Andy M.

Gaborone, Botswana

I am a husband and a father who left my managerial position in retail to pursue tour guiding.

Growing up I enjoyed the outdoors, exploring and found the little things fascinating, I believe these are major contributing factors to my work today. Whenever I could I would take drives around Botswana to places I had never been to, or move from location to location aimlessly looking for a new adventure and surely enough there was always something worth finding, and new experiences worth having. During my journeys I learned that there my country has so much character that is worth exploring and there is often to need to travel too far to find something unique. Whenever I get the chance I take my wife and kids on short drives around where we live in search for something different, and through talking to the villagers we always take with us a memorable experience.

Interacting with new people, imparting knowledge and talking about my country are things I have always enjoyed, seeing this, my wife pushed me into trying out tour guiding in Gaborone. Mind you this has very few people doing it south of Botswana as there is only nature guiding that is dominant north of the country. I decided to give historical and cultural guiding a try, and there was no turning back.

Botswana has a rich history and it gives me great pride and pleasure sharing it. Taking international clients on day trips around Gaborone and more has been a thrilling adventure that I look forward to each tour, mostly because they get to see Botswana through the eyes of a local. I can build customised itineraries around a client's wish list and schedule incorporating these into their chosen tour of interest. Furthermore I can combine my different tours for a full experience of what will be a touch of Botswana.
