Meet the Owners

ELIAS WANGARI
I was born raised and studied in the central of Kenya. From a youth age I had passion in Tourism and travelling influenced by a neighbor who owned a travel company. Being a very close family friend, I grew loving his job and his knowledge of different regions and travel related topics. I knew I wanted to be in a Tourism field.
 
After school I moved to Nairobi where I did my higher studies in Tourism management. I worked as a travel consultant in Nairobi before I moved to Tanzania and worked in a big hotel training staff on customer service. I would later work with different tour/travel companies as a tour manager and marketing.
 
Being exposed and experienced in travel in both Kenya and Tanzania, we joined and started Leadwood Expeditions covering Tanzania and we hope to expand to other destinations.
BONIFACE KARANJA
Born, raised and studied in Mount Kenya region, I am a graduate in Tourism and Business studies from Amboseli Institute of hospitality. My passion for tourism was instilled in me by my late grandfather who happened to be a tour guide. I grew up with a keen interest in tourism and pursued a tourism related courses. I have worked at Giraffe centre (AFEW), home to endangered Rothschild Giraffe. Here I gave conservation lectures to visiting students and general visitors and guided them on AFEW nature walks.
 
I also worked at Sheldrick wildlife Trust, which is home to orphan baby Elephants and Rhinos. I used to give talks about Elephants and Rhinos and the organization’s activities to general to visitors. I also played a part at Kenya Wildlife service where I guided visitors at Nairobi animal orphanage, and Nairobi Safari walk and during game drives at Nairobi National park.
 
Later I began offering tour services as a freelancer to Kenya and Tanzania tourist circuits before moving to Tanzania in 2010 to work in the hotel industry at different positions to managerial level.
 
I learnt a lot in service delivery as a tour operator and a hotelier in meeting client’s needs. I made several contacts while in Tanzania and this is where I met my co-founder Elias. We kept a close friendship and business relationship as we were both working in the tourism industry before I move to the UK in 2012.
 
Keeping in touch with Elias, we would engage on future of tourism industry often. Demand for Safari and beach holidays seemed growing and we thought of making holidays more interesting and broad.
 
We deliberated on having qualified team for tourism industry who would ensure proper time management, have unlimited client consultations, professional driver guides who would adhere to national and game reserves good conducts like speed limit, keeping on designated game drives routes as this would not destroy wildlife’s habitats and endanger their lives.
 
Having looked into this we felt it was time to do something and have an industry of expertise for a quality service delivery and that’s where the idea of Leadwood Expeditions came from.
 
We wanted to change East African holiday traditional of just having a safari or chill at the beach and spice it up with awesome activities, like having yoga sessions during your holiday, involving oneself with sporting activities during the holiday and now we have brought onboard business people to hold business meetings, conferences away from the town centre to a more mind, soul and body friendly environment like national reserves and parks. Later on their can do safari or beach holiday and other team building activities to refresh their mind.
 
Working with Leadwood Expeditions has been fun and rewarding. I have gained more knowledge and experience in the industry, travelled to different parts of the world and made great friends whom I don’t think I would have met if the idea to run a travel company didn’t materialized.
 
Our goals are to raise the standard of tourism industry, adhering to the industry’s policy in East Africa and the world in general, looking further to work closely with the locals and create awareness of tourism and importance to conserve the environment.
 
When this is achieved, the tourism industry will run in a conducive environment and be enjoyed by the future generation.
