About Us

Michael Jeh

I live in Brisbane but my heart beats in Africa. First went on safari in 2001 and that was the start of a deep love affair with the African bush. I’ve led many groups on safaris and it’s still as exciting for me as that very first time. It’s my job to sort out every little detail along the way so you can focus your energies on enjoying the unique safari experience we’ve created. I’m also a certified Ranger/Guide but there’s so much more to learn…some things can only be learned barefoot in Africa.  I usually team up with highly qualified rangers/guides in Africa, most of whom have forgotten more than I’ll ever know!
