Who are Usambara Adventures

My name is Said Salim (Director of Usambara Adventures), I was born and raised in the Kondoa district, Dodoma Region of Tanzania. Raised as part of a large family including brothers and sisters, we moved to the Usambara Mountains when I was still very young as we loved everything about the Usambara Region.

My tourism journey began after finishing my primary (seven years) and Secondary Schooling (six years), I decided to study Tourism at the well known Arusha tourism school, then the Ngorongoro Tourism Institute with a special focus in Botany, Mammology, Herpetology, Ornithology, and Entomology. I am fluent in Kiswahili, also speak English and German. I have been working as a tour guide and tour organizer since 2003 and absolutely love helping others discover the country that I love so much Tanzania.

How we work

My local upbringing, strong educational background as well as my self-study in local history allow me to offer you in-depth and well rounded insight into all that Tanzania has to offer; the beautiful nature, the fascinating history as well allowing me to introduce you to local children who I believe are the future of Tanzania.

I particularly enjoy offering tourists the opportunity to combine several types of experiences into one unforgettable vacation. My strong organizational skills allow me to plan (with your desires being my only priority) everything from when you arrive in Tanzania to when you leave including airport pick-up and drop off, all transfers, lodging, meals (BLD) and my local connections often allow me to do so for FAR LESS than if you were to try to book all these exciting adventures on your own.

It is my pleasure to answer any questions that you have. Please don't hesitate to contact me by clicking here regardless of where you are in the planning process.
