About Umdingi Safaris
Clint Robertson is a born and bred Zimbabwean and the owner of Umdingi Safaris. Having spent his childhood exploring and camping in the wilderness with his canine companion, he now gets to live his dream of sharing Zimbabwe’s astounding beauty with the world.
After spending much of his working career in the safari industry, Clint had always thought about branching out on his own. He enjoyed the team atmosphere and the amazing mentors that supported him throughout his career; but wanted to be his own boss, whilst focusing on wildlife conservation and giving back to the local communities in Zimbabwe. In the midst of this he met a lovely young woman who was doing wildlife rehabilitation work. She is now his teammate and wife, Kelly. These two with the help of their team have now created a business that they love … and the rest is history!
There’s nothing more exhilarating than experiencing Africa for the first time. And we thrive off of bringing that life-changing moment to our clients.
For us, the joy of Umdingi comes from seeing our customers inspired and humbled by one of the most beautiful places on planet Earth.
Promotion of Zimbabwe’s Diverse Natural Wonders as well as the People of Zimbabwe
The Tourism Industry in Southern Africa is booming. People from all walks of life dream of one day visiting the region, whether as a first timer or a veteran. And they all want to experience the grandeur that Africa has to offer. However, we need to focus now more than ever on promoting ethical tourism. Africa is beautiful and it must be preserved – from the majestic wildlife to the local communities. So, we want to help our customers experience both in sustainable ways.
Ecotourism with Umdingi
Sustainable and ethical conservation is the most important consideration right now in the safari world, and visitors and destinations need to work together to make it a reality. The conflict between wildlife and rural communities on the African continent is an ongoing struggle, and there is a huge push from the majority of the safari operators to work with these communities, so that tourism benefits both parties, and continues to be sustainable.
