Mashine Joseph Swai
Mechanic/ Safari Guide
Mashine is called Mashine for a reason. Our head safari guide, has the uncanny ability to find wildebeest, leopard, lion and “animals on request”. Mashine finds it tough to get to camp of an evening, as he wants to stay out there looking for his favourite animal – the elusive leopard. Originally a mechanic by trade, Mashine maintains and fixes our vehicles and does an enormous amount of administrative work behind the scenes.
