The Karoo Ridge Conservancy team is led by Pete and Helen Wenham who have over 25 years of experience between them in biodiversity research, resource and reserve management, game capture, animal husbandry, veld and animal monitoring, lecturing, guiding and lodge management.
We employ a team of local staff whose contribution and deep commitment to the development of the conservancy is invaluable. Their knowledge of Karoo farming practices, stockmanship, craftsmanship and tracking skills are a true asset. Most of the staff live on the conservancy with their families who help us manage the lodge and guest experience and make items to sell in our small gift shop.
Working alongside our dedicated team of local staff, we employ final year Nature Conservation students and interns to assist with our work. You can see some of their achievements here.
Pete and Helen’s partners in Karoo Ridge Conservancy are Chris and Liz Floyd, and Tim and Georgina Wiltshire.
