Andy Hogg, South Luangwa National Park
Andy Hogg founded The Bushcamp Company in 1999, having grown up in Zambia’s Copperbelt he developed a relationship with the Luangwa while still at school. After studying in South Africa and having gained experience in the hospitality industry there, Andy returned to the Luangwa to work alongside Phil Berry at Chinzombo Lodge, where he eventually became General Manager. Having set up The Bushcamp Company Andy took over Chinzombo’s two bushcamps – Kuyenda & Chamilandu – (which are today still part of our portfolio) and built the company up to the six bushcamps and Mfuwe Lodge it operates today. Andy helped design and develop each of our camps and runs The Bushcamp Company with a loyal team of staff he has built up over the past decade. A qualified guide and very keen photographer, Andy is also responsible for our marketing and spends several months a year travelling the globe visiting tour operators and enjoying a few quieter moments fishing.
Manda Chisanga, South Luangwa National Park
Manda spent his formative years following his construction-worker grandfather as he traveled round Zambia. This fuelled Manda’s interest in his own country and, after a brief spell working in a bank and as a veterinary assistant, he became a safari guide. Manda has spent most of his guiding career in the southern area of South Luangwa National Park. Although he currently lives with his wife in Mfuwe, he has lived in all Zambian provinces and his compassionate nature means he is not afraid to address sensitive issues such as HIV/AIDS and is as comfortable discussing world politics as he is sharing amusing anecdotes about his time as a guide. His knowledge, respect and compassion earned him Wanderlust magazine’s inaugural Paul Morrison Guide Award in 2006; Manda used the money he received from the award to set up the Mfuwe Solar Cooker Project.
Peter Milanzi, South Luangwa National Park
Peter Milanzi grew up in Lochinvar National Park, where his father worked for the Park Authorities, so his interest in wildlife began at an early age. He moved to Mfuwe, with his father and twin brother, Misheck in 1994, but completed his schooling in Lusaka, where he enjoyed math and science. Upon graduating he worked as a bartender at several safari camps in the Luangwa Valley. Inspired by his father and spurred on by his twin brother who is also a guide, he became a guide in 2003 and passed his grade 1 walking exam in 2006. Peter mainly guides at Chindeni Camp in South Luangwa National Park, which he describes as being “great for aquatic birds and brilliant for leopard”! Having travelled to the UK in 2009 Peter would love to further his knowledge and explore some of Africa’s other parks. Peter’s wife and 3 year old daughter, Chimwemwe, live in Chipata, where his wife is a teacher.
Boaz Chizuwa, Lower Zambezi National Park
Boaz is renowned for his ability to track down the big cats, for his sense of humour and for being one of the first indigenous Zambians to be licensed as a safari guide, trained by the legendary Norman Carr and Cecil Evans in the South Luangwa and Kafue before settling down in the Lower Zambezi. Boaz’s ability to identify bird calls and obscure plants is legendary.
Dispenser Chizuwa, Lower Zambezi National Park
As with Daniel, Dispenser joined Chiawa Camp as a school leaver and he too is one of the Lower Zambezi's most experienced safari guides following Chiawa's in-house safari guide training program. He has also benefited however from his father Joshua's and uncle Boaz's extensive knowledge and experience; and each one of Zambia's first indigenous safari guides. Known for his rapier wit and practical jokes, as well as his keen senses in tracking down the most elusive big cat or small bird, Dispenser is a key player in Chiawa's formidable guiding team.
