As a Gold Level guide the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association (KPSGA) I am familiar with local wildlife, cultures, and conditions. I also hold a Level 2 qualification with the Field Guides Association of Southern Africa (FGASA), and a Level 3 Track & Sign qualification with Cybertracker, a non-profit network for wildlife trackers. These widely-recognized qualifications have provided me with useful tools to interpret the signs and behaviours of wildlife we encounter on safari.
Although I’m a Kenyan by birth and a qualified guide, I do not take for granted the collective, traditional knowledge systems of Africa’s indigenous peoples. I hold the utmost respect for the ancient wisdom and skills held by local cultures that I could never hope to personally attain in full. I strive to include representatives of Africa’s rich diversity of ethnicities throughout my safaris to intertwine this wealth of knowledge into the fabric of every safari.
