With the spectacular success of Chiawa Safaris, Grant and Lynsey’s sky-high net worths are only natural. According to Gossip Next Door, the Cumings each have an estimated net worth of upwards of $1 million, making their reported combined net worth of at least $2 million, though the couple hasn't publicly confirmed that.

Grant and Lynsey Cumings’s HGTV series ‘Renovation Wild’ was a quick success.

After overseeing Chiawa Safaris for decades, Grant and Lynsey’s efforts are finally being shared with a broader audience.

In May 2023, their series Renovation Wild debuted on HGTV, and it outlines the couple’s journey to renovating two of their remote Zambian resorts, Chiawa Camp and Old Mondoro.

The eight-episode show features Grant and Lynsey — and their children — updating their exotic properties while facing a slew of unprecedented obstacles.

Grant and Lynsey Cumings’s backgrounds and expertise position them as experts in their field.

Described by the Sunday Telegraph as a “bush [dynasty] whose passion for their environment has extended far beyond their own livelihoods into conservation and community outreach,” Grant and Lynsey have undoubtedly made a name for themselves in Lower Zambezi National Park and South Luangwa National Park.

According to the Chiawa Safaris website, both partners bring unique experiences to the table, which has informed their decades of hard work.

Lynsey’s degree in Hospitality Management, previous employment by Marriott Hotels and British Airways, and Grant’s degree in Business and years of experience with conservation and guiding position the couple as safari industry experts and have contributed to the unprecedented success of their safari resorts.

Not only that, but the Zambian landscape is all Grant has ever known. "I was born here in Zambia, our safari lodges are here and we're raising our family here, so everything is on the line,” Grant explained. “And it's survival of the fittest out there."
