About Us

Our goal is to make the African Safari Experience accessible to the most number of people possible in a responsible, sustainable manner.

Pamoja Safaris was formed by two friends—an American that had a passion for African wildlife, and a veteran Tanzanian guide who was looking to branch off on his own. Together the two were able to establish a new type of safari company–one that would not only provide the exemplary service and experiences that one would expect on such a trip, but also one that gives back to the land and people that make it all possible.
We aim to provide you with the time of your life, along with an deeper understanding about the environment and people that call Tanzania home. Through our philanthropic programs we are able to introduce visitors to local efforts to improve the conditions of the people that call these areas home, and through our guest’s patronage we are able to assist these programs in the work that they do.

Founder Scott Brills


Founder Scott Brills is a longtime adventurer and entrepreneur, having explored over 80 countries and territories via foot, automobile, rickshaw, and train.

It was this thirst for travel and new experiences that led him to visit Tanzania in 2010. His first stop in the country was Serengeti National Park, where he experienced a week-long safari. Afterwards he visited Zanzibar and proceeded to summit Kilimanjaro.

Having experienced a small part of Tanzania, he was hooked. It was now his mission to find a way to share such amazing experiences with others.

Scott met co-founder—Josh Siligaki—during his time in the Serengeti, during which Josh was serving as an assistant safari guide. The two struck up a friendship, which eventually led to talks of potentially working together.

It was that friendship and passion to share their mutual love of Tanzania's wildlife and natural beauty that led to the creation of Pamoja Safaris.
