Cisco Letio, Head Guide, Island Mobile Safaris

Cisco Letio

Head Guide

I have been lucky and fortunate to call Botswana, and particularly the Okavango Delta, my home for many years. Having grown up in this beautiful area has rewarded me with life and guiding experiences I enjoy and live every day. Having spent in excess of 20 years in the Okavango Delta and other wonderful parks and reserves guiding has been a privilege that has humbled me and inspired me to share my life with those that want to experience it.

Most of my career experience and training was with Wilderness safaris, I spent about 12 years guiding and managing some operations with them. Some of my biggest career highlights is having been certified as a Professional Guide, specialising in walking safaris, mokoro poling and boating.

I joined the Island Safaris team as it has provided me with a remarkable opportunity to further my experience and passion for mobile safaris, and allows me to be closer to my family in Maun. Sharing my passion for Botswana’s wild places and uniqueness inspires me to strive to teach, and share my love for this country, it certainly is a place worth experiencing.

Sekaimang Mathapa

Boat Mechanic and Guide

In 1997 I ventured in the tourism and hospitality industry. I started as a scullery, then a barman until I went to school and studied guiding and mechanics.

My inspiration was Mr Sean Watson. Through his mentorship I yearned for more and became more open minded.

Not to blow my own trumpet, but I fit pretty well in all departments
