Jovan van Leeuwen's Zambian Adventure

Who is Jovan? 

Jovan van Leeuwen matriculated very successfully from Olyfkrans College in 2017.

Jovan was a member of the Voortrekkers, similar to scouts until he finished his schooling.  Jovan spent many weekends and school holidays working on the Breede River, helping conservation groups patrolling and monitoring activity on this mighty river, home of our own group of Zambezi sharks.  We have known Jovan since he was a young boy and we have had the privilege to watch him grow into a very caring and responsible young man.

In the last few weeks Jovan departed South Africa for the wilderness of Zambia. He was invited by the management of Camp Nkwazi to be assistant tour guide and he also assists with the day-to-day maintenance at the Camp. The time that he spends there will be up to 6 weeks during their high season.

We are very proud of Jovan and hope he will continue on his journey of conservation.
