Kalama Wildlife and Photographic Safaris is the best! David has an uncanny talent for locating the best views of animals and scenery. His deep knowledge of the wildlife, terrain, culture and photography gives each and every one of the participants an opportunity to explore and record this part of the world. He showed us so much – the big five for sure, but also many others. We also got over 100 different species of birds. And he knew everyone!! Now every time I see an adventure story on TV, I get to relive the joy and excitement of my own adventure. Do it people and ask for David.
David Kalama is simply the best safari leader ever! I have been traveling for many years and have many tours under my belt. I can honestly say that David is extraordinary in that role. He is caring and conscientious in every way and makes sure his clients receive the best experience possible. If you have special needs or requests, he will cater to them. He has an infectious sense of humor which goes a long way in the African bush, where you can expect the unexpected! David’s knowledge of the plants, animals and terrain is unmatched. You can tell how much he loves East Africa and wants to make sure everyone leaves feeling the same way about this region. The planning that goes into his itineraries is evident. I can only give the highest marks to his selection of parks, lodges, safari vehicles, drivers and local guides. You may start out with a critical mindset, but his enthusiasm will melt your heart! Go and enjoy! You will surely come back for more!
I have traveled with David Kalama twice and am always impressed with David’s passion for introducing travelers to Africa and it’s wildlife. His knowledge and experience as a guide take his safaris to the places that assure you of seeing the most and best of scenery and animals and his personality lends even more enjoyment to the experience. The level of professionalism and attention to detail make the lodging, meals, transportation, customs and immigration organized and smooth. As an amateur photographer, I have had the benefit of David’s individual help and instruction to increase the quality of my safari photos as he makes sure to get the angles, light, and time needed for the best shots. Every day on a Kalama Safari is different but each day is better than the one before.
The owner and Guide David is a consummate Professional, great personality, made everyday an adventure, knew where the animals were, their habits, his enthusiasm and happy attitude was infectious with his fellow travelers causing continuous smiles throughout days and nights no matter what the challenges a trip in the wilds of Africa can bring, well-liked by his bush vehicle drivers and he hand-picked the best for their bush expertise and friendly communicative skills. His selection of modern tent camps and lodges were Outstanding and tailored to the mood and expectations of the travel group. We not only learned about the wildlife but also about the culture and wonderful people. Known throughout Kenya and Tanzania, he made challenges easy including often tedious border crossing bureaucratic hurdles. You want the best African experience- then this is who you should go with!

We’d been to Africa before and loved it, but our experience with David Kalama in Kenya and Tanzania topped it all! David is extraordinary, knows the animals and their behavior as well as the landscape and the people, and he and his drivers brought us to amazing experiences time and again. We came home with memories (and images) of animals and their behavior that were even better than we could have imagined! David’s knowledge, his humor, and his competence in leading our small safari group were unmatched. We’re home a week and miss it all already (thank you David!). Travel with Kalama Photographic Safaris and you’ll be so glad you did—we are.
