Ranger Profile: Kevan Dobbie
My name is Kevan Dobbie and I am part of the Sabi Sabi Social Media Team. I am recently new to guiding as I was previously in the aspect of reserve management and the ecological department of various private reserves due to my tertiary studies being a degree in Nature Conservation. However, with that being said, my passion for what we possess in terms of our wildlife is beyond explanation and I try and engage my passion upon my guests to ignite theirs.
I am very keen on photography and would call myself an amateur as there is much to more to learn in presenting my work to a certain level and I am learning new tricks each and every day. I enjoy taking shots that represent what I see in my eyes on a daily basis in order to enlighten those viewing our social media pages of how extraordinary this place is out here in the middle of the bush which I call home. In my photographs I like to include certain animal behaviour, emotion, action-packed moments and the events that they get up to each day. The nice thing is that each and every day is different and unique and that what makes photography while driving my guests around special and exciting, and I am in the best place to do it.

This is possibly because once a male leopard of such age starts to threaten the current dominant male, he will be pushed out… [Read More]
