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.

Lions were heard calling from all over Sabi Sabi towards the end of last week and with the change in lion dynamics, we were all eager to head out to see what was going on. After tracking the lions through the heart of Sabi Sabi, two of the N’waswishaka males were found moving very quickly… [Read More]
