Welcome to Isambane Camp

General Manager & Field Guide

Ivone Smith

All the way from Spain as a Graphic designer in 2017 I came to South Africa to take a break from the city life and from that day on I am proud to call South Africa home. I fell in love with all the creatures you can find here and of course through guiding I can expand and share the love of Nature and knowledge with the world.

Assistant Manager & Field Guide

Angela riley

Mother Nature is my greatest teacher. I am inspired by nature every day to create and learn more. My passion has always been about the natural world and capturing its beauty through photographs. There is never a dull moment out in the bush and I love sharing this part of the world with people through guiding.

Field Guide

Jordi woerts

All the way from Holland escaping the urban jungle and starting a new life in the South African bush. I have always been curious and fell in love with the unpredictability of nature. There is always something happening, no day is the same and there is always something to learn. I love to share my knowledge and passion with people from all around the world to create a positive impact on my surroundings, being a guide gives me the perfect opportunity to do so.

Field Guide

Matt foulsham

Originally from South Africa, I spent many years living abroad and working the “normal” 9 - 5 office job. I decided that I belong back in the African Bush and made the move to re-train as a certified field guide. My favourite thing about being in the bush is observing the unique interactions between the wildlife and more importantly, being able to share these incredible experiences with others.

Our small camp hero

Eunita Mokgalaka

I am from Phalaborwa, I have been in the bush for a year and a half. I was situated here in the bush because of work opportunity and as the time goes one I have become inspired by it's beauty. I have started to love animals and all the living things. I did learn more as I have experienced and I would like to share this with people all over the world so that maybe one day they will be like me and fall in love with Nature.
