Dunia Camp in Tanzania's Serengeti is the only camp in the country run by an all-female team. From the guides to the management, they are proud of this accomplishment and to provide expertly led safaris in this beautiful natural habitat. In manager Angel's own words, "So many thought that we will be very scared with animals, that we can’t cooperate and work as one – they were not looking to the positive side of a woman! Women can do anything that can be done by any other person in this world.” #ThisIsAfricaExclusive @AsiliaAfrica . . . . . #AsiliaAfrica #AsiliaGram #Asilia #Africa #MyAsiliaSafari #EastAfrica #AfricanSafari #Travel #Adventure #Photoftheday #Photography #SafariGoals #Tanzania #Serengeti #GenuineSafaris #femaleempowerment #womenled #femaleguide #womenwhotravel #GenuineDifference #Genuine #MyAsilia #AsiliaSafari #Wildlife #Animals #Nature #luxurysafari #luxurytravel #duniacamp

Speaking to the BBC, Jane Ngwatu, the Director-General of the camp stated that the move to have an all-female team was to give them the power and also an indication that women can also do anything including living in the bushes.

“We give women more power. It’s not only men that can live in the bushes,” Ngwatu is quoted.

Additionally, according to the camp management, In honour of International Women’s Day, it was established that the women taking charge of the camp was a great move towards their empowerment in a male-dominated society hence need to uplift the mission.

“This camp is a shining beacon of women’s empowerment in an otherwise male-dominated society, and we are proud to support such an uplifting mission!” read the Instagram post.

According to an online report compiled for the UN Conference on Trade and Development in 2015, out of 2,000 tour guides, less than 10 were women. Ideally, most Safari guides in Africa are men, a move that is currently trying to change.

In Botswana, there also exists an all-women guiding team at the Chobe Game Lodge.

“We applaud the women in Africa who are breaking barriers and bringing their special touch to the wilderness. We look forward to seeing female guides being the norm, rather than an unusual sight,” reads an article on the Lodge’s site.
