John W. Schoen – Safari Testimonials
My wife and I recently spent 2 weeks on Safari in northern Tanzania with Brian Mengoriki and Tryphon Kappia. As a professional wildlife biologist, I had great expectations about Africa and its wildlife. My expectations were dramatically exceeded on this trip. Brian and Tryphon Kappia were highly experienced in locating and identifying both the birds and
mammals of this region. They also were knowledgeable about the natural history of each species as well as the general ecology and human culture of the region. I am a highly motivated photographer and these expedition leaders got us into great position for outstanding photography while also minimizing any stress on the wildlife. On top of this, they were outstanding safari companions and friends and each day was a pleasure to share our explorations with them. I would highly recommend this safari team to anyone who wants to experience and learn about Africa and its incredible wildlife. As safari guides for wildlife viewing and photography, you can’t do better than Brian and Tryphon Kappia. Their detailed knowledge of wildlife, experience in expedition planning and leadership, and friendly enthusiasm made our African safari a trip of a lifetime.
