Benson is an exceptional man, calmly assured, pragmatic and in control. His passion is Africa and its wildlife. Born in Zimbabwe he was the first black Zimbabwean guide not involved with the Parks Board to obtain a professional guide licence. He has risen through the ranks, developing great managerial and leadership qualities.
His excellent bush skills, understanding and integrity, along with his sense of humour and big smile keeps his guests entertained every minute of their safari, with the added appeal of his understanding of the cultural side of African life. Having attained a senior managerial position with Wilderness Safaris he has, with their blessing and support, set up his own company, Ngoko Safaris, to operate as an independent safari guide.
