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!

Intelligent, cunning and always up to something whether it’s trailing a nearby pack of Painted Wolves, waiting hopefully under a tree for a leopard’s kill to fall or… [Read More]
We have received substantial rainfall across the reserve this past week, with rivers flowing and wildlife flourishing! A first for us here at Sabi Sabi – a zebra with spots! An amazing and unique sighting in so many ways! What we have learnt and believe, is the animal’s cells communicate with one another and the… [Read More]
