Masoud “Masa” Kilanga
Masa together with David founded A Tent With A View and has over 25 years of guiding experience in Southern Tanzania, mainly in Selous & Saadani. Masa is also responsible for building the beautiful camps you will enjoy at Sable Mountain lodge, Simply Saadani Camp & Babs’ Camp. These days Masa is based in our Dar es Salaam office and has the unenviable task of dealing with all things financial. A true family man, Masa is dad to 5 daughters & 2 sons and granddad to 2 grandchildren.
David first came to Tanzania to work as a safari guide in Selous in 1991 and has been based in Tanzania more or less ever since. In 2010 David started the GPS elephant collaring project in Saadani National Park with Dr Alfred Kikoti and TANAPA. As well as being at the heart of the Tent With A View Safaris business with Masa, David continues to work with Alfred on elephant conservation in Tanzania and is based in Dar es Salaam with wife Tara and daughter Lili.
What began as a few years off from corporate law, ended with Tara becoming the marketing director for A Tent With A View Safaris. Based since 2005 in Dar es Salaam with husband David and daughter Lili, Tara will move to the UK later in 2015 from where she will run the new Tent With A View Safaris & Land Rover Suites marketing office.
Hassan "Kita" Mwenjuma
Hasaan, (known affectionately as Kita) first met and worked with Masa and David in Selous in 1991 and has continued working with them since that time joining A Tent With A View when it started in 1995. A very senior member of the team, Kita is our chief safari guide, our main tour leader for group tours and has lately become responsible for the running of our fantastic “Safari Butterflies” – our amazing Land Rover safari conversions which transform into luxury mobile homes. Kita has vast experience guiding and was trained by David and Masa in Southern Tanzania.
Rehema (“Ray”) Kilanga is the youngest and newest member of the Tent With A View team and the daughter of Masa. Ray studied accountancy at university and is now training to be the chief accountant for the company. Ray is based in the Dar es Salaam office.
Yahaya ("Chicken") Masala
Masala has the unenviable task of organising supplies for the camps. Based out of the Dar es Salaam office, Masala spends most of his day on the move and there is very little that Masala cannot source..
Lili Guthrie "Chairperson"
Lili M Guthrie is the smallest member of the team but despite her size, she has already insisted on becoming the company Chair ! You are likely to meet Lili somewhere on your travels whether she be on the beach at Simply Saadani building sand castles or spotting wildlife from the Sable Mountain tree house in Selous!
