From the Traveler's Perspective

 

 "I've visited Tanzania nine times. After my first tour with Lalashe Mollel, the founder of Touchstone Tanzania, I never  considered booking with anyone else. With Mr. Mollel's travel company you'll experience not only an unforgettable visit to see an amazing land and its incredible wildlife but gain insight into what truly makes the country such a welcoming destination. I first came to Tanzania to see its animals. After seeing the country through the eyes (and heart) of Lalashe and his "ambassador guides" I keep returning to draw inspiration from its people. A tour with Touchstone Tanzania will truly be an  unforgettable adventure.

"Before Lalashe Mollel founded Touchstone TZ, we were fortunate enough to be the beneficiary of his kind, thorough and professional care. I run an organization that is supporting a girls school initiative west of the Serengeti. It’s not an easy place to get to! I have traversed the Serengeti many times with Lalashe as we travelled to and from Kitenga. He is an extremely cautious driver and has been my teacher on both the wildlife and culture of Tanzania. As well, Lalashe was our chosen guide as we curated donor visitor trips to the school. He immediately became part of the GEC family and led what have become ‘trips of a lifetime’ for many. Tanzania is an incredible country on so many different levels - beauty, culture and wonderful people. You must go!"

 "Our trip to Tanzania would not have been half as spectacular had it not been for our incredible guide, Lalashe. From the moment he greeted us at the airport, to our tearful goodbyes to someone we now thought of as family he delivered the most fantastic level of service imaginable. He took the time to show us the true Tanzania, to explore markets with us and to describe in detail his country's multitude of flora and fauna. We saw Tanzania through  his eyes and knew his love for his home. He patiently taught us  helpful Swahili phrases and worked along side us at a girls' school in rural Tanzania. Our farewell safari across the Serengeti was an unforgettable experience of sheer beauty. Lalshe brings you home to Tanzania and makes you want to stay forever. We recommend both him and Touchstone Tanzania as THE guide to one of the most breathtaking places on this planet."
