Shaun O’Driscoll- Camp Manager

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Shaun has had the privilege to manage departments in large corporations and even ventured out on his own. He has travelled to various countries in Europe and Africa and experienced a vast amount of different cultures, but the call of the bush and wildlife is in his blood. A
n opportunity in 2004 sent him on a crusade to build, market and maintain a new camp in the South Luangwa. A two year stint that ended nine years later. Next stop the Caprivi strip in Namibia.
He has completed a Game Lodge Management course at a leading wildlife campus and now joins the management team at Lake Manze.

Milinda O’Driscoll – Camp Manager

Milinda was born in South Africa and grew up in the Metro city of Randburg. She gained her hospitality experience working in three and four star hotels in the vibrant city of Cape Town. Her first African adventure was in 1998 where she visited the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. In 2004 an opportunity arose to build market and maintain a camp in the South Luangwa which she grasped with both hands.
She has completed a Game Lodge Management course and has run a very successful camp in the Caprivi strip on the Okavango river in Namibia. Milinda is now joining the management team at Lake Manze.
