My name is Aobakwe also known as Xhega to friends and working colleagues.
I am from Ghanzi and have a wife three children whom stays with me at the staff accommodation while I am working at deception valley lodge.
Deception valley lodge has been my home and family for the last four years now.
My duties and responsibilities at work are tracking animals, sharing my skills and techniques with other people regarding my ancestor’s way of life -the Naru bushman.
General lodge maintenance as well pick ups, drop offs and assisting guest to and from their rooms at night.
I love my job due to the fact that it brings me joy and pride showing others my peoples way of life as it use to be as well as preserving nature for the next generation and just over all sharing of knowledge as this is the only way of life I know and it is my way of contributing to my country and people.
Botswana is an amazing country and the reason I love my country so much is not just because I am born here but because I can live freely and be who I am and who I want to be.
