Frank Mochaba

Frank’s passion for bush life steered him to Career Dreams College in 2007 to study his Professional Safari Guide Course. After completing this with distinction, Frank went for more practical training with Wilderness Safaris. In June 2008 he was employed by Desert and Delta safaris at camp Moremi within the Moremi Game Reserve as a professional guide until August 2015, when he moved to Bush Ways Safaris. He was based in the Khwai concession area at Sango Safari Camp as a Head Guide, where he also did his training on rifle and weapon handling for his Lead Walking Guide qualification. Frank returned to Desert and Delta Safaris in September 2017 where he was based in Savuti Safari lodge within the Chobe National Park. He then joined the mobile safari industry where he explored all the National Parks and Game reserves in Botswana. Besides acquiring invaluable first-hand information and experience, Franks won Best Guide Award. This led to his company Okavango Passions, now trading as Semunyeni Safaris meaning ‘together as one’.

Frank still spends some quality time at the ‘Cattle Post’. This is a gathering point in his traditional village, where he educates other farmers about conservation and living with – and protecting – wild animals instead of hunting.
