Guide, Local expert, NaturalistHello I’m Henry
I speak: English
Henry Akeyo is a rising star in Tanzanian guiding. Following graduation from Guides College Henry began his career as an apprentice guide in training to The Wild Source Tanzania Managing Director Deo Magoye. Deo has earned acclaim as a mentor and known for producing the best young guides in the country. After three years of field training and the opportunity to shadow guides of The Wild Source Henry went to work for the highly regarded Nasikia Camps, moving around their locations throughout the Serengeti and Tarangire National Parks. In just his first full year (2018) at Nasikia Camps Henry was recognized as their Resident Guide of the Year. An award he won again in his second year (2019). Henry has a contagious enthusiasm for the bush, delighting guests with his laid back style along with the thrills that come with knowing how to find the animals and predict their behavior. Having raised Henry ourselves, we are excited that in 2020 he has returned to The Wild Source where he can fully utilize his skills to deliver the serious wildlife viewing style that we are known for.
