HOW IT ALL STARTED
A few years ago, I decided to travel by myself in Tanzania for a few months. One day, on the beach, I met Leepa, a young maasai men who was selling hand-made jewellery. After a nice conversation, we agreed that I would come back to teach him how to swim. We became friends and I spent some time in his family. This is when I learnt more about the everyday challenges that they are facing and how he has been providing by himself for his whole family of about 20. We were the same age and yet our life story was so different. The family of Leepa is a family of pastoralists, he grew up amongst cow and, by the age of 15, he traveled by himself, by foot with only his kettle for about two years because of a terrible drought, not knowing if he would ever get to see his family as they had moved during that time. That time that he spent alone thought him how to deal with lions, hunger, etc .. and made him to become a very resilient person.
I came back to Tanzania a few times, we kept traveling together and I learnt that he had worked for seven years in tough conditions in a Luxury hotel in the Nyerere National Park (ex. Selous Game Reserve) and that his dream was to become a safari guide to share the beauty of his land and culture with people around the world. I was so impressed by his passion, conviction and kindness that I decided to support him. In the next years, I took the decision to live on a low income and invest everything that I could in his dream and help him open a safari tour company and a small hotel close at the entrance of the biggest conservation area of Africa.
I am proud to tell you that now after 3 years, the dream has come true, Lenguka's Travel is born and Leepa is now ready to share his beauty with travelers. If you ever get the chance to go to Tanzania, please contact us! You will probably get the chance to meet a truly unique and inspiring person and make a real difference for him, his family and his community.
