Jason Nott of Namibia comes from a well-known family of “nature conservators” who have been involved in development issues in Namibia for decades, and his love for wild Africa was instilled in him at a young age. He spent a year of study in England, returning to Namibia run a safari for his fellow students at the age of 19, then studying for a Travel and Tourism Management degree at a local university. After managing a remote game lodge in Namibia, he became a full-time guide and has developed excellent relationships with local communities all across northwest Namibia, meaning that he and his guests are welcomed at these fascinating communities. Jason met his wife, Amber, when she was in Namibia on a study abroad program as part of her degree in Zoology. Both Jason and Amber have a passion for wildlife and its protection, and a strong belief that this is best achieved through the development of communities. Jason is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable birder as well as a wonderful traveling companion.
It was a pleasure to get to know Jason. He has a deep love for Namibia and had wonderful stories to share of his experiences camping throughout the country. He had thorough knowledge of the wildlife, plant life, and history/government of Namibia and interacted well with all of us.Jean A., Hotchkiss, CO
