Super Sande
Born 1973
Super grew up and schooled in Sinyawe in eastern Botswana.
He is married and has 5 children and he has built a home for his family in Gweta.
Before Super came to Jack’s Camp he had worked at an Animal Game farm dealing with orphaned animals in Francistown. He has also worked with animal count for Birds and Games.
Ralph Bousfield is one of the senior shareholders of Jack Camp (the heart of the Safari Company Uncharted Africa.) ‘Jack’s’ has a special place in Ralph’s heart for it is where, long before the safari business was established, that his father used to ‘hide away’ for peace and quiet in a hammock under the whispering palm trees on the ancient lake bed. Super worked for some years with Ralph and, in time, qualified formally as a Botswana guide and started, in 1994, his present career as a Safari Guide, still with Uncharted Africa.
His guiding skills and experience of tourism has taken him on travels to England and Italy where he has represented Botswana.
Apart from being a very knowledgeable guide he has also picked up other skills. One cannot be a safari guide in the remote corners of Botswana without acquiring a range of other skills including, bricklaying, plumbing, and fixing cars.
Today Super is training new guides!
“It has been a long journey,” Super says, ”Everything I do I have to learn how to do it”
He spends his free time at his farm in Gweta where he has goats, cows and horses and he is an inquisitive farmer who is experimenting with crops whose seeds are not attractive to birds. This has been very successful. The latest experiment is planting chilies in his fields to keep the elephants out.
Super is a true believer in lifetime learning.
