Chad Wratten – Owner
Wild Cherry Adventures is owned and run by Chad Wratten. Chad got into tourism in his early twenties and almost immediately fell in love with the way of life. The Kruger national park was his office and life was good. Over the next 10 years, he worked all over Southern and East Africa. However, he particularly enjoyed his safaris in Namibia. He earned his National Tourism Guide Qualification with SATOUR and FEGASA.
Then in 2004, he opened his own business in Windhoek, Namibia. The desert was calling and in 2007, he opened Wild Cherry Adventures specializing in safaris to Sossusvlei. Over the following few years the Namib Desert was his home. He also took on four walks across the Namib Desert covering over 2500km. The last one was for charity (Giraffe Conservation Foundation) where he walked 300km through the Kaokoveld up to the Kunene River on Namibia’s border with Angola.
Chad believes a great safari is made up of a few elements: well-spoken knowledgeable guides, good food, comfortable sleep but most importantly, it must be fun.
