Specialist guide: Squack Evans

Squack Evans was born and brought up on a large cattle ranch in south-eastern Zimbabwe, and it was here where he first began his chosen life in the African bush. Born into a family that has been in Africa for 4 generations, his great grandfather hunted for ivory from Northern Rhodesia to Kenya, and his grandfather, Jasper Evans, and the rest of the family have pioneered camel safaris and conservancy in Kenya for generations, it seems only natural for him to follow in their footsteps.

Educated at a remote boarding school in the bush of Zimbabwe the love affair with all things wild continued. After leaving school he worked in Kenya running camel assisted walking safaris for his uncle Simon Evans through the remote northern areas of the country and followed this with travel to Europe and Australia.

After sitting the first of the Zimbabwean professional guides examinations he took up guiding full time in Hwange National Park with Wilderness Safaris and continued his licensing examinations through till 2001 when the call of longer walking safaris beckoned and he returned to East Africa to run Sabuk lodge and Camel safaris once again. Based in Laikipia for two and a half years he guided many safaris in the area as well as trips to the Mara and elsewhere in Kenya.

Following the upheaval in Zimbabwe, his remaining family there moved across the border to Zambia and Squack took up a job in Game ranch management near them. After a year, East Africa once again beckoned, this time running Chada Katavi for Nomad Tanzania, one of the most remote National Parks left today. He ran Chada for the following 2 years and his professionalism, knowledge, and infectious enthusiasm became a major feature of the Chada experience, helping to really put it on the map as a stand alone western Tanzania destination. His particular love is walking safaris, where he enthrals guests with his attention to detail on all aspects of the bush.
