Sebastian Sakala - Guide
Sebastian is one of an exclusive club of guides in the Lower Zambezi that is licensed to carry out drives, walks and canoeing. Multi skilled and personable, Seb spent two seasons at Chiawa Camp before joining the Old Mondoro team where he will bring his welcome skill, choice and personality into the mix.
James Mweemba - Guide
James has been guiding since 2009, he started working in safari camps as a waiter and then discovered his passion for the bush. His favourite activity is canoeing, he loves getting out on the water and his best sighting was spotting his very first Aardvark at Old Mondoro in his first month with us after working in the bush for 10 years.
He has since seen his first pangolin at Old Mondoro (during the day time!) which he had always hoped to see but never thought he would. His favourite animal is the leopard which means he is working at the right camp! And he really enjoys birding.
Marshal Karafa - Guide
Marshal was born on the banks of the Zambezi River, starting off as a barman and working his way up to canoeing and game drive guide.
He loves to travel and aside from being passionate about his profession, especially canoeing, he has been fortunate enough to travel around both Africa and Europe - his favourite travels to date took him tracking gorillas in Uganda.
