I have been on safari with Sham five times with groups of 5-12 people. He always does an amazing job. He is a knowledgeable and respected guide, speaks great English and knows the Serengeti! I would recommend you give him a chance to serve you or your group. Here are a couple pics I took with Sham.

Sham is a wonderful guide! He is very knowledgable, kind, and considerate. I agree with other comments that he is like an expert friend. You just trust him immediately. He also has a degree in animal studies and 12 years of guiding safari, so you can totally rely on his expertise. I wish I could spend more than 1 day in his trip, but I would come back for sure!

What an amazing experience I had with Sham and Beauty Experience Safaris! I did the Serengeti 11 years ago but this was by far the best experience of my life! Sham is such a kind, wonderful person and his experience with the Serengeti ensured we saw all the animals on our list. Sham was meticulous in making sure our timing was perfect to get to the perfect locations to see the animals. There were so many breathtaking moments I can hardly list them all. We camped under the stars and Sham made a fire for us and gave us the history of any question we had. Sham became a friend and also made sure our safety was a priority! All the small details that he brought to the safari made all the difference and made this an experience of a lifetime!

I was fortunate enough to have experienced the Serengeti 11 years ago with Shams as my guide. To my delight, 11 years later Shams is now running his own tours and I had the pleasure of having him guide me through the Serengeti yet again. I have had many experiences in the Serengeti, but none like the safari I recently took with Shams. This recent visit was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. I was told there is only a 1% chance of seeing a cheetah in the Serengeti. Not only did we witness a cheetah, but also had one climb on top of our truck! We also saw a bird’s eye view of prides of lions, the migration, and came face to face with over 100 elephants. The Serengeti is a not a zoo, it is a place many majestic animals call home. I believe it is part luck, and part tenacity of the guides to enable you to witness the wide variety of wildlife. Shams did his utmost in helping us see a wide variety of animals. Shams goes above and beyond to ensure that you will have the best experience possible. His knowledge will put you at ease, educate you, and answer any questions you might have. You can tell this is not just a job for Shams, it is a passion. I HIGHLY recommend Beauty Safari Experience and look forward to many future visits through the Serengeti together.

If you're looking to go on safari in the Serengeti, book with Beauty Safari. My boyfriend and I wanted see Serengeti in dry season, but didn't know much else about the details. We collaborated with Sham to develop an itinerary that worked for us, which included a mix of camping and lodges while also seeing Tarangire and Ngorongoro crater. He gives you a bulk sum that includes fuel, fees and the cost of a chef who prepares breakfast, dinner and boxed lunches. It's all very transparent with no hidden fees. Sham knows these parks like the back of his hand, which is extremely impressive given almost nothing is marked. He ensured that we saw the Big 5 (elephant, rhino, leopard, lion, buffalo) along with some surprises like fresh kills and baby leopards/cheetahs/rhinos. He hustles to get you the best view which is important during high season. He's also got a new van that comfortably seats 7. While looking around the campsite, it became clear that a lot of the guides and their groups had transactional relationships. With Sham it feels different. He eats with you, plans the day with you, takes into account different things you might want to see or do and then he works to make it happen. He's personable, fun, and has a great sense of humor. All of this is important when on vacation and taking a week-long safari. He's also the preferred safari guide for Christian Bale, so when you book Beauty Safari Experience you could say you're booking a celebrity experience.....
