2002 TO PRESENT: Guiding in many of the Kenyan National Parks.
WHY AND HOW DID YOU BECOME A GUIDE?
From early childhood I enjoyed story-telling and history which further led to me developing a great passion and interest in nature which was the final decider for my decision to pursue a career in tour guiding.
WHAT MAKES A GOOD GUIDE?
Someone who loves and respects nature. It also helps to have a passion in hospitality and interest in different cultures.
MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT?
One time in Lake Baringo a couple of years ago when a hippo broke a clients tent. The tent was next to mine and we had no idea how the hippo managed such a feat! Thank goodness there were no injuries.
Elephant for their amazing memory and similar emotional sentiments as us humans, particularly compassion.
MOST MEMORABLE SIGHTING?
In the Mara - a good fight between a buffalo bull and 2 male lions. Even though the buffalo was eventually killed one of the male lions was also very seriously injured in the process.
INTERESTING ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR?
At Tsavo west; a rock python swallowing a whole young female gazelle with its pointed horns as well.
