Branice is a quick learning and confident individual who completed her Certificate in Tour Guiding & Travel Operations with distinction in the Maasai Education Centre in 2017. Also a KPSGA Bronze qualified guide, Branice joined our team at Mara Explorers full time in January 2018 where she is now working as a guide and waitress. Already in possession of a Kenyan driving license her long term aim is to become one of Kenya's best female driver guides in a male dominated industry.
Peter joined our team as a sous chef in June 2017 and stepped up to the head chef role in October 2018 when the position became available. Since joining us he has completed a baking course at Lakuku, Nairobi's leading private cooking school and he regularly goes out with our mobile kitchen to the Mara Triangle bush camp safaris. Aside from getting consistently good feedback for his cooking he is also a great entertainer!
Born and bred in the Ole Keene village of Maasai Mara, Stanley first joined our team full time as a kitchen steward after finishing high school in 2017. After showing a great deal of interest in food preparation and baking he was promoted to the role of Commis Chef in October 2018 when an opportunity became available. A very popular member of our in house team he has since completed a basic cooking course at Lakuku, Nairobi's leading private cooking school and we hope he can be a role model to other young Masai.
Peter is our all round driver guide from Nairobi with a diploma in Tour Guiding and Administration from Nairobi Aviation College. He joined our team in May 2017 and has since gained his KPSGA Bronze qualification and been trained in First Aid by St John Ambulance. A lovely member of our team, he is always very popular with our clients and everyone at camp.
