Julian Camm

General Manager - East Africa

About me

I was born in Ghana, West Africa, before moving to the UK for my education. I moved to Tanzania in February 1999 to work for one of the larger safari companies here, reaching the position of General Manager. In September 2007 I joined Albatros Travel as the East Africa General Manager and have enjoyed the more personalised service that we give to each client that travels with us.

Tanzania really is a land of extremes, with Africa’s highest mountain, its deepest lake, its largest lake, the largest game reserve in the world and the largest mammal migration – all in one country that gives 25% of its land mass to conservation. There really is so much on offer in terms wildlife viewing, adventure safari, exotic beaches. However for those that can, I think a trip to Katavi, a true wilderness area and Mahale, for the amazing experience of being in the presence of Chimpanzees, is one of the most special experiences in Tanzania.

For the more energetic I really think a trek up Mount Kilimanjaro is an experience of a lifetime. It is an incredibly scenic climb taking you through five distinct ecological zones and there is nothing more rewarding than reaching the roof of Africa!

Head of Finance

About me

I was born India where I studied and acquired my Chartered Accountancy degree. I moved to Tanzania in 2004 and immediately started working with Albatros Travel. Albatros has always been a great company here in Tanzania and it is a great pleasure to be part of the team.

Albatros Travel has always been renowned for organising tailor-made and special interest safaris, however one set tour that is always popular is our Tanzania Wildlife Week. This takes you on a driving safari around the Northern Circuit of Tanzania staying in some of the smaller and more personalised properties. It is a classic Tanzania safari and great value for money.

Juliet Samaka

Sales and Maketing Consultant

About me

I became involved in tourism in 2003 and have since had the great privilege of travelling all over Tanzania’s amazing wilderness areas and visiting the exotic beaches of Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia. It therefore gives me great pleasure to be able to introduce this amazing country to all our guests and I hope to be able to encourage more people to come and visit my country. I joined Albatros in 2007 and have had the opportunity to travel to some of the trade shows giving me a first hand opportunity to introduce and show off Tanzania.

There is so much to recommend in Tanzania, but I feel the southern circuit of Tanzania: Selous and Ruaha, offer a more wild and exclusive game experience, as well as giving clients a more diverse game viewing holiday, with walking safaris, boat safaris, night game drives and fly camping safaris - and not forgetting that this is the best place to see the endangered African Wild Dogs. I also feel that Zanzibar is a must on any trip to Tanzania, as it is the perfect place to unwind after an exciting safari.

Helen Laizer

Sales Consultant

About me

I was born in Arusha, the hub of Tanzania’s northern safari circuit, and have been in tourism since 2004, having joined Albatros Travel at the beginning of 2010. I have really enjoyed designing safaris for people and seeing them so happy afterwards that they want to come back again.

Helen recommends

The two most amazing safari experiences I have had are firstly being in southern Serengeti in March and seeing the incredible numbers of wildebeest in one area - so many you couldn’t even start to count them! My second was in Mahale with the chimpanzees and seeing the whole family group all around us. I also try and convince people to visit Stone Town when they go to Zanzibar and not just the beach, as it has so much history and it is fantastic walking through all the narrow streets.

Kheri Patrick

Sales Consultant

About me

I have been selling tours in Tanzania since 1997. I joined Albatros in 2007 after many years with one of the larger safari companies in Tanzania and what I really enjoy is having the freedom to design a safari that matches the client’s wishes.

Kheri recommends

The safaris that I really enjoy creating are those that involve some kind of special interest, be it farming, cultural, or archaeological. However I always feel that every safari must include the Serengeti and where possible, that is, an area that allows you to experience the sheer volume of thousands and thousands of wildebeest surrounding your safari vehicle and going on as far as the eye can see.
