About Us

Office Staff


A great trip can’t occur without conscientious attention to every detail.

our back-office staff go that extra mile to make sure yours is a smooth and worry-free adventure.


Maureen Mallya
Maureen started with SENE in 2017, coming back to Moshi, where she grew up, after working for a tour operator in Arusha.  She is quiet and very attentive to her work, though she can be found laughing quite a lot – sometimes for no apparent reason!
Benedicta Khallinga
Our newest office employee, Benedicta manages SENE’s finances and keeps our accounts straight. She is married and has an infant daughter whom she dotes on, providing nice balance from all the time she spends staring at numbers on a computer screen!
Omary Abubary
Equipment Crew
“Chaser,” as he is popularly called, is known for his broad smile and superhuman feats of strength.  He hauls around equipment, checks the gear, and jumps at any tasks where others fear to tread – Chaser does it all around the office grounds!
Tim Leinbach
U.S. Operations
Tim handles client communication and U.S. finances. Since 1990 Tim has lived on-and-off in Tanzania, speaks Swahili, knows the country from the inside, and is sensitive to the interests of our guests as he arranges their perfect Tanzanian adventure. Tim says the run around Kilimanjaro was much harder than any of his 3 ascents!
