Steven Ngowi, Jr. The official start of Steve’s professional career as a safari guide began when he completed guide school in Arusha, internships & training with Tanapa in Central Serengeti & Asilia Africa. However, it truly began more than 20 years ago while guiding the British photographers & sharing cultures for the first time with his grandfather. He has been in training to be a safari guide for his entire life. During his formal career, Steve is one of the few guides to achieve the walking guide qualification with Asilia, which requires least 18 months & specialized training in the use of firearms & over 120 hours of experience in the field. Having a qualified safari walking guide adds something extra to the experience for our guests. Steve continues to study & broaden his knowledge about African wildlife every day & is always working towards the next discovery. He will be speaking at events in the U.S. in 2022 about Tanzanian wildlife & culture.
