Being a ranger requires a special passion for the African bush and there are few that can boast more than 20 years in the bush. Jabu is one of the many staff members at Sabi Sabi that has been with the company for more than 20 years and it amazes me how much knowledge he has accumulated in that time. Very recently he has developed a new love for photography and I thought I would share some of his great pics with all of you. He recently won an award for the Best New Photographer as voted for by members of Nikon SA and our Marketing Director. We look forward to showing you more of his photos in the future!

Jabu was our ranger in May when we came to Sabi Sabi. He is a wonderful and knowledgeable guide to the wonders of the bush. He is also just the nicest person you ever want to spend time with. It’s great to see his photography. Paul Sher

Jabu was my Ranger when I was there in January, we absolutely loved him. His knowledge of the bush, his sense of humor and warm, caring personality made our days at Sabi Sabi so very memorable. Great photos Jabu, keep on clicking!!
