Charles is based in the Makalolo Concession in Hwange as well as Ruchomechi in Mana Pools. He is a fully qualified Professional Guide of Zimbabwe which allows him to conduct walking safaris.
Our safari guides were great! They were awesome at spotting animals, birds, reptiles, plants, and had a tremendous fund of knowledge about them all. They taught us a lot, and it was really exciting to be so close to those animals! Favorites were the elephants, the lions, and the buffalo, but EVERYTHING was a thrill.
We enjoyed meeting Esther, our guide for Victoria Falls, who also took us to the market there. We loved the elephant encounter and the ride, and we learned a lot from our elephant handler/driver, Farai. We also met Sylvester the cheetah, who they raised from a tiny kitten, and he was awesome. The helicopter ride over the falls was fabulous! We feel very privileged to have enjoyed the unspoiled natural beauty of Chobe and Hwange parks, and all of the amazing wildlife protected and habitats preserved there. We intend to support the Wilderness Safari organization in their responsible ecotourism.
We took hundreds of photos, but here are 2 of my favorites: a baby elephant we saw at Chobe, and a photo of the 3 of us at Boulders to see the African penguins. There are so many more, but not enough space to attach them all. (Actually I tried to send more, but the files were too big, I will send more in a separate email after this). Julia has put together a slide show for her class, and I will send that to you on a CD (unless you suggest a different way of sending it).Read More

We had Charles for a guide, and he was wonderful! Actually, he greeted us wearing an Africa Adventure hat because he had shown Mark Nolting and his family around. We went to the hide to see elephants, spent one whol e morning tracking rhinos on foot, and saw so many different animals. Some special moments were seeing a baby giraffe with the umbilical cord still attached, and having sundowners one night while we watched over three hundred buffalo kick up dust on their way to the water hole. Probably the funniest thing that happened was that we were getting ready for sundowners another night. We had heard reports of lions, but did not have much luck. As Charles poured a gin and tonic for the other guest, we saw two lionesses walking down the road. He quickly had everyone back in the vehicle. My husband held the meatballs and dip, I had the wine, and another woman had her G & T.Read More
