Awards & Accolades

20.10.2015 / Wanderlust World Guide Awards

Orlando Haraseb, senior tour guide at Ultimate Safaris, has just won Silver at the Wanderlust Travel World Guide Awards in an event held at the Royal Geographic Society last week in London, UK. Out of thousands of nominees voted in by guests worldwide, these were short listed to just 8, and then whittled down to three finalists, Ultimate Safaris is very honored to announce that Orlando Haraseb is officially recognized as one of the best guides in the world. The judges included Bill Bryson (legendary travel writer), Mark Carwardine (author, photographer & TV wildlife expert), Peter Antoniou (Swarovski Optik, preferred supplier of quality binoculars to Ultimate Safaris guides), Paul Goodyer (Co-founder, Nomad Travel Stores), Derek Moore (legendary travel industry supremo) and Lyn Hughes (Editor-in-Chief, Wanderlust) and competition was very close and tight. We are tremendously proud (and not at all surprised) that this former captain of the national football team, avid birder, and all round nice guy has been recognized by industry professionals and guests as one of the best guides in the worlds. An worthy accolade to the caliber of Namibian guides, their passion, knowledge, professionalism and experience. The last few days Namibia has been abuzz with excitement and Orlando\'s been kept busy with interviews, press conferences and many phone calls. Orlando continues to be an inspirational mentor, role model and exceptional Namibian citizen.
