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.

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.

I can see Sydney in the distance, already waiting besides a shiny vehicle, freshly ironed uniform and armed with his sparkling smile ready to welcome our guests. Sydney… [Read More]
