Our Story

Ramadhan, a Rwandan, and Carolyn, an American, are the owners of The Mane Tours, Ltd. Ramadhan was born and raised in Kigali, Rwanda and has been a professional guide for the past decade. During Carolyn’s career, she worked for a large corporation for years and then had her own financial planning firm. Because of her passionate belief that we must do more to protect the wildlife of this planet, she started volunteering at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. While volunteering there she had the opportunity to go on safari with the zoo to see the wildlife in their natural habitat in Tanzania and Rwanda. It was such a remarkable experience, she now wishes to assist others in finding the same joy. The wildlife in zoos help people gain the knowledge about habitat loss and conservation. However, actually observing them in the wild gives people a chance to see firsthand what needs to be done to help preserve and protect our planet’s unique wildlife. Travel with us for an unforgettable experience.
