I was born and raised in Zululand South Africa, and was very fortunate in my early years to spend time on a game reserve where a herd of elephants had been relocated to – this was undoubtedly were where my passion for the bush (and elephants!) was seeded. I completed my schooling in England, and studied wildlife management, before returning home to South Africa to start my career in guiding.
I did my training and gained subsequent experience at Phinda Private Game Reserve, which remain the most memorable times of my life. The experience gave me the grounding to work at some of the finest lodges in South Africa, including Kwandwe, AndBeyond, Singita and Mala Mala. Come join me on foot in Africa and allow your spirit to come alive!
