Mabu Buru Tours is owned and operated by Johani Mamid, a traditional Yawuru man whose country is located in and around Broome in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.
Created in 2019, Johani began conducting on-country cultural experiences. His vision is to help "build a bridge" between different cultures, to increase awareness about Aboriginal people and to encourage visitors to experience country through the eyes of traditional custodians.
Prior to this, Johani was a Yawuru Country Manager Coordinator with Nyamba Buru Yawuru Limited, a not for profit company looking after country on behalf of the Yawuru Nation. On country work included flora and fauna surveying, monitoring and research in both land and sea.
Johani is proud to share his knowledge of his country with visitors, show you the local wildlife and tell stories of the ancient, continuing connection that his people share with this land.
You may spot Johani in Broome as he is also a crocodile wrangler and tour guide at the Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park where he gets up close and personal with some pretty impressive crocodiles.
