Tarry and Devon are from a remote wilderness area in Northern Zululand, South Africa. They have always worked in the conservation / ecotourism industry. Prior to starting at Sanctuary Swala Camp, Tarry and Devon took a year off work in order to travel through Africa in an old Toyota Land cruiser, exploring wilderness areas, getting lost, birding and learning about other people’s cultures.

Obedi was working as a driver before he joined Sanctuary just over a decade ago. Today he is the camp's storekeeper and has exceeded his own expectations by finding and following a career path. He enjoys performing his daily duties, which include meeting and greeting the guests. If he wasn't working for Sanctuary he believes he would still be at home farming.
