The guides

Highly skilled Maasai guides and drivers

One of the most important things when it comes to a successful safari is to have good guides. At Oltepesi, we have a very strong team, including John, Amos, Elvis, James, Jackson, Shadrack, Alex, Mike, Johnmark, George, Dominic, and Dennis.

Our guides understand what it means to deal with both amateur and professional, demanding, wildlife photographers. They will always work hard to give you the best opportunities to get the best possible shots, whether it is from inside the car, from the ground, or on foot – from the early mornings to the late evenings. They are exceptionally skilled in finding animals, reading the situation, predicting what will happen next and positioning the vehicle optimally for photography.

All the guides’ mother tongue is Maasai (Maa), and they speak Swahili and English fluently.
