Charles Ndlovu

Charles has been fortunate to spend nearly his entire life in the African bush. His father was a game ranger, which meant a lot of trips into the bush for Charles during school holidays. After completing secondary school, Charles volunteered to assist the Hwange National Park research team. During the year he spent in this capacity, the senior ecologist on the project noted his potential and passion and hired him as a semi-skilled casual employee, and he spent the next four years working with researchers. In 1989 Charles became a trainee safari guide, pursuing the opportunity to realize his greatest love: sharing the wonders of the African bush with visitors in a manner that promotes conservation and ensures the welfare of wildlife.

Working his way up through the system over the next decade, Charles obtained his Professional Guide’s License in 2000. He especially enjoys taking guests on nature walks in the bush and sharing his in-depth knowledge of the land and its inhabitants. Charles is very proud
of his job and the responsibility it affords to help protect nature, and he does his best to make sure humans leave as little on the environment as possible. Always attempting to instill conservation-focused awareness in his guests, Charles pays attention to the smallest of things that make a big difference overall, like picking up even a small plastic wrapper from a toothpick. He is actively involved with the water pumps at the pans, ensuring that while water is provided for the animals, it is done with as little evidence of human presence in the bush as possible: no oil-contaminated soil, no litter and no diesel leaks.
