Ricus Delport & Pietro Bosman

General Manager and Operations Manager

Ricus and Pietro are Afrikaners who grew up on farms bordering the famous Addo Elephant National Park on the Eastern Cape Coast of South Africa. They have been migrating across Africa for the last 15 years and have not only loved every minute of it but gained valuable experience in managing both bush & beach camps. Their careers have taken them from the cold desert shores of the Namibian Skeleton Coast to the hot tropical waters of Gabon and the islands of Sao Tome and Principe in West Central Africa. From there they pushed eastwards towards the northern frontiers of Kenya and then south into the Serengeti to hook up with the real migration. In 2012 they joined Selous Safari Company and managed our flagship camp of Siwandu for two years - their wealth of experience was a continual font of knowledge and fascinating tales for both the staff and guests alike - “The thing that made this stay so very special was the incredible attention to every possible detail by Ricus and Pietro - they seemed to have the ability to provide something before you even realised you wanted it” – PamWJ, Reading, UK (TripAdvisor, June 2013). In 2014 they embarked on a new adventure of opening a new safari camp in the Parc National du Delta du Saloum in Senegal and then down to the Congo, Brazzaville to do a turn-around and expansion project of the amazing Odzala Discovery Camps in the heart of the Congo Basin. In 2017 they decided to return to East Africa and to Selous Safari Company to take on the roles of General Manager for Ricus and Systems Analyst & Quality Assurance Manager for Pietro, based in the Head Office in Dar es Salaam.
