without hesitation and would book him again if we ever return to Zanzibar.
