Tanzania is our home

Karibu (welcome)! We will be happy to show you around in our beautiful country.

The power of different cultures 

Makasa is us, and we are Makasa: Selma Kamm-Melai, originally from the Netherlands, and Yohannes Ngomi Kamm, born and raised in Tanzania. The combination of our different cultures and backgrounds is quite unique. In any event, it adds to a very valuable experience for our travellers. Ngomi knows the country, he knows the Tanzanian people and he will introduce you to the finest that East Africa has to offer. With her European background, Selma has a special knack for planning and organizing, but most of all, she is in tune with the needs and wishes of westerners. 

From the foothills of Kilimanjaro we will organize the entire tour package of your choice

We live in Tanzania ourselves and we do not engage the services of any intermediaries. We conduct all of our tours ourselves, using our own vehicles and with the assistance of experienced guides. We are deeply committed to contributing to Tanzania’s society, and we honour this commitment by cooperating closely with the local population and by including local projects and small-scale lodges in our itinerary suggestions. This approach ensures that you will get the real experience of what life in Tanzania is like while at the same time, we have the shared opportunity to give back to the community.

I can't recommend Makasa enough. Selma organized the whole trip perfectly including a few days in Zanzibar after the Safari experience. Fantastic experience. Selma and her husband even came to meet us on our first morning. A nice personal touch we thought.

Trip of a lifetime
Makasa organized a beautiful safari for our family group of 6 (ranging in age from 25-75). Selma was responsive and flexible during the planning process, attending to every detail. We feel that we got excellent value, from the minute we arrived in Tanzania everything went very smoothly.

Beyond perfect!
Makasa! Reliable, more than flexible, professional, passionate and experienced are our words to subscribe Makasa. Contact prior to our holiday was good, quick and open for our own wishes which gave us the confidence to proceed. We are Makasa most grateful for the great experience!

I had a good communication with Makasa to discuss the proposal and make modifications and the administration went very smoothly.The Makasa guide we got was perfect. The lodges Makasa planned were fine, most were above our requirements. Thanks again!

This is where our customer service and accounts department is located and it is the home base of our vehicles. We have a permanent group of guides – the public face of our company. They will be your hosts during your journey. Furthermore, Selma is responsible for the organization of the trips, and Ngomi is responsible for the guides, the vehicles, and the local contacts.

Have you seen our vlogs yet?

Selma has recently taken up a new hobby that you may find interesting, as she shoots footage to show you around our life in Tanzania – at home, at the office, and on safari. At times, she will give the camera to one of the guides to take it on their trip, or she will involve her own children. Enjoy her vlogs!
