About

the solomons

We – Derek & Sarah Solomon – are long-time tour and safari operators; and the Kuyimba Trading name evolved from our time living on the edge of South Luangwa National Park, Zambia. We now live in Raptor’s View, a small wildlife estate on the edge of Hoedspruit, a little town in the heart of South Africa’s bushveld, only a short distance from Kruger National Park.

We have been leading special interest safaris in Southern Africa for over 30 years. Originally based in Harare, Zimbabwe we worked as a team taking safaris into remote destinations around Zimbabwe , Botswana, Mozambique, Zambia, Namibia and South Africa. 

In 2003 we moved up to Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park and were based there for 5 years so Luangwa, and Zambia as a whole, has a special place in our hearts.

In addition to planning safaris we spend much time sound recording – it’s a passion! See more at DerekSolomon.com
