Ranger Profile: Chanyn-Lee Zeelie
My name is Chanyn-Lee Zeelie and I am part of the Sabi Sabi Social Media Team. My parents played a massive role in my passion for nature as I was lucky enough to go on holiday to the Kruger National Park since a very young age. The first time I set foot in Sabi Sabi was in 2012 at the age of 20.
Needless to say, I never left and have fallen in love with this piece of heaven. I enjoy writing blogs about what inspires me at the time and I couldn't be happier to share it with passionate people like myself.

The only certainty is the unfaltering beauty of Sabi Sabi. I am very lucky to be a part of that.
