Ranger Profile: Kevan Dobbie
My name is Kevan Dobbie and I am part of the Sabi Sabi Social Media Team. I am relatively new to guiding and was previously involved in reserve management and the ecological department of various private reserves, with my tertiary studies having been a degree in Nature Conservation. That being said, my passion for what we possess in terms of our wildlife is beyond explanation and I try and instil this passion in the guests we welcome to Sabi Sabi. I am very interested in photography and would call myself a keen amateur, as there is much more to learn in presenting my work to a certain level and I am learning new tricks each and every day.
What I enjoy most is taking photographs that represent what I see on a daily basis in order to enlighten those viewing our social media pages of how extraordinary this place is and which we 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’s what makes photography, while driving my guests through the reserve, special and exciting, and I am in the best place to do it.

The change of season is well on its way and is upon us here on the reserve. The average day time temperatures have been mild to excessively hot as we enter spring from winter. Although… [Read More]
