I am Omar. Omar Jabang
Also well known as Omi. So I named my tour and safari company Omi Tours.
My career as tour guide started when I graduated from high school. I joined Makasutu cultural forest local community tour guides unit. Where I was trained as a tour guide on nature and wildlife and tour guiding principles.
