Meet Our Driver Guides – Introducing Jonah!

Being a driver guide is not the easiest job in the world, but it’s arguably one of the best. When your office is out in the wild and you get the chance to see wild animals on a daily basis, it’s no wonder that our driver guides love their job.

Somak’s dedicated driver guides are knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to Africa’s untamed wilderness, giving you an informative and in-depth safari experience. Since many of our guides are locals and have grown up in the area, they can offer a unique insight into the many animals you’ll see and the new cultures you’ll be immersed in.

They are always ready to impart their expertise and enthusiasm to their guests as they drive around the African plains.
