Meet a Local Expert | Suju Mollel, Tanzania

3 mins read

Suju is a native from Arusha and a descendant of the Maasai tribe in Tanzania. He finished the Tropical Institute for tourism in Arusha, Tanzania and has been slowly making his way up to a real licensed tour guide.  Today he is well respected among his peers, as he worked his way up from being a porter on Kilimanjaro, then he was allowed to pass the license to become an assistant guide on Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru.

He has hosted many guests on their experiences in Tanzania, which range from mountain climbing to the top of Africa – Kilimanjaro, to the wilderness safaris, which people come to see from all over the world. The qualifications of Suju Mollel don’t end here. He is also trained as a First Aid Responder and is licensed by the Tanzania Park Authority. So even if you are not on a tour with him, you might just end up with him, if your life will need to be saved.

“I am able to offer personally guided safaris in a custom built game viewing vehicle to a vast array of stunning wildlife locations across East Africa. I can help with you to design an itinerary that caters to your specific wildlife and photography interests as well as your duration and budget. Some of my popular trips include witnessing the spectacular Wildebeest migration in the famous and well documented Serengeti National park in Tanzania (Also the location of many BBC Natural history productions) and where you also have the opportunity to spend time in the company of the magnificent big cats and also other equally fascinating endemic mammal and bird life. Alternatively, (or combined with the Serengeti) visit locations in either Tanzania, Rwanda, Kenya and Uganda. With my intimate experience of these areas and in-depth knowledge of the endemic wildlife, I will ensure you have the safari of a lifetime with memories that will last forever”

Suju is a tourism professional, who cares about the development of his community and part of his tour is also intended for teaching the visitors about the wildlife of Tanzania, about the behaviour of different species and about conservation of the natural environment, which forms his everyday office.

If you want to have an authentic experience with a positive and always smiling guide, then Suju is the right guide for you. After learning on the Hakuna Matata and go “pole pole”, you will see, that you will take home from Tanzania much more than just great memories. You will go home knowing, that you have a real “Rafiki” on the other side of the world.

ABOUT | Green Microphone

Tourist guides are cultural brokers, sustainability communicators, unforgettable experience creators, educators and ambassadors of sustainable tourism for all. Up until now, such tourist guides have been doing their best, to be the voice of responsible tourism, but have never had the chance, to be rewarded with an international award for all the great work that they do. That is why G-Guides decided to give them a chance, to present their work. On September 27th 2019, on World Tourism Day, we shall award the Green Microphone Award, to the best voice of responsible tourism.

If you think you are that voice, you can enter into the contest by sending us your short bio and a 250-word description on why you should be awarded the Green Microphone Award and how you are helping to promote responsible tourism. Also if you have had an experience of a guide that was along that line, do nominate them for the award. We want the stories of tourist guides, who are transforming people’s lives through their guidance, to be heard.

Please send nominations and applications on
