Specialist Guide Safaris with Geran Ellish

With some 15 years experience throughout Southern Africa’s and East Africa’s greatest Wildlife Reserves, Geran leads a Safari with exceptional knowledge, experience and interpretive skill gained throughout his comprehensive Guiding career.

He is a FGASA SKS Dangerous Animals and Dangerous Game qualified Guide and a National Assessor of Guides and firmly believes that the art of Guiding sometimes lies in knowing when not to say anything…

As one of a handful of guides who can Guide throughout South Africa, a wealth of knowledge and specific habitat habits await those who join him.

Every Guest wants to learn more and see more and as Guides our ultimate aim lies in Educating our Guests…..yet sometimes this can be felt more intensely by being a quiet participant, watching the magic that Africa so often conjures up.”

As the Shamwari Group Specialist Guide, Geran firmly believes that as a result of the Reserves within the Group, which encompass a myriad of habitats and experiences, from the Western and Eastern Cape to the Kruger National Park and Rwanda, that a true Safari, a journey, can be achieved.

He invites you to join him in a Safari in the style that you choose – be it a Photographic or his personal favorite – walking……”this is when we are reminded of the fragility of not only ourselves, but more importantly, of the areas and Wildlife in all forms that need us to experience them, in order to protect them.”

To be on Safari is to be in and experience the moment, something I believe our modern lives constantly challenge us in our ability to do and be aware of

Geran believes the essence of a great Safari is to have the ability to create your own programme and timetable – “our lives are so fast and action packed, why re-create this on a Safari, rushing from one aspect to the next……slow down……savour the scene in front of you, no matter what it is….appreciate it for what it is and represents……timelessness.”

A Specialist Safari is best experienced as a sole use, which includes the use of a vehicle & Geran as your guide. Please ensure you specify if you prefer sole use when you book your Specialist Safari.
