Dominic Cory, ex-Grey boy, passionate wildlife photographer, and an all-around great guy. Dom joined Ulovane in June 2020, right in the middle of these crazy COVID times, he was not going to let a global pandemic dull his dream of becoming a guide and gave 110% during his time with us!

Growing up with a strong love for nature, we watched as Dom’s love grew in immense amounts throughout his course with us! After completing his Field Guide, Trails Guide, and Marine Guide course, Dom began his 6 months placement at Sibuya Game Reserve where he hopes to develop and grow his guiding skills. Dom shares with us in this video how he found Ulovane and why it ended up being one of the best experiences of his life so far.

This is Roelof Wiesner from HillsNek Safari Camp! Roelof completed his Apprentice Field, Trails, and Marine Guide course with us in July 2017 and went straight into guiding full time just next door on Amakhala Game Reserve!

As a photography enthusiast, Roelof is very in tune with nature and how to portray it to his guests. This won him Amakhala guide of the year in 2019! In this video Roelof shares some behind the scenes of working at a lodge and how it has changed his life!

Meet Adriaan Buitendach who completed his courses with us amidst the 2020 madness, and still opted to stay on for an additional Trails Guide course after he completed his Marine Guiding!

Adriaan has grown in leaps and bounds in his journey over the last year with us! When he started in January last year, he was incredibly shy and remained far away from any cameras! As you can see for yourselves, however, the personal growth he has made has been tremendous. In this video, Adriaan has shared his growth and best memories of his year with Ulovane!

Adriaan, you have an incredibly bright future ahead of you!
