Our Vision

At Adumu Safaris, we strive to lead tourism reform in East Africa while providing the most breathtaking and memorable holidays for travelers. As our guests fall in love with East Africa, we endeavor to connect them with opportunities to give back to our naturally and culturally abundant region through conservation efforts, volunteering in local communities, and research that increases our knowledge of wildlife.

Our Mission

At Adumu Safaris, we are dedicated to ensuring that your safari creates cross-cultural awareness and understanding, contributes to the economic uplift and self-determination of East African people, and upholds international standards of ecotourism. Our big goal is to return land to the Maasai people and encourage their traditional ways of sustainable coexistence with wildlife while providing and promoting responsible travel in the region.

The Founders

Adumu Safaris was founded by wildlife biologist, David Ole Ngoseck, and his wife Danielle, a college professor.

David, a proud Tanzanian and Maasai who grew up in the small village of Lengijave amidst the splendor of Tanzania’s game parks and conservation areas, began leading safari tours and Kilimanjaro treks at the age of 21. His love of the outdoors and the splendor of the region he is proud to call home inspired him to pursue the study of wildlife at Mweka Wildlife College in Tanzania and continue his studies of wildlife and tourism in the United States. David’s years of experience leading tours coupled with his expert training as a naturalist and his proud connection to the Maasai people instill in him a deep passion and dedication to connect travelers with the magnificence of East Africa and its many treasures in a socially responsible way that uplifts his people and others in the region.

Danielle, a scholar of Black culture, first encountered East Africa while studying in Kenya and immediately fell in love with the warm hospitable people, the vibrant cultures, the varied natural terrain, the unique and delicious cuisine, and the incredible wildlife of the region. She returned amidst her studies to live and work at a feminist activist organization in Tanzania, at which point she had the fortune of venturing on her first life-changing wildlife safari. Her years of researching and writing on cultural aspects of the Black Diaspora fused with her desire to spend more time in East Africa, her hobby of the culinary arts, and her passion for hospitality inspired her to collaborate with her husband to create an African tour company that conveys the unforgettable magic of the region which charmed her so from the start.

Together, David’s local perspective, training as expert naturalist, and schooling in sustainable tourism and Danielle’s tourist’s perspective, expert devotion to black cultures, and social justice background create an impassioned vision for Adumu Safaris that involves showing you the very best of East Africa’s wildlife, landscapes, people, and culture in a way that gives back to the host community and more than fulfills your wildest dreams.
