Rob and Charlotte welcome you to Golden Africa

Rob Barber:

Rob was born in the southern highlands of Tanzania and was introduced to the bush at a young age. His first stomping grounds were in Ruaha National Park, Tanzania, where the family would regularly go camping. After finishing school, Rob went on to work in Ruaha guiding for a season at a lodge with family friends. This is where he knew that a life of guiding and working in the bush was unquestionably the one for him. Rob left Ruaha to study in Bristol, UK and graduated with a BA (Hons) but the bush was always calling. Before leaving the UK for good and returning to his roots, Rob was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (FRGS). He came to Botswana and was immediately taken by the incredible wilderness and diversity of the country and soon realised that this was to be his new home.

He went on to start up Golden Africa, and today, as Director of the company and a fully licensed professional guide of Botswana, he continues to work throughout the country, in the Okavango, Chobe and Kalahari, designing, planning and leading safaris for many clients who keep coming back for more.

Charlotte Bennett-Diver:

Charlotte was born in England and grew up in Surrey where her interest and passion for wildlife and nature began at a very early age. During her early years, Charlotte took as many opportunities as possible to gain experience working with animals, including at several farms in Kent and at the RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

Although initially wanting to pursue a career working with wildlife, Charlotte decided to follow in her parents’ footsteps by joining the British Civil Service. After a successful eight year career working for various different Government departments, she took a six month career break to fulfil her dream of exploring Africa and of being closer to her passion, wildlife. During those six months Charlotte gained first-hand experience of the safari industry and of Botswana, and loved every minute of it. Although very different to an office-based job and to life in England, when the opportunity arose to join Rob as a director of Golden Africa, Charlotte did not hesitate in accepting it. Charlotte moved permanently to Botswana in 2013 and has not looked backed since. Charlotte’s background in the Civil Service has provided her with the project management and delivery skills to lead on the operations for Golden Africa as well as planning guests’ perfect journeys with Golden Africa.

Charlotte is also a keen photographer and has taken many of the photos used for Golden Africa’s marketing and social media forums. Charlotte’s passion for wildlife has also recently led her to helping out at the local animal welfare society in Maun, Botswana, which helps take care of animals in need.
