Guide Bio

I am the founder, managing director and adventure guide of a bush-camping mobile safari company.

I was born into the Bayei tribe near Seronga Village, on the east side of the Okavango River panhandles in a small rural area in northern Botswana called Mokgacha. After nine years of rural schooling and two years at a junior college, I went to visit my uncle who lived in Maun, the gateway to the tourism destination area of Okavango Delta in Botswana. There, I began my professional training in 1990 when Okavango Explorations hired me as a camp assistant and Mokoro, dugout canoe poller at Xugana Lodge. In 1991, I started my guide training and a year later went to work at Bird Safaris as a tracker, boat driver and guide trainee. From 1994 to 2001, I worked at Game Trails as a bush camping assistant and guide. I participated in bush walking safaris in the Delta for seven years and then sat for and passed my guiding exams in 1997.

Since then, I have guided professionally full-time except for the year I spent recovering in Nyangabwe Hospital in Francistown from a harrowing late-night attack by a 3.8 meter-long crocodile that dragged me from my tent and into the water. My survival story was widely reported in newspapers, radio and television. In 2001, I completed a series of advanced guide training courses with Okavango Wilderness Safaris and went to work for Bush Ways Mobile Safaris. From 2004 to 2008, I was at Desert and Delta Safari as a lodge guide at Savuti Safari Lodge and Camp Moremi. In 2010 and 2011, I worked at Ker Downey Botswana and in 2012 at Kwando Safaris.

I incorporated this company in 2012. I’ve guided mobile camping safaris for the last nine years and acted as a lodge guide for the past seven years. My professional certifications include Professional Guide License, Special Tourist License and a First Aid Certificate.

Gifts of The Kalahari

Botswana mobile tented safaris in Botswana is the best way to experience Africa. Gifts of the Kalahari has been operating since 2012 and managed by the director who has been guiding for about 20 years.
