Our story

After many years of working for different companies within the safari branche, the dream of starting an own company evolved. That is how we came up with Great Pelican Safari. Having our own company gives us the opportunity to do things differently and come up with our own trips. We not only want to give our customers an experience of a lifetime, but also learn them something. About nature, animals and about Tanzania.


My name is Joachim Kivuyo. I am a Masaai by tribe, so my roots are also based on living in nature. Nowadays I live in Arusha with my wife and daughters.

Coming from an upbringing based on nature and completing a wildlife study, I know a lot about nature an animals. I am passionate about the behavioral changes of animals and love to figure out how they work together and interdependent.

I have experience in the safari field for over 10 years. I know where to find the animals and how to take an adventurous route that not every safari car takes. Going on safari with me will definitely be memorable.
