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.

Fraser’s interests and skills are as diverse as his explorations.

Mark McKenzie

Mark loves Africa and has spent his entire life exploring its remotest corners. The Zululand bush in South Africa is where his childhood adventures played out and from there it has generally been a Northward migration through Southern, East and Central Africa whilst pursuing a professional safari guiding career spanning the last 20 years.

Simon Byron

Growing up on a farm in central Botswana, the son of an avid exploration geologist, Simon spent his childhood camping out and enjoying nature as his playground. Numerous family holidays to the Okavango Delta and many other wild places in Southern Africa engrained in him a passion for wild and remote places.

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.

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.
