“When you leave Africa, as the plane lifts, you feel that more than leaving a continent you’re leaving a state of mind.

Ranger Profile: Kerry-Lee Roberg
My name is Kerry-Lee Roberg and I have been at Sabi Sabi for just over one year now. I have been drawn to nature, wildlife and the African bush in particular for as long as I can remember. It was always a dream of mine to work in such a beautiful place.
After a few months spent in the UK, I decided to pursue a career in design, however once my studies were completed I was encouraged to follow my heart and forget about what society deemed acceptable of a then 24-year-old female from Cape Town and the rest is history. I absolutely love living and working in the bush. I love that every day not only do I get to experience something new, but I also get to share these experiences with people from all over the world!
I am a very amateur photographer but look forward to improving this skill. I love taking photos which capture special moments, amazing sightings, beautiful scenery and scenes where Mother Nature simply has me sitting in awe feeling lucky to live this life. I also enjoy writing and look forward to sharing information and experiences in future blogs!

Seasoned safari-goers often joke about discovering a pangolin, as did Kerry’s guests, and little… [Read More]
The week started off with some welcome rain and some lion tracks and signs that a small herd of buffalo had run across the road. We soon came across one of the Avoca males lying beside the remains of a buffalo calf which he must have brought down during the night. He didn’t move far… [Read More]
