Born in Tanzania in the small town of Tanga, not far from the Indian Ocean, Abu knew since his childhood that he was born to work with people. Abuu worked for over 15 years for several of the major tour companies in Tanzania. Abuu’s expertise with nature is reflected in the intense bush experience that Long Way Expedition specializes in.What sets him apart from others is his bush experience, he knows the seasons, the land and it’s secrets and he will share the lives of the animals with you,while Ann has been working as hotels manager for over 10yrs in Arusha also dealing with booking and reservation.
