I’m Mark Madola James, the Founder of Shrike Safaris. A naturalist and explorer at heart, I founded Shrike Safaris with the mission of sharing the diverse landscape, cultures, and wildlife of my country - Tanzania with other local and international travelers. Tanzania is my beloved country. I was born here, I live here, and I have explored many corners of this incredible land over many decades. From Mount Kilimanjaro - the roof of Africa and the endless plains of the Serengeti to Zanzibar Island and Pemba, Lake Victoria - the largest in Africa, and other hidden places that no one has never instagrammed, I am still exploring..! Won’t you join me?
