Joe and Lisa panel

Joe Grosel

  •     Joe was born and grew up in the northern parts of South Africa and since a very young age showed a great passion for the natural environment around him. His extraordinary sense of observation and bush skills were identified early, and at the age of thirteen Joe was requested to lead his fist Big-5 walking safari. His post graduate qualifications lie in the field of ecology and wildlife management, ornithology and zoology.

    As a result of his diverse natural historical knowledge, Joe has been involved in a vast array of wildlife related activities ranging from research in the Kruger National Park, game capture and translocation, ranger & guide training, management of large private game reserves and ecological management for local government in the Limpopo province. He has designed and conducted safaris across southern Africa for over twenty years and still enjoys every excursion as much as his clients do.

    Lisa Grosel   
  • Lisa initially began her career in the veterinary corps of the South African Medical Services where she was involved with veterinary and wildlife management projects. On completion of her tertiary education in natural sciences and conservation she went on to work as an operations manager on a horseback safari operation in the Okavango Delta and then as a field guide in the Kruger National Park. In 2001 Lisa started her own operation in the eco-tourism field, specializing in photographic and horseback safaris in the Limpopo Province of South Africa.  She is a registered guide with both THETA and FGASA.

    Over the last fifteen years her business profile has developed into providing services in the game farm management field such as sourcing and re-establishing wildlife while her eco-tourism interests have flourished and expanded to offering horseback safaris, corporate niche-market tours, team building and adventure safaris.  Lisa is an integral part in both the logistical and operational management of The Tembele Collection.
