Beckson is one of our newest field guides at Jacis Lodges, but he comes with a wealth of experience! Get to know him a little!
Where did you work before/experience/training/background?
With my passion for wildlife I decided to do my training with Southern Wildlife College. After finishing my training I worked mostly in the Lowveld. I finally decided that it was time for a change and made my way to Madikwe Game Reserve.
What draws you to Jacis Lodges/Madikwe?
As I have worked in Madikwe Game Reserve before this was not a hard decision to make to come back. The fact that Jacis Lodges offer guides to grow with in the field was a big drawing factor for me as I would like to grow even further in my Guiding career. Madikwe Game Reserve is also a great Reserve to work on.
What do you love about your job?
It is a never ending learning opportunity for me. You always learn something new be it from fellow guides or even guest sometimes. Also the opportunity to meet so many different people from all over the world, and to be able to share this piece of paradise with them, and that we get the chance to teach them something new.
First impressions of your first day at work?
The staff were very friendly and very willing to help. The staff always seem happy and excited about what they do and this for me was very warming to be able to join this team.
What makes you get out of bed in the morning?
Its all about my love and passion for what I do. Being able to live out my dream and sharing this with guest from all over the world.
