relationship to Sebenzani Safaris
Sebenzani is a recently established booking agency in Texas, owned by a husband and wife team who I have guided in Africa many times, hunting, photo, fishing. They have engaged me as their African "partner" to both market hunts and more specifically to guide their clients. All 100% above board. These folks are doing it for their love of Africa and not for the financial returns (money is not an issue for them) they want to provide a genuine professional service based on the experiences, good and bad, they have had themselves. The website is still being developed, should be up pretty soon now.
