Nick Wootton, Manager

Nick was born in Kenya in 1992. From a young age he has always had a passion for the African bush and its different cultures. Taking an interest in snake diversity as a teenager, he realized work in the bush was his calling, and has since worked for various eco-camps in Kenya. After completing his FGASA level 1 in 2011, he later decided to return to South Africa for a 2 year stint, completing courses in lodge management, guiding and animal tracking including CATHESSETA level 2. Lorenzo Zanacchi is supporting him.

Crystal Coetzer,

Crystal was born in South Africa in 1989. She entered higher education, in the field of conservation and natural resources management and worked in the hospitality industry part-time.
