Gift Chandiona


Gift has been a valued member of our operational team since our 2014/15 season. He is a true African. Born, raised, and educated in Malawi, but now living and working in South Africa. He heads the ground staff team at Soaring Safaris and is responsible for the airfield maintenance, glider cleanliness and airfield vehicles.

Gift is quietly spoken but works very hard. Both he and his brother, Owen, follow football closely and welcome the opportunity to debate the various merits of both local and international teams with visiting pilots. Gift has also inherited a talent for forecasting the weather so his wisdom in these matters is often sought.
