Grant Truthe - Managing Director

Grant has been in the business since he was a little boy, growing up in the bush with his legendary family, the Wilmots. After graduating as an aircraft mechanic, Grant went on to pursue his dream of sharing his love of the bush with his guests which he has done successfully for the past 25 years. After running his own mobile safari company, Grant joined his wife, Kate, in the setting up of another successful lodge in the Delta before he and some friends decided to open up their own camp in the Delta which is where Setari Camp was born. He now runs Setari Camp full time and is based between camp and our head office in Maun.
