We felt like Raymond was part of the family. Eagle-eyes while spotting game; quiet; knowledgeable about habits, foods, dung, areas where animals hang out. Professional about keeping his great friend and colleague, Alex’s death from us so as not to impact our trip! (Not necessary but so thoughtful!)
Raymond knew about plant/animal interactions too – like ants and giraffes and whistling acacia trees. He found TWO not one leopard tortoise for us! He was willing to hang out for almost an hour waiting for a black rhino to get closer. We were also one of the last trucks up out of the Ngorongoro Crater:). His driving skills were amazing. He is a safe driver. He stopped for a charging part for us which was above-and-beyond.
