Meet the guide

Poniso Shamakuni was born in Kasane, Botswana. It was at his school’s wildlife club that he first discovered his love of nature, and this enthusiasm remained into adulthood. After secondary school, he joined a safari company, passing the guide training programme with flying colours. He has since held posts at Chobe and Moremi National Parks, and self-funded his further training in walking safaris and rifle handling. You will find him leading private guided safaris for A&K in the heart of the Okavango Delta, as well as in Chobe, Moremi and Zambia. Poniso puts clients at ease with his calm manner and warm sense of humour. He has a special interest in birds, and in his spare time enjoys reading, listening to music and playing football.
