Kelvin Zulu

Kelvin Zulu was born and raised in Mfuwe, where he still lives with his wife, Josephine. After attending Chiwawatala Primary School and Mfuwe Day Secondary School, Kelvin’s fondness for wildlife led him to working as spotter at Mfuwe Lodge in 2008. With help from a mentor guide and sponsorship and support from Chipembele Wildlife Education Trust, Kelvin took and passed his guide exam in 2010 and worked two years as a transfer guide before being promoted to full guide, where he continues to appreciate the landscape and natural history of his home country.

Peter Milanzi

An interest in wildlife began at an early age for Peter Milanzi when he moved in 1994 to Mfuwe, with his father and twin brother, Misheck (who is also a guide!). Peter completed his schooling in Lusaka, where he enjoyed math and the sciences and after graduation worked as a bartender at several safari camps in the Luangwa Valley. Inspired by his father and spurred on by his brother, he became a guide in 2003 and passed his bushwalking exam in 2006. Peter loves spending time with his wife, Diana, a teacher, and their two daughters, Chimwemwe and Orient.


Fannuel Banda

Fannuel Banda was brought up in Mfuwe by his grandparents and still lives there with his wife and two sons. His passion for wildlife developed early in life and he was encouraged to pursue his interest by his family, gaining experience in the safari industry by working for several safari companies in the area. He once appeared on the BBC programme "No Going Back" when working as a foreman for a lodge that was being built and became a local celebrity! Fannuel began working as a transfer driver but soon passed his guide's exam and the following year qualified as a walking guide and has been enjoying his life’s work ever since.
