Causemore, or Cosmos as he is known to us, was introduced into the guiding industry by his German Science Teacher in 1996, as she used to take his class camping on weekends. His first job was at Tsoro River Safaris, where he started training as a guide in April 1997 and passed his Learner Professional Guide Licence in 1999. His training covered tracking, birding, first aid, fire arms, habits and habitants, law, tourism act, guest acquaints, principals of guiding, camp management principals, survival and rescue and basic astronomy.
Cosmos passed his Canoe Theory in 2000, and got his shooting licence in 2005, becoming a full-time guide in 2006. He particularly enjoys mentoring younger guides and imparting his skills to the broader Ibo Island Lodge team.
