Fausto Ciardo Chania Watts

Fausto "l'Africano" Ciardo, Manager

Fausto was born in Italy in 1976. After finishing his studies he decided that city life was not for him,
so he decided to travel and experience different cultures. He lived in South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Madagascar and Kenya
before coming to Tanzania, to Selous Game Reserve and feels that it is amazing how living in the wild can give him so much satisfaction.
Lorenzo Zanacchi is supporting him at Impala camp.

Chania Watts, Assistant Manager

Chania was born in UK in 1993 and grew up in Kenya.
She developed a passion for the African bush and all it had to offer.

She completed all her schooling in Kenya and has recently returned from South Africa, having completed her fgasa level 1 qualification.


Most of the Staff at Selous Impala have obtained certificates in the PADI course for Emergency First Response.
