Sharwimbo’s Gift: From Dishwasher to Camp Guardian – A Story of growth and perseverance
Meet Gift, a dedicated general worker at Sharwimbo Camp. His name truly reflects the invaluable contribution he has made to this tranquil haven nestled between Kongola and Susiwe, just a few kilometres from the pristine beauty of the Kwando River that divides Namibia and Botswana. Gift's journey at Sharwimbo began as a dishwasher, but over the past decade, he has evolved into much more than that.
When we arrived at Sharwimbo, Gift was there to greet us with a warm smile. He not only assisted us with our booking but also showed us to our comfortable accommodation. And it didn't stop there. During our stay, Gift's talents became evident as we savored a delicious plate of food he had prepared. As we dined, we couldn't help but notice the beautifully crafted floor beneath us – a testament to Gift's craftsmanship.
Gift's dedication to Sharwimbo is not just a story of personal growth but also one of conservation. By being part of the team that provides exceptional hospitality to visitors, he contributes to the sustainability of this beautiful camp because Sharwimbo supports responsible travel with a low carbon footprint.
While at Sharwimbo Camp, you can immerse yourself in the tranquility of the wilderness and experience warm hospitality that Gift exemplifies. Start your day at Lizauli Traditional Village within walking distance from the camp is a must do during your stay. Proceed on a game drive as Sharwimbo lies on the elephant migrating routes between Botswana and Angola. Go birdwatching to see over 350 bird species recorded in the area. Finally, end your day with an experience on the Zambezi Kwando river on boat cruise.
And after a day of adventure, relax in one of the steel, pole, or canvas chalets, permanent tents or bring your own camping equipment for a wholesome experience and surround yourself with the sights and sounds of nature.
