About Shenton Safaris

Matthew Armstrong-Ford, originally from the UK, has always had a passion for the bush from a young age. He gained his FGASA guiding qualification in South Africa after leaving school. He then went onto lead groups for self-drive trips all around Southern Africa. After spending a short time working in Tanzania he then settled in Zambia bringing with him his fiancé Charlie; she is also from the UK. Matt has strong Zambian connections; this is ultimately where he wanted to be based so when an opportunity came up to work for the Shenton’s at Mwamba Bush Camp and Kaingo the couple jumped at the chance. After working the 2014 season with the Shenton’s, Matt achieved his Grade 2 South Luangwa Guides License so is now eligible to join the Shenton Safaris guiding team for the 2015 season.
