Arnold Swai

Arnold Swai is a Tanzanian born and a child of a safari coordinator and planner (his mom), a nephew to great guides of the Northern Tanzania in 80’s and 90’s, in which he spend alot of childhood growing around them, while going out in the bush with them when opportunities present themselves. He grew up around the base of the two great volcanic peaks in Africa, both the slopes Mountain Meru and Kilimanjaro have been his playing grounds and home to him. These are areas where birds, primates, and small forest antelopes were of amazing diversity and here is where his love and passion for nature was born. Arnold later pursues his education in other parts of Tanzania and Kenya before he graduated with a College degree in Wildlife Management in Tanzania. Arnold is a qualified pro-field guide under FGASA (Field Guide Association of Southern Africa) syllabus, a Wilderness First Aid Responder through WMA (Wilderness Medical Associates International). About a decade Arnold has been exploring the diverse habitats of East Africa both on foot and on drives. Being born in Africa Arnold has a broad understanding of African cultures, history and a deep knowledge and interest on both African flora and fauna. Anything flying, walking, crawling or flowering will make him super excited in the bush. Still the moments at the fire place after the sunset have been his favourites when he has talk about Africa and its beautiful night sky.
