Private tour guide Jackson


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 adventurous in Tanzania! In 1995 'I decide 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 a tourism industry ever since and employed by 1, 2, . . hotels and tour companies in Mombassa(Kenya), Arusha, Dar es salaam and Zanzibar before I decide to work as 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 a few lucky ones in the world who touring and meet different people everyday! I already guided a lot of 'important' and famous people. Please, Welcome to see what I see everyday and never get tired to see them, in East Africa we have a saying, Hakuna Matata and Karibu sana east Africa, especially Tanzania and mostly Zanzibar :) !

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