Meet Idda

The Architect Behind Your Tanzania Adventure

“My name is Idda Oakes (maiden name Massawe), and I am the proud owner of Massawe Adventures, your native Tanzania adventure holiday planner based in the UK. 

With over 20 years of experience, we specialise in crafting incredible, tailor-made, and eco-friendly experiences in the country we proudly call home – “Nyumbani”.

Born and raised in Tanzania, I migrated to the United Kingdom over fifteen years ago to pursue my studies in accounting. Today, as a certified accountant, British citizen, and mother of two, my heart remains connected to the vibrant diversity of Tanzania’s landscapes, cultures, and untold stories.

I used this experience to start Massawe Adventures. Using our expertise, local knowledge and authentic approach, we offer unique tailored Tanzanian experiences, curated with a blend of international quality and local flavour. 

Leveraging our years of experience, our company stands out with a distinctive set of values that make us your ideal travel companion. As a family-run business, our roots in Tanzania run deep, allowing us to offer an unparalleled understanding of the local terrain, culture, and hidden gems that elude non-natives.”
