Raised in a tribal village in the Okavango Delta, Onamile (Ona) Lekgopho was born “on safari.” Keen to pursue his passion for wildlife, he undertook formal training to become a safari guide immediately after finishing school in 2003. Since then, Ona has steadily increased his experience, leading safaris across Botswana and working as a safari camp guide. Ona's expertise, professionalism and passion for sharing his knowledge of Botswana's varied ecosystems makes him a great companion to have out in the bush. His skills include photography, tracking, ornithology and poling a mokoro—the traditional canoe that is his favorite method of transport in the Okavango Delta. Ona is also an authority on the country’s diverse cultures, and with his deep-seated curiosity, he’s likely to question you about your ethnic background and customs while sharing his own. Ona's training in auto mechanics also comes in handy if a safari vehicle happens to get stuck miles from camp. When he is not out looking for wildlife with guests, Ona is training and assessing junior rangers in Botswana.
Together, Natural Habitat Adventures and World Wildlife Fund have teamed up to arrange nearly a hundred nature travel experiences around the planet, while helping to protect the magnificent places we visit and their wild inhabitants.
