Lawrence, Safari Serengeti Camp
Lawrence Ghadwe joined Nomad in 2011 and found it to be a refreshing change from the larger hotels where he began his management career. Born and raised in the little village of Usa River near Arusha, Lawrence was exposed to the African travel business during his early years. A professional hunter by trade, his father often used to bring his friends from all over the world home and Lawrence enjoyed meeting people from all walks of life and various nationalities and hearing their stories. As he grew older, he would help his parents entertain and found he had a knack for delighting people.
Lawrence enjoys his job most because of the people he works with meets on a daily basis. The fun and friendly atmosphere in the camp together with the diverse challenges he faces here makes his job interesting.
The thing that gives him the biggest headache is when the weather is not playing ball – big storms through camp that keep him on his toes, and wildly unpredictable conditions which affect the movement of the migration. These are the times he might dream of a conventional desk job, but not for long!
To Lawrence, the key to making someone’s safari a success is in the detail: taking into account people’s varied interests, ages and nationalities to make the trip truly personal.
