THE TEAM
LEATATO OLE LENTIOL

Leatato is on of the last true bushmen from the Ndorobo tribe that used to roam over much of Kenya. Of Maasai origin, Alex first met him many years ago when he was working as a trader of skins own the Loita Hills.

 

When Alex set up his walking safaris across the Maasai Mara, Leatato helped him to do this. They have worked together ever since, and he is now an integral parter of Insiders Africa and Alex Hunter Safaris. He is a true gentleman. 

MOSES

Moses joined Alex's bush camp ten years ago as a bottle washer. Through hard work, dedication and ability, he is now the manager of Ol Pejeta Bush Camp and makes sure everything runs smoothly. He is the major-domo of camp.

DUMA

Another fine Maasai fellow, Duma actually comes from the Laikipa Plateau and is a Laikipiac Maasai. A great bushman, with a fun sense of humour, all trips with Duma are engaging and interesting. Duma - which means cheetah in Kiswahili - actually got his name because of his ability to work with these amazing creatures. Duma was instrumental in helping Simon King (of BBC wildlife documentary fame) and the story of Toki the Cheetah's tale. 

 

Before joining Alex Hunter Safaris, Duma was never too far away and acted as a research assistant for Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Duma first met Alex while tracking lions and has now been at Alex's side for over four years. Alex's head guide is always going above and beyond to ensure his guests are able to find even the most secretive of animals. Once you've heard Duma call in a black rhino or a cheetah with his amazing repertoire of voices, you will be astounded.
