Sibahle Sibanda

A fantastic guide who is absolutely legendary for his ability to spot wildlife, Sibs is famed as much for his big smile and exuberant personality as for his expertise in the wilderness. Introduced to the world of guiding by his brother, he has a natural affinity for wildlife and an absolute passion for conservation. With the renowned Zimbabwe guiding license (which takes 4 years to acquire) and 15 years of experience leading safaris, he has explored all corners of Hwange as well as Zambezi and Mana Pools national parks and the great Kalahari Desert, where he introduces visitors to the intriguing San people. Sibs loves bringing guests on walking safaris—especially among the legendary elephant herds of Hwange. Among his other favorite things? "I love watching the baby animals—they're so active and playful—and searching for big game among the huge camelthorn trees, and birding during the green season. It's just phenomenal." Fluent in seven languages, English, Tonga, Nambya, Ndebele, Zulu, Tswana, and Shona—the names alone are beautiful to say—Sibs is a wonderful guide and an unforgettable safari companion.
