The Team:

Patience Banda

‘I was born and raised in Livingstone surrounded by people in the tourism industry. However I had absolutely no interest in tourism. My mind was set on studying clinical medicine.
As fate would have it, after school, I missed my entrance exams into the health Institute. This meant I had to wait a whole year for another shot at this. My mum suggested I atleast get into school to pass the time. I decided I would just do a short course in International Tourism. This gave me a better understanding of the industry and I was hooked.

I joined Wilderness Safaris in 2008 and had a chance to spend time in the camps…I fell in love with nature and I have never looked back.

Creating holiday packages for clients and sharing in their joy makes it even more worthwhile!’

Having been raised in small town within a wildlife area in Kariba, I had my first interactions with wildlife at a very young age. Sightings of elephant, buffalo, and hippo characterised our 5km walk to school. Weekends were spent between outings to the bush to collect tamarinds, baobab and other seasonal fruits. During my school years I joined a Boy Scout movement where we were given opportunities to go camping, wildlife tracking and viewing in the national parks and safari areas. The seed for my love of animals and conservation of wildlife was sown here.

My hospitality career began with completing Zimbabwe guides Licences. I joined Wilderness Safaris Zimbabwe in 2000 at Ruckomechi Camp and moved to Zambia in 2005 where I found myself managing top camps for Wilderness safaris in Kafue, South Luangwa, Victoria Falls, Mana pools and Lower Zambezi National Parks. Moving around these camps was an incredible learning curve and this helped my management skills and learning the dynamics of these areas. MJ offered me an opportunity to put all I learnt into practice and we’re now turning our clients dreams into wonderful Memories..

After graduating from Law school, I took part in the  “ZedniZee Initiative” a program designed by Memorable Journeys to create awareness to Zambians about all that Zambia has to offer by making us experience it first-hand. Having been around Zambia and know every nook and cranny from which the most memorable journeys can be extracted and experienced and so when Memorable Journeys had an opening for a travel consultant, I gladly got on board so that I could share my experiences with others.
