Michael Appalsamy

After finishing a degree in business management, I could not help but chase my passion and desire to be outdoors. After spending the past few years in the bush as a conservation guide and camp manager, my life has changed through my experiences with nature and wildlife.

The idea of exploring remote and untouched areas along with guests who are hungry to learn, truly excites me. I strive to share my passion with guests and expose them to a level of appreciation for the big moments, small moments and everything in between.

Memorable encounter

Witnessing my first Wildebeest crossing of thousands of animals. That was something I only ever dreamed of seeing and during this first experience, the sounds, the smells and everything I was seeing absolutely blew my mind!

An interesting fact about me

In my spare time at home, I love to play the guitar and I’m going for lessons to play the drums as well! I love a good jam session.
