Presenter try-out time again.

The beginning of a new year is a perfect time for us at WildEarth and Safari Channel to embrace the future and make decisions about improving our product. One of these decisions is to improve the base of the organisation, the presenters and to do this we are having try-outs this coming weekend.

The first Guide, Johann Lombard will be arriving on Friday 14th January and he will be doing the Saturday Morning safari.

Johann has extensive guiding experience in many areas around Southern Africa including Namibia and Botswana. He has spent time here in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, it was at this time that he crossed paths with both Craig and myself some years ago. Johann has been involved with guide training in most areas that he has worked and it is in this context that he had some experience with wildlife film productions, being part of some interesting survival and guide training shows. Johann's extensive knowledge and passion will no doubt shine through.

On Sunday 15th January, Andre Kruger will be here for the AM safari to showcase his skills and knowledge. Andre started his guiding career with rafting and canoe safaris on the mighty Zambezi River, a very wild river of Africa, populated with huge numbers of Hippo, Crocs, Buffalo and Elephant. Andre then moved down to the Greater Kruger National Park area where he conducted walking safaris in the Timbavati and Manyeleti. For the past couple of years he has been skippering yachts on the Indian Ocean and along with being a RYA Yachtmaster, he has represented South Africa with the President's team in saltwater angling and saltwater fly fishing.

WE wish them both good luck for their drives.
