My name is Omphile, OP for short, I was born in Francistown, in the North Eastern part of Botswana .
With the tremendous growth in tourism I decided to leave I.T. and join the tourism industry. I went on to apply to the Botswana Wildlife Training Institute to train as a guide.
I started at Kanana Camp in 2011 and after an initial familiarisation period at Kanana, I was later transferred to Footsteps Camp. I have fallen in love with the camp because of its walking trails the camp offers, the basic touch of the camp, the inviting atmosphere, the challenges that prevail and conquered with ease, the friendly and caring staff and the feel of getting in touch with nature while doing his walking trails and the Young Explorers family safaris.
My name is Noah, I was born in Eastern Botswana in a village called Mmadinare and I was raised in Francistown. I started my career as a technician and soon after I decided to pursue my career as a guide as I have always had a passion for nature and the wilderness. Once I completed my guides course in 2014, I was privileged to be offered a job with Ker & Downey Botswana. I started guiding at Footsteps camp where I worked for a year and then I moved onto to Okuti where I find myself now. Growing up I have always had a passion for nature and that’s why in 2011, I changed careers from service technician to do a professional safari guide course and in 2014 Ker & Downey gave me that opportunity to work in the delta. I started at Footsteps and after a year I moved to Okuti.

My name is Moses and my friends call me Moozeh. I was born and raised in the North East of Botswana, a gold and copper mining city called Francistown. I did my first guides training course at Botswana Wildlife training Institute in Maun 2005.
I was a real town boy with a dream of working in the mine industry until I visited my friend in the Okavango Delta which turned me into a bush boy the minute I set my foot in this magical place. I started with Ker & Downey Botswana as a manager and professional guide in 2014 at Okuti, a camp which stole my heart. I felt at home because of the amazing atmosphere, service and flexibility of the staff. I later moved to Footsteps as a specialist guide leading young explorers’ family safaris and getting in touch with Mother Nature leading walking safari.
