Your Guides

Luke Beckmann

Owner / Guide

Luke Beckmann 33, was born in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.  From an early age of spending time on his grandfathers farm and watching “The Lion King” on repeat, he knew that the bush was where his heart lies.  From then on, everything he did was nature orientated and thus lead to his qualifications as a certified FGASA wildlife guide.  Luke has a strong calling to teach others about nature, from plants to the wild animals including the “Big 5”.  This is where the junior ranger camp was born, with Luke’s passion to teach the youth all about nature conservation and what our beautiful planet consists of and where on Earth we fit in.

Mandy Beckmann

Junior Ranger Camp Co-Ordinator

Mandy Beckmann 33, was born in the heart of settler country in a little town called Grahamstown based in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. She was raised on a farm which is where her love for the bush started. Mandy has since completed a Bachelor of Social Science degree, majoring in Psychology and Anthropology, as well as a PGCE teaching degree both obtained from Rhodes University. Other than wildlife, Mandy has a great passion for nurturing and educating young minds and believes that nature is a key ingredient in doing so.
