Handry has been with Djuma for nine years now. He began work as a gardner for the staff quarters. He has worked himself up to being a guide which our guests love. He has excelled in passing all his exams for F.A.G.A.S.A. and is great at delivering our guests a great time. He was born and grew up in Hluvukani.

Ephraim has been working with us as the guide at Galago Camp and has been with the company for around 8 years now.
Him and William are feared due to their phenomenal hit rate when it comes to finding leopard. A trait which the guests love and makes all us other guides jealous.

William was born in Hluvukani, where he grew up and completed his schooling before moving into the bush.
