With more than 15 years of experience in tourism, Samuel started his career in tourism as a conservationist. He has worked for various conservation programs that were aimed at protecting some of the endangered exotic wildlife species in Kenya. This gives him a wealth of knowledge in a wide array of wild animal species and their behavior. He is also aware of the impact of human interference in the animal’s habitat. Still a conservationist at heart, his work at Nelion Adventures gives our work invaluable insights when planning each tour, safari or expeditions.
