Lemme Dintwa

Partner Guide / Safari Planner

They say you need 10,000 hours of practice to become world-class in any field. If like me, you spent your childhood holidays in the bush tending to your family livestock, you would have racked up those “wildlife tracking” practice hours pretty quickly. 

Keeping my family’s wealth from any potential predator threat will do that to anyone. Instead of provoking a strong distaste for the wilderness, spending all this time in the bush only fostered my life-long love for nature. 

My time in school developed a curiosity in geography as well as a mostly self-taught art of astronomy. This opened my eyes and made me appreciate the fact that a desk job would never suit me, that I needed to follow my soul into nature. I have been involved with conservation programmes like BirdLife Botswana, where I would spend days camping in remote nature reserves in order to count birds. This began my steady climb to the man I am today. I have nurtured my guiding career since 2007. 

I have guided in all three of the ecosystems in which Wilderness Safaris operates in Botswana – Okavango Delta, Linyanti and Kalahari – and also have experience in managing camps. Positive, outgoing and adventurous – we wouldn’t put skydiving beyond – I’m always willing to go the extra mile. I have a strong interest in photography, which has also helped me lead many successful safari excursions.

Thuto Moutloatse

Partner Guide / Safari Planner

Voted by America’s OUTSIDE magazine in 2014 among “seven best adventure guides on the planet”, Thuto Moutloatse evolved, rather than simply grown up, around wildlife. His passion runs so deeply that one of his guests once observed: “He seems to really understand the profound position he is in – that he lives our “trip of a lifetime” every single day.”

Thuto’s privilege to live in and amongst the pristine was due to his father’s involvement in tourism and conservation and a school career spent in the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains in neighbouring South Africa. His first four years at Wilderness Safaris were filled with guiding in the Linyanti before being “set free” in 2006 to satisfy his insatiable interest in the diverse ecosystems of Botswana as a private guide. This enhanced his natural sense for guiding and he is now frequently requested by both tour operators and repeat guests from all over the world.

As for his specialities, the list is endless. From birding and tracking to astronomy and wildlife photography, his knowledge is impressive; he conducts photographic safaris and freely shares information on even the more technical aspects. Thuto’s larger-than-life personality makes for memorable family safaris.

In fact, there is never a dull moment with Thuto. He may have you down on your hands and knees looking at the tiny critters, or you could find yourself tracking big game on foot, and “breakfast-on-a-spade” to dinner under the stars are likely to be of his creation. Going on safari with Thuto will have your mind reeling from the experience. Chances are you will return home having acquired a great deal of knowledge as well as a new friend; but while you are with him, don’t forget to ask him about Tour de Tuli and why he loves seafood so much.

Tebla Mokgosi

Partner Guide / Safari Planner

Tebla was born and raised in Maun, Botswana. His love for the bush was planted in him while he was a young boy when he started going on frequent family trips to the Maun Educational Park and Moremi Game Reserve. He also accompanied his grandfather on his trips through the delta delivering supplies from Maun. 

He started his journey as a professional guide when he signed up for a professional guiding course through the Botswana Wildlife Training Institute on a quest for adventure. His wilderness journey has included guiding at some of Botswana’s top wildlife areas including the Moremi Game Reserve, Chiefs Island (Mombo), Linyanti, Chitabe, Vumbura and most recently, Abu Camp. 

Tebla has developed a keen interest in wildlife photography which he has been able to develop through Olympus cameras and Pangolin Safaris Photo Workshops. He also loves sharing his passion for wildlife, confidently assisting guests with their photography and getting the right angle for that perfect shot! He regularly shares his wild shots through social media on Instagram (@teblamokgosi) and also on Facebook (Wild Shots by Tebla Mokgosi). 

Tebla’s love of travel has taken him to countries including Namibia, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia, Ethiopia, South Africa as well as Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore.
