I am one of Deception Valley lodges first tracker and bushman employees. As far as I can recall I started working at DVL in 1999.
Although I can not read or right I can speak naru and Afrikaans fluently and being part of the tourism industry helped me gain a lot more self confidence and general knowledge regarding people and the places outside Botswana.
I play an important roll in the team as I learn and teach the younger newer bushman trackers how to track the pride of lions as well as give them the knowledge and skills about our forefathers so that our culture could be preserved and not get lost in todays modern society.
It gives me great pleasure to show of my tracking skills to tourist as well as give them some insight as to how my father and grandfather use to live in a remote dry place such as the Kalahari.
I was born in Botswana, grew up in Botswana and therefore my heart lies with my country.
Our people take care of each other and this compassion among one another is what makes me love my country so much.
