Jackson Tinka was born in the nearby Maasai settlement of Aitong. Always smiling and full of energy Jackson’s upbringing has greatly influenced his personality, respect, knowledge and sensitivity towards his local environment. With an instinctive understanding of nature Jackson has already learnt a lot and is always ready to learn more.

He looks upon his upbringing as a privilege and is proud to share the exciting, action-packed Mara experiences with his guests. Now that Jackson’s dream to become a guide has come true, he has realised the full potential of his knowledge and the importance of educating not only our clients but also his Maasai peers; teaching them the values and importance of conservation in the endangered, but beautiful area in which they live.

Since 2014, Jackson belongs to the elite class of silver-level KPSGA guides.
