We are very happy to introduce our Team to you.
Savannah Southern Safaris is a family-owned business, founded by Chiinga Siavwapa who has been a professional nature guide since the year 2004. Since his early childhood, he explored the bush and the Falls on his own, and to him, that was the genesis of his relationship with the wild. Since he left us in 2019 his nephews and wife continue running the business. Anyone who met Chiinga immediately felt his passion for nature around and all other matters concerning our environment and society. As a family, we will continue developing your Livingstone experience in his memory. We continue sharing our love for nature and the cultural heritage and creative side of this town with you.
Chiinga believed, that we all have a strong responsibility to ensure the youth in this country get a fair chance to participate in development.
In the past years, he had trained youth in guiding, activity booking and general knowledge in the hospitality industry. Some have stayed with Savannah Southern Safaris and become part of the ‘Savannah family’ others found job opportunities elsewhere in the industry. We continue giving opportunities to the young generation and together with our partners we work on education and training programs to ensure future sustainable development of our town. Our main partner here is Munga Eco Lodge. With the forming Sikaneta Trust, we are planning an Education Centre in Chiinga’s memory.
