George Tolchard & Emma Wilson

Camp Managers

George and Emma met while working together for a renowned safari company in Arusha, Tanzania. George at the time was managing the company’s mobile camp operation in the Serengeti while Emma arrived from her homeland to work within their Head Office. George hails from the small town of Market Harborough, UK but his true passion is Africa and the wonders of the natural world. George has a Diploma in Zoology and is a registered FGASA (Field Guides Association of South Africa) Walking Trails Guide with a Level 2 qualification. Since 2009 George has been living and working in Tanzania and has been involved in many aspects of conservation during his time in the safari industry. He began his career in South Africa where he worked extensively throughout the region in both guiding and management. George is well travelled throughout the continent of Africa but Tanzania remains his true home. Australian born Emma shares George’s love for the outdoors, wildlife and has a great passion for photography of which nature, wildlife and landscapes are her main focus of attention. With a degree in Business and Tourism, Emma began her career hosting guests from all around the world at one of Australia’s most intriguing destinations, Ayers Rock and from there she dived into the African safari industry working in sales, marketing and reservations in both Australia and Tanzania. Together George and Emma managed the private concession of Selinda Reserve, Northern Okavango Delta, Botswana but were desperate to return to Tanzania so soon joined Selous Safari Company in 2016 to manage Siwandu.
