Dr Helena Fitchat

As a passionate nature lover, Helena has spent over 30 years working in the environmental and wildlife field. With a PhD in Biology and a specialist in animal behaviour, Helena faithfully served as Operational Director of CROW from 1998 to 2009.

An expert tracker with an adventurous spirit and an undying passion for the African wilderness and its wildlife, Helena has crossed the Kalahari Desert on her own, lived with Bushmen for over a year and has single-handedly navigated her way through the vast Okavango Delta in a leaky boat.

Together with her business partner, Judi Gounaris, Helena now owns and runs Wild at Tuli Safaris, an independent, highly-specialised safari enterprise located in Botswana’s famed Tuli Block. Helena has served on CROW’s Board of Trustees since 2001.
