Home-Coming For Dardley Tafuruka and Catherine Norton

The Bumi team is delighted to welcome Dardley and Catherine back to the fold.  Zimbabwe-born and grown, the early years of both their careers included working at Bumi and in the Kariba area, and have both been out of the country for many years enhancing their skills.

Dardley Tafuruka, a Professional guide, has been in the industry for 20 years, states “leadership, teamwork, training and communications” as vital to him and is a larger-than-life effervescent personality who creates an immediate impact when he walks into the room.  He is well-spoken, and his passion and knowledge of wildlife, and ability to relate to people from all over the world have been enhanced in the countries where he has worked for the past few years (including Tanzania, Botswana and Zambia).

Catherine Norton had a stint early on in her career working at Bumi, and having been out of the country for several years, and worked in the hospitality industry, has returned! A food and beverage specialist, Catherine is witty and creative. This comes through in the choice of menus and displays that come forth from the kitchen. Despite being a real lady, Catherine knows how to get stuck in and ensure that despite operating out of a kitchen miles from anywhere, in the heart of the bush, delicious meals are produced and clients constantly marvel at what is presented to them.

Both Dardley and Catherine are delighted to be home, and we are delighted to have them and the new ideas and skills they bring!
