Richard Anderson

As an eight-year-old boy visiting the Kruger Park with his family Richard had the fortune of a near-death experience involving a lilac breasted roller, a pride of lions feasting on a giraffe, two very angry black rhino bulls and a game ranger recovering from a triple bypass. A life exploring the wonders of Africa was, thereafter, inevitable.

Fraser Gear

Fraser Gear set out to explore Africa as soon as he was free of the shackles of schooling. Mozambique became his home for a while and here Fraser’s love of his mother continent became firmly entrenched. Returning to South Africa he found employment in the greater Kruger National Park area. The Shangaan people who reside in this region are legendary trackers and skilled ethno botanists and thus began Fraser’s tuition.

Mark McKenzie

Born in Zululand South Africa, Mark embarked on a professional guiding career in 1999 and shortly thereafter joined Phinda Private Game Reserve in Kwazulu-Natal. After undergoing a 6 week training and selection course Mark spent 2 years as a ranger at Phinda, which instilled in him the values, ethics and reverence for wildlife he carries with him today.

Phill Steffny

Looking after people's expectations while on safari in Africa has always been in my blood. I spent my childhood on a game reserve in the vicinity of the Kruger National Park. Attending an outdoor-based school, and getting my first job as a river guide at the age of 15 gave me the responsibility of the safety kayaker on some of Africa's wildest rivers.

Simon Stobbs

In 1995, Simon completed a post-graduate degree in Psychology. He then joined an IT company in Johannesburg where he worked as a Human Resources Manager. After 2 years in this role, he decided it was time to follow his true passion in life and he became a game ranger at Sabi Sabi.
