“Kicheche is proud that 100% of their team of guides are of silver standard – when just 5% of the guides in Kenya can boast this accolade”

Another extremely popular guide, Jimmy is also incredibly hard-working as well as a tremendous spotter. Whether it is bee eaters, hyena pups or serval, Jimmy misses nothing. It is a ridiculous CV for one so comparatively young.

What guests say‘ We arrived at the airstrip and saw a line of vehicles and at the end a smarter, better designed one with a Maasai, resplendent in full colourful livery. We hoped that he would be our guide for our honeymoon, he was and we will never thank him enough.’

Jimmy’s best wildlife moment to date:

‘I was guiding two keen photographers who were almost obsessed by cats yet that morning, in an area I had never seen them, we found a pair of wild dogs, it was astonishing’.
