Wilderness Safaris Announces New Chief Sales Officer

Wilderness Safaris is delighted to announce the appointment of Simon Stobbs as its new Chief Sales Officer, to ensure that the company is able to continue to give its valued trade partners and friends the service and strategic support required, to not only endure the current challenges that we’re facing, but to emerge stronger together.

In addition to his extensive knowledge of sales and marketing, Simon’s many years of lodge-based and private guiding developed a profound understanding of many African countries, including Botswana, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. He also worked closely with Wilderness for many years while running his own tour operating business. His ten years at Wilderness Safaris have seen him develop extensive sales experience, as well as a sincere appreciation for the company’s commitment to conservation and community empowerment.

“I am really excited about building relationships with our trade partners and working closely together to ensure that we come out of this crisis stronger, with a bright future ahead. The one thing that gives me a bigger kick than any other is watching a guest have an incredible safari experience. I think this probably stems from my guiding days, where seeing the delight on peoples’ faces as they were exposed to the wonders of Africa was something I thrived on”.
