Managers – George and Theresa

George and Theresa hail from Zimbabwe originally, where they have worked managing camps and guiding for many years. Arriving in Kenya in 2013, they managed Joy’s Camp in Shaba, where they became enthralled with the history and lives of George and Joy Adamson, the original conservationists. It is only fitting that they now call Elsa’s Kopje home, and continue to share with guests the magic of the Born Free story, and the beautifully rugged environment where it all began.

George and Theresa have three sons, who regularly visit Kenya. When they are not in the bush, you can very often find them on the Kenyan coast at their favourite place in Diani Beach.

Home in Meru National Park…

The National Park is one of the most beautiful in Africa, and apart from being home to plentiful lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant and rhino, it is known for its diversity of habitat and wildlife, including the rare and beautiful lesser Kudu. The guides know every stunning corner, from the palm fringed springs, to the sandy beaches of the Tana river. A birders paradise, Meru boasts over 450 species, as well surprising botanical treasures including the giant baobab tree and rare paper bark Albitzia. Our guides know the territory of the Meru lions and leopards, but also in a habitat so diverse, they know the medicinal properties of the unusual plants, are keen birders, and can show you the home of the tiny naked mole rat!
