Occupation:

Operations Director – Isibindi Africa Trails / Walking Trails Guide in Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park

About Me:

Nunu Jobe one of 13 children grew up in the rural area of KwaJobe in northern Zululand an area renowned for excessive poaching. After matriculating at Mbazwane he worked in security at Phinda Game Reserve. Desperate to follow his calling to become a ranger he left Phinda to do his ranger training with KZN Ezemvelo Wildlife at Mkuze Game Reserve. Nunu held various positions within KZN Ezemvelo from vehicle based guiding and tracking to walking guide until he fulfilled his goal of becoming a full time trails ranger in the wilderness section of iMfolozi Game Reserve. Nunu has led countless trails in this pristine area having a profound impact on many of those people who have been privileged to walk with him. In Dec 2015 he resigned from the Park to realize his long term ambition of opening his own business; Isibindi Africa Trails which is based at Isibindi’s Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge in the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park. From humble beginnings Nunu is now Operations Director of his company and employs 6 highly qualified trails rangers. Nunu is fondly known as “The Rhino Whisperer” as he is able to get guests within a few metres of these animals on foot, he has built up an uncanny report with these animals.

Personal / Sporting Achievements :

- Won KZN challenge for Road Safety at school
- Wild Star Winner KZN 2012 1st round
- Opened his own business in 2015
- Birth of 1st child in June 2017
- Taking 250 local children into Hluhluwe iMfolozi in June 2018 to educate them on importance of Rhino Conservation creating “The Human Fence”

Reason for taking Challenge:

Nunu walks almost daily with white Rhinos in the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park and his driving passion is to educate the youth of communities living adjacent to the park as to how critical it is to protect these creatures. Nunu sees the Rhino Peak Challenge as an opportunity for him to do something to assist the preservation of the Rhinos and give back to them as in his own words they feed his soul.
