Pietro Luraschi

“I was born in Italy, from a family of engineers, left home to follow my dream, worked for the last 18 years, guiding in the wildest of Africa’s and especially Tanzania’s protected areas like the Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha National Park.The deep feelings given by a walk in the bush brought me also to work as a walking guide first in the Greater Kruger and then again in southern Tanzania.

My desire to guide, exploring and improving my understanding of nature, has allowed me to work in different wilderness areas throughout East Africa, the horn of Africa and Southern Africa. I guided safaris to Ethiopia, Eritrea, Uganda, Kenya, Namibia, South Africa and Tanzania.

Training has been a natural progression and a way of giving back to a profession that has given me so much. I trained guides in Kenya and Tanzania. I also trained Tanzania national park rangers for walking safari.


I have been for many years Asilia Tanzania head guide and head guide trainer, a job that allowed me to work with many different guides and in many different places, trying to make the difference in raising the guides standard and giving them extra passion and motivation, now i am fully dedicated to tailor special wildlife experiences and privately guide guests.

As a private guide I lead guests to the most incredible places helping them to understand the hidden links that rule the life in the bush. Photography is another keen interest that complements my guiding.

I am accredited with Fgasa as a Level 3 guide and Trails guide (1st rifle) and fluent in Ki-swahili

The joy of waking up to the sounds of the bush, the wonder of discovering every day a bit more
of these incredible places, the desire of sharing and helping other people to understand the language of the bush ties me to this continent, this profession, and this life style.”
