Lazarus Petrus was a Children in the Wilderness camper who progressed through the Wilderness Safaris Namibia training system, to become arguably the most qualified barman in Namibia - he has an Honours degree in Tourism! He is currently the Doro Nawas airstrip supervisor, where, based on guest feedback, arrivals and departures have become even more fun, especially thanks to the new coffee station he has installed!

Map Ives, National Rhino Coordinator for the government of Botswana and environmental director for Wilderness Safaris, sits down with Stuart Butler to discuss the reintroduction of rhino into northern Botswana...  'When I first saw the Delta about 35 years ago, I thought, “This is it, I’m not going any further.” They’ll have to bury me in the clay here, and I just hope I can leave this place in a better way than it was when I arrived.'

Meet Tom Satau, Vumbura Plains' Employee of the Month: "Tom is hard working & always available to help. He never classifies jobs as his & not his. This month with no maintenance man Tom was always an immediate extra hand. Every morning Tom checks the boardwalk for hippo & elephant damage. He also helps out FOH when he is on mokoro duty, bringing out the food from the kitchen at tea-time. He helps the camp hands with their duties like putting out the lanterns & emptying the bins."
