Andrew, or more affectionately known as ‘Moli’ is one of East Africa’s most experienced guides, particularly from a walking safari perspective – with years of experience in both the Selous National Park and Ruaha in Southern Tanzania. Moli will present and interpret the natural world that will turn days in the bush into an altogether higher plane of consciousness.
JOHN REEVES MOLLER:
This is a man who cuts a dash as he strides out on walking safaris, able to notice the smallest detail that in turn begins the narration of the day’s events.
“On a walk close to the Ewaso Nyiro river in Kenya, John pointed out a hoof mark in the dust. Easy question I think – “Oryx”. “Yes, but what else?”. John points out the width of the splayed hoof, indicating that the animal was carrying extra weight and therefore pregnant. So, we now know she’s female and given the month and how close to the rains breaking – the birth should be imminent. “She must be heading to the river to drink and then rest up in the shade of that grove of acacia”.
Sure enough we find her browsing quietly in the acacia around an hour later. It’s this understanding that reveals so much more of what is happening rather than just ticking animals off a list.
Alex Walker’s Serian camps are renowned in safari circles as those which offer some of the finest guiding possible. At the helm of this ship is the eponymous Alex himself who has twice been rated Best Safari Guide in Africa. Based for most of the year in camp, Alex relishes the remote with the notion that walking takes you further off the beaten track, preferably off any track entirely.

While safaris are meant to be educational and revealing, they are also meant to be fun and getting the balance right can be tricky, Marius delivers all this in spades.
