Many of you know Vusa and it is wonderful to see the complete progression of this local hero who made it through the local Ngamo school to become Imvelo’s Head Guide. Vusa grew up in Ngamo village near Bomani and Camelthorn Lodges adjacent to Hwange National Park. As a boy looking after for the family’s cattle, he dealt firsthand with the threat posed by elephant and lion from the Park. Today, that same dangerous big game represents his livelihood, bringing visitors from around the world. Armed with a diploma in travel and tourism, he was first employed by Imvelo as a trainee guide and a year later he wrote the intermediate guides exam set by National Parks. Thus began ten years of dedication before he passed the intense written and practical examinations for Zimbabwe’s Professional Guides licence – he is the first from his community to achieve this qualification. As a local lad, he brings a special touch and remarkable insights when taking guests around his home area, and he has become a role model for the next generation.
