Brushing Up on our Bush Smarts

Samson Parashina, President of the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust and Campi ya Kanzi safari guide, particularly enjoyed the week of review. "When I was young, it was always my dream to become a guide," he said. "It was so nice to go back to training last week, to review all that I know, and to really connect with nature. I feel like that's where I belong -- following the animal tracks and smelling the trees. Nature is my home. I wish I had been born one hundred years ago so that I could have delved even deeper."
