Our Guides

At Planet Africa, our selected guides are our pride and joy. We invest substantially in training our guides as astute naturalists, local historians, conservationists, and of course vehicle mechanics. But more importantly, they are just fantastic travel companions. Our clients consistently report that their guide was the highlight of the safari, that they felt they were traveling with a friend who really took their needs into consideration. If you have a request for a specific skill, we will try to match you with the right guide. Your experience with us will be tailored, by you, from start to finish, and your guide will be there with you every step of the way.

Amminiel Nnko


“Ammy” has been working in the safari industry for nearly 17 years and over that time has acquired a vast wealth of knowledge. Naturally, Ammy feels right at home anywhere in the bush, as there are very few animals, places or things he has not experienced. Previously, he worked as a guide and manager for four years with Paul Oliver at Oliver’s camp, then seven years for Unique Safaris and two years for Sematango Tours.

Ammy is a guide with presence and is looked up to by all of the younger guides. He is married with two children and is a keen birdwatcher, but also loves observing animal behavior. When Ammy is not guiding he enjoys reading, sports, music and travel.
