Safari guides should be accredited as the essential services of an African adventure. Their passion, knowledge and insight of the natural world provides us with a deeper perspective and respect for the environment, and the delicate nature in which it exists.
The first episode of our ‘Safari Guide Chronicles’ series featured professional Jenman African Safaris Guide, Jonathan Dube. A Zimbabwean born guide, Jonathan’s love and passion for his country emanates through his stories, and his smile. For Zimbabweans, guiding is an honoured and esteemed profession, offering a platform for empowerment, inclusivity and the possibility to make a difference. Many guides come from local communities surrounding national parks, resulting in the industry being comprised of people who have grown up with pride and a sense of responsibility for their environment. Understanding the reciprocal nature of conservation, guides are role models for future generations.
Watch our live recording as Jonathan shares his wealth of knowledge with us, connecting travelers to the wilderness. This connection goes beyond the safari, as life-long memories and friendships are made. Johnathan speaks about his love of the bush, influential role models, tools of empowerment as well as detailed encounters of his favourite safari sightings and memories!
Through the eyes and voices of our guides, we take you on a journey, exploring the unique aspects of becoming a professional guide, as well as wild safari stories collected over time.
