Geordie Gartrell










Zululand born and bred, Geordie has 18 years’ experience in the bush in guiding, anti-poaching, reserve management, and as a guide trainer. He had a 6 year break when he went back to the city to study Photography for a year, and then moved on to teaching it for 5 years.

However, the love of the bush never left and at each opportunity he found himself back in the bush combining his passion for nature, open spaces and photography. Geordie is passionate about all aspects of nature and also has a keen interest archaeology and history, and enjoys sharing his knowledge and experiences with his guests.

Roan Ravenhill










Growing up on Game Reserve in the Waterberg Roan was privileged enough to be exposed to the magic of the bush from an early age. After completing his guiding qualification in 2007 he never looked back and soon discovered his passion for nature photography and challenged himself to capture the ‘unique magic of the Africa’, after a few years of working in the greater Kruger area he decided to move to Zimanga to share his knowledge of wildlife and wildlife photography.
