About

Why the great outdoors?

When I joined the safari industry, there was a lot of poaching. I wanted
to stop it – to contribute to the conservation of wildlife.

How did you learn about the bush?

My grandfather taught me. I grew up in the nearby village of Chiawa
where he introduced me to all kinds of animals and birdlife, teaching me why
it’s important to look after them.

What do you like the most about your job?

Being able to make a real difference by helping with conservation, and
teaching those I meet about it too. I also witnessed a lion killing a warthog
right on the riverbank whilst in a boat with guests – talk about “right place
at the right time”.
