Ranger Profile: Ronald Mutero
My name is Ronald Mutero. I am a field guide at Sabi Sabi Selati Camp. Growing up living from the land has given me quite a substantial understanding of wildlife and animal behaviour.
I have always been fascinated by nature in many ways that I decided to study towards understanding nature more among other things. I loved looking at nature photos from a young age and had a dream to one day be able to take photos myself and share with the whole world the beauty of nature. I am an amateur photographer and still learning more and it has always been my passion to take photos hence I joined the Social Media team at Sabi Sabi. To me one photo covers a story of a million words, a great way to educate and as well preserve and share memories. It is a great pleasure to be able able to offer my assistance to my guests with few pointers and great positioning for greater chances of making their photography a success.
