Scott Brills

Scott Brills

Chief Mzungu

An adventurer and entrepreneur from the U.S., Scott has always had a love for nature and wildlife. After a career in technology provided him with the means to travel the world, he transitioned into the tourism and hospitality field.

Born in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, Scott started his first company at the age of 19, while attending university courses in Japan. After graduation he continued in the fields of IT and web development, until 2010, when he met Joshua and they began Pamoja Safaris.

After a childhood filled with pets of all shapes and sizes—insects, snakes, lizards, salamanders, hamsters, guinea pigs, turtles, frogs, and more—Scott has found his dream job, being able to spend so much time in close contact with African wildlife.

Scott spends a few months of every year in Tanzania, and the rest of the time in the U.S. or abroad.

Josh Lovuto

Joshua Lovuto

Chief Maasai

Raised in the traditional Maasai way of life during his childhood, without electricity or running water, Josh’s family moved to Arusha city when he was eight years old, where he began his journey into becoming one of the top-rated safari guides in the entire country.

After graduating from the African College of WIldlife with a degree in Wildlife Management, he worked with a series of high-end safari tour operators around the country, gaining experience in wildlife tracking and hospitality management. He continued along this path from 2000 until 2010, when Pamoja Safaris was first envisioned.

He has a deep passion for wildlife and conservation, which is why he still goes out into the field every month, guiding trips and spending time in nature.

Today, Josh still lives in Arusha, along with his wife and three sons.
