Melody Mnisi – WSO Assistant Programme Leader & Safari Guide
Melody undertook the Wild Shots Outreach programme in 2022. She loved learning how to use a camera and capturing memories and stories. This catalysed her love for being in nature. With support from the WSO Bursary Programme, she has trained to become a safari guide, successfully completing her FGASA Level 1 guide training in May 2023. She is one of only a very few female black field guides in South Africa, and she is now guiding for Koru Camp, a non-profit educational eco-camp in the Greater Kruger Area.
“I never could have imagined this is how my life could turn out! Now it’s my dream to introduce young people to nature and to inspire young African women like me to believe anything is possible”.
