Lazi was born and raised in Bobonong Village in Botswana’s Tuli Block area. During weekends and school holidays he visited and helped his parents on a farm called Toevlugsoord Ranch along the Limpopo River. Whilst there his brother (who works at Chitabe Camp as a manager) always took him out on patrol. On many occasions they encountered elephant, eland, impala, kudu, hippo, and most of the small game animals. This really inspired Lazi and instilled in him a great love of the bush.

Upon completing senior school, Lazi was determined to study something in the nature and conservation field. He enrolled at the Speciss College in Bulawayo in Zimbabwe and graduated with a Diploma in Tourism Management and Hospitality. He returned to Maun and started working as a travel consultant. This was excellent experience for him, as it allowed him to learn what guests are looking for on their travels, but it did not satisfy his urge to get into the bush.

Lazi continued with his guiding studies and shortly after this joined Chitabe Camp as a trainee guide. Subsequently, Lazi has guided at Little Vumbura, DumaTau and Vumbura Plains. He now holds a Level 2 guide and walking qualification. He has been guiding for Wilderness Safaris for nine years.

Lazi has a particular interest in tracking, ecology and nature conservation.
