Jonathan Wright, Managing Director
Jonathan was born in Uganda and educated in Kenya, UK, and Canada. Despite this global schooling, Johnny would happily have skipped it all to return to his favourite spot on the Nile, fishing for Nile Perch. His passion for Uganda, its wilderness and its natural beauty is limitless – he is happiest in the bush in his ripped shorts, binoculars in hand, squinting at the horizon.
Pamela Kertland Wright, Founding Director
Pamela has lived in Uganda for 20 years (dragged here by Johnny, who promised she’d love it). A native of Montreal, she studied Anthropology at University and worked for a number of years in television and advertising development before a total career overhaul …she looks after the softer side of the safari and lodge business and also works as the Honorary Consul for Canada in Kampala.
Safaris | Purchasing | Finance | Other Operations
Our main office is situated in Bugolobi, Kampala, a leafy suburb a little away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of town. This is our hub, where all reservations, marketing, vehicle maintenance, accounting, purchasing and other logistics for the group take place. The passion and dedication of the team is palpable when visiting our office; and many a day and night is spent strategizing and planning together, with the sole focus of promoting tourism to the country we love. Then we have the lodge-based management and staff… all highly trained, motivated and passionate: their 24/7 commitment is what keeps Wildplaces Africa a leading Lodge operator in Uganda!
