Expedition Leader – Naturalist – Guide

Wildlife Adventure Travel, Safaris and Wilderness trails across Africa

Hi, thanks for having a look at my web page. I am an outgoing, nature loving, people person. I also love dogs, a lot. I live in South Africa with Sandra and Sengi – whom I am stoked to have as my family.


I travel all over Africa guiding a diverse range of safaris, wilderness walking trails, wildlife expeditions and remote area explorations every year. I really love the diversity of my guiding – never a dull day!

My approach to guiding involves getting my guests excited about the wonder of nature, the incredible biodiversity all around us and the amazing way that time in the wild is so very good for us. I put a lot of effort into showing you and telling you all about the creatures you wanted to see. I work even harder to show you all the things you didn't know you wanted to see, and to tell the mind-blowing stories of the interrelatedness of nature. We laugh a lot, cry a little and are often filled with wonder.

As a guide I have worked in many roles - game drives, walking safaris, birding, botany, tracker, river guide, expedition leader and many more. This experience has taken me across my incredible home continent, Africa, and beyond into the middle east, Asia and the Americas.

I am proud to create safaris and expeditions that have a real and meaningful positive impact on the ecosystems that host us. Many of the trips I lead can be described as conservation travel – where the fees we pay are channelled directly into conservation of that region.
