what Our Clients Are Saying

“I have been on three African Safaris with Antonio Marangabassa as my guide. These trips were organized by the San Diego Zoo and Antonio was specifically chosen to be our guide. The trips varied in length between two and four weeks. We have been to Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Botswana and Uganda with Antonio. These safaris involved the organization of flights, luggage, ground transportation and numerous camps, lodges and hotels. Antonio was also responsible for the organization of several independent trips that my wife and I took prior to the commencement of the scheduled trips and the arrival of the other group members.
Let me just say that in my opinion, Antonio is the most professional and fun loving guide I have ever had. My wife and I have been fortunate enough to travel to all parts of the world. Because of our passion for wildlife and digital photography, 75% of the trips that we take are wildlife oriented. I am a serious amateur photographer and I have successfully entered some my images in international competitions like the San Diego County Fair. Antonio is the kind of kind of guide who understands that kind of passion and is always working to get us the best shot and finding the most unique animals.
But what I really think sets Antonio Marangabassa apart from the other guides is his love for the children of his country. Antonio has always organized special excursions to see schools and to deliver “care packages” of food, clothing and school supplies. can’t tell you how much this means to him and what a good feeling it gave us to have the opportunity to give back to the children of Africa. Antonio also continues to direct several education programs for the children of his beautiful country including the “African Angels Foundation.”
I am thrilled and honored to endorse Antonio Marangabassa as a guide and travel companion. I can only hope to travel on many more occasions with Antonio and I am happy to answer any questions regarding our experiences with him as our guide”

“Tony Marangabassa knows Africa: its land, its history, its animals, and – most important – its people. With Tony, you will embrace Africa with all your senses and with your heart.  My family’s love for East Africa and her people lives on years after our safari with Tony.”

“In addition to his skills as a guide, he is a wonderful story teller and has a very broad knowledge base for educating his clients on all the geographical and historical aspects of this fabulous continent. His daily lectures were always fun and very informative. Antonio does not shy away from the most controversial political issues and he is passionate about his country, its people and its natural resources”.
