Hooked and Cooked On Safari

Caitlin and Siraaj are a dynamic couple who have lived and worked in the bush for over 10 years. They met at work in Mana Pools, over the years they have created a niche for both of their passions.  As the camp Manageress, Caitlin was in responsible for the menu, the orders, and of course the delicious recipes; something she took pride in.  Siraaj guided all his guests with skill and enthusiasm and every group he guided left with amazing experiences in the bush.  Together, Caitlin and Siraaj can make your safari a delicious, unforgettable adventure.  

“Siraaj Gardner is one of the top up-and-coming Professional Guides that Zimbabwe has to offer.  With over 10 years of working experience in the bush, he can make any trip in nature safe and interesting.  He has a passion for walking amongst Zimbabwe’s wildlife, photography, birding, and is especially enthusiastic about fishing.  Siraaj was raised in safari camps, so his passion was borne from a young age. He is excellent in tracking, has eyes peeled for any sign of wildlife and can see the perfect swirl of a fish ready to be caught.”
