Meet Idda

My name is Idda Oakes (maiden name Massawe), my family and I run Massawe Adventures.

I am the owner of Massawe Adventures a travel and adventure company that specialise in safari, treks and tours in Tanzania. I set up my company to offer unique and individual experiences in travel and tourism of Tanzania. Born in Tanzania, I moved to the UK to study accounting over fifteen years ago. I am now a certified accountant, British citizen and married with two little children.
I have never lost touch or forgotten the beauty of Tanzania and I will endeavour to share this with as many people as possible. Over the last twenty years my two brothers and I have run a successful safari adventure company. They have been handling the physically tours in Tanzania and I have been advising and running the business in the UK.

Massawe Adventures has unique advantage over rival safari companies as we are a family run business with expert local knowledge of Tanzania. Individual experiences are arranged and the client able to discover the real Tanzania and explore the hidden gems of the beautiful and unforgettable Tanzania.” Massawe Adventures is also represented on SafariBookings.com.
