Wilson Bagira – Managing Director of Africa Sasa
Tanzania has a lot to offer in the tourism industry in terms of attractions steered by a stable political atmosphere. This assures me that we are capable of offering better services to our esteemed customers. The government is improving the infrastructure to all touristic destinations in Tanzania. Also, there is a wide variety of accommodation facilities that are available throughout the country that meet the required standards, and world class International Airports with carriers landing in Tanzania on a daily basis.
On safari we use 4WD safari special vehicles equipped with 2 way high frequency radios for communication, driven by a knowledgeable tour-guide. We do not pretend to be a commercial entity. We are the real thing with real people that know this land intimately, love what they are doing, and are extremely excited to share it with you.
We are much more than just a tour company. We are able to provide a far better and unique African experience, because we treat each safari as a personal journey, and we WILL become friends! As a Tanzanian, I am committed to promote Tanzania as one of the world’s leading tourist destinations. As the Managing Director of Africa Sasa, I am also committed to making sure that every safari participant has an outstanding trip with Africa Sasa. I have a long history of working to bring people to Africa’s wonderful, unique and amazing places, so your trip will be safe, smooth, and will introduce you to diverse cultures, wildlife, and some of the most incredible scenery in the world.
I once again welcome you to Tanzania and Africa; we will take you to “Africa…the best place to be” – Wilson Bagira.
