Fredy is just amazing!

“This is absolute and top league for me! Anyone who cares for their customers like Fredy does has gotten for victory. The food is first class, whether in the lodges or under a tree in the great outdoors, where lions and zebras and wildebeest share their homeland. Important to mention is the exceptional multiple for a purely plant-based diet. “

The Ultimate Guide

“We were enchanted by the staff at the camps where we stayed. Their infectious enthusiasm shone brightly every time we were in their company, BUT our guide - Fredy Kissay - brilliantly framed our entire trip. Fredy has a wealth of knowledge of all species in the parks and was extremely patient finding animals we came to see. “

When I am in Tanzania I choose to work with Fredy Kissay of Meet Africa Safari because I recognise that he is an extremely knowledgeable talented guide with a sensitivity to his guests needs. He also has a wealth of experience and local knowledge.“
