We work with a number of private safari guides who are experienced in leading both small and large groups of guests on safaris and expeditions. Our guides enhance your safari by bringing lifelong experience of the African bush, the animals that roam it, and the culture of the people who live within it.

Zarek Cockar ~ Africa Safari Guide

Born and raised in Kenya, and having taken every opportunity to go camping, hiking or on safari from a young age, I have developed a deep connection to East Africa’s wilderness areas.  A safari with me is defined by my wide-eyed wonder at the natural world, from hopping through muddy puddles looking for frogs to slowly roving a riverbank looking for an elusive leopard.  When I am not guiding or helping to design an itinerary from the office, I often pack a tent in the car and head off on safari with my family or friends.

As a “Gold Level” guide and a board member of the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association (KPSGA) I am familiar with local wildlife, cultures, and conditions. I also hold a “Level 2” qualification with the Field Guides Association of Southern Africa (FGASA), and a “Level 3 Track & Sign” qualification with Cybertracker, a non-profit network for wildlife trackers. These widely-recognized qualifications have provided me with useful tools to interpret the signs and behaviours of wildlife we encounter on safari.
