Elephant’s Eye, Hwange New Lodge Manager Identifies Most Strongly with an African Eagle

Most of us have learned in life that good things don’t last forever, but when something comes to an end a new chapter begins. This month, we are bidding farewell to Blessed Chalibamba, who has not only been managing our eco-lodge Elephant’s Eye, Hwange for the past 4 years but has literally built it to what it is today. (He was on site when every single screw was put into the decking and the big Gum poles sunk into the ground).

Today, Blessed proudly announced that he is passing on the baton and legacy of managing this unique lodge and the Elephant’s Eye, Hwange family to Milton Mpuche who uses the following three words to describe himself: “Integrity, Passion & Leadership”. Milton has gained his vast experience at places such as &Beyond Matetsi, Stanley & Livingstone, and Shamwari among others and describes his way of creating exclusive guest experiences with: “It’s really all about how I make guests feel”.

Hideaways co-owner and CEO Katja Quasdorf welcomed Milton personally on his first day at the new job and sat down with him to ask him some questions about what he’s learned through the years and how it influences his management style, to read the interview please click here.

Welcome to the team Milton!
