Hi I would just like to introduce myself. I am Shelley a British safari and lodge manager who has been working in eco tourism and conservation managing lodges and the tourism side of safari reserves for 9 years. Ex aid worker who worked on humanitarian mine action and human trafficking for 25 years. African wildlife and conservation are my passions and give me a sense of peace after many years in war torn countries. I have lived and worked in Cameroon, DRC Congo, Malawi, Uganda and now Ethiopia. I have visited Mozambique and Namibia and just on my next trip to Kenya

My dream is to one day live and work in Zimbabwe.

Welcome @Shelleyp I am sure you have one or two stories to tell with that resume!

@Shelleyp. Welcome Shelley. I hope conservation continues to give you a sense of peace and it'll be really good to hear from you. What are you doing in Ethiopia? (No need to answer that if you don't want - it's a nosy question and nobody ever asks me what I am doing in Thailand!)

Waiting again... for the next time again

Many thanks to all who who sent very welcoming messages. Very much appreciated.

I am a manager of the Bale Mountain Lodge in Bale Mountain National Park, home to the endemic Ethiopian wolves and many more exciting endemic species

 

Looking forward to be part of the discussions and meeting new people

@Shelleyp Hi Shelley - nice to "see" you again too!  Not sure you can figure out who I am from my photo here but I'm the one with the missing camera charger who was there in February :-)
