PERSONAL BIOGRAPHY Who is Pako Lesejane? Lesejane is a landscape photographer, traveler, exhibitor and an adventure lover. With a distinctive love for wildlife, he takes time to study animal behavior and nature. His love for elephants has extended to an actual tag; “the gentle giants”. Apart from elephants he is passionate about Big Cats and Rhinos of which he is still on a fundraising mission to do an expedition that will educate communities living in the wilderness about the importance of conserving and learning to live with the wildlife around them. Pako oozes with happiness when he is on the road, with his charming smile he is a connector and survival skills adviser (you would bet he is from the army). His love for wildlife is exciting and infectious. "Many people mistaken me for a guide." Lesejane participated in a one oåf kind local expedition themed 'Cross Okavango Delta Expedition' using a mokoro. He also completed a self- drive safari though Central Kgalagadi Game Reserve, Chobe National Park, Nxai Pan and Moremi. Lesejane has travelled extensively where he folloåwed the Livingstone trail from Kolobeng in Botswana to Zanzibar in Tanzania. He was later sponsored by Namibia Tourism to explore Namibia and photograph landscapes over 15 days. He has climbed Kilimanjaro to Uhuru 5895m Peak. More of his missions include hiking at the Drakensburg and Maluti mountains in South Africa and Lesotho, traversing through the Kalahari Desert and Makgadikgadi Pans by foot for charity. Lesejane has always had a special place in his heart for nature, wildlife and considers himself a conservationist. Lesejane's addiction to travel has influenced many people to travel earning himself the name “Journey Man”. If he is no taking pictures somewhere in the wild, he is probably cooking up a storm or fiddling with his gadgets.
