Benry Steyn & Bianca Erasmus
Bianca and Ben met in the bush as Field Guides in South Africa, and soon realised they shared a passion for nature, conservation, people, and adventure. Bianca’s experience of owning and operating restaurants, and Ben’s experience as a Senior Guide ensured their next step was to manage exclusive safari camps in Botswana. When the opportunity arose to become Walking Guides and Managers at Sanctuary Swala, set in one of the most beautiful conservation areas in Africa, they jumped at the chance.
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.
Raymond started out as a waiter just over eight years ago. While on leave he would study management skills and today he is the Service Manager at Sanctuary Swala. A large part of his job is meeting people from different countries which is something he really enjoys. He likes to remind his staff that the most important thing about their job is "hospitality and good service. Treat everyone as a VIP”.
