Armand Bachaspatimayum

President of Recherché Journeys

An avid photographer and wildlife enthusiast, Armand recounts the thrill he felt in the middle of his first night at Okavango Delta, while the lions roared right outside his canvas tent! There was no looking back! He has over 20 years of experience and knowledge in the eco-travel industry, but more importantly, he has developed relationships with the local communities that we give back to, when you travel! And when he is not doing that, he is cooking spicy chicken and fish for his boys!
