Eliya was born in Tanzania. Eliya founded Nature Bound Africa (NBA) after having worked for 9 years with various tours companies as a driver guide, progressing to operations manager. He gained the experience and vision for what is considered to be the most important principles in operating a successful safari business, travelling through East Africa countries, from Tanzania to Burundi, gathering experience and establishing contacts with safari companies and tour guides. Eliya has exceptional knowledge of East Africa and excels in matching you to key guides who he has got to know from working in the industry during the last 9 years.
Although Eliya has covered the whole of East African countries in his journeys, he continues to travel often to update information and explore new areas. Hard to find information on Africa is always at his fingertips, and he loves to take the time to talk to people about the many adventures that can be found on the continent. His latest trip was visiting the Selous and Serengeti in Tanzania and the Maasai Mara in Kenya to see many of the new camp openings and doing fun activities of walking with elephants, horse riding, tracking rhinos and wild dogs, and canoeing. Selous, Saadani and Mikumi National Parks trips in Tanzania are still some of his favorite remote adventures.
Exploring is his lifestyle; he strives to deliver the right trip for your wildlife experience of a lifetime and to ensure that his first goal of commitment to sustainable tourism and the long-term conservation of habitats will continue to be meaningful. Through NBA he supports private concessions that have partnerships with local communities, for example The Arusha Community Center and accommodation with low usage of energy resources. Eliya loves to plan trips that will have clients adventuring to parts of East Africa they only ever dreamed off.
