Ranger Profile: Andries Ndlovu
My name is Andries Ndlovu. As a child I was always intrigued by nature. My ﬁrst experience of the true wilderness came when I bartended at a lodge on a Big 5 reserve.
Naturally my attention shifted from mixing cocktails and ﬂipping bottles to bush walks and game drives. It was only a matter of time before I got my ﬁeld guiding qualiﬁcations and instead of being behind the bar, found myself behind the steering wheel of a game viewer. I’ve been guiding for almost 6 years now and still enjoy every minute of it. Waking up every morning and knowing you’ll create memorable experiences, for me, is the most rewarding feeling ever and that’s what makes being a guide at Sabi Sabi the greatest job! Besides the awesome fauna and ﬂora the reserve has to provide, the family bonds between staﬀ make it truly a home away from home.

Living in the bush has its advantages and one of them is waking up and heading to work with wildlife on your doorstep. A pod of… [Read More]
The cats have most certainly dominated this week’s highlights; and a sure highlight was a heart-warming sighting of the Southern Pride female, her cubs, and the N’waswishaka male lions together! The week started with the four N’waswishaka male lions all separated which allowed for great sightings of them calling for one another… Once they had… [Read More]
