A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I specialize in personalized birding, mammal, photographic and historical tours to all destinations in Southern Africa. I offer tours for one to eight people and I know my stuff. I do the awesome Namaqualand Flower Tour (in season - late August and early September). I am a very experienced, knowledgeable safari guide and I lead all my tours personally.
WHY CHOOSE ME
I am a passionate and committed conservationist. I assure you full value for your money. I know the best eateries, the best accommodation, the best vistas, the best historical destinations and of course I know where to find our birds and mammals. Flexibility on all tours and safaris in Southern Africa in my watch word
MY ETHICAL APPROACH TO NATURE
A wise man once said it is important to set the ground rules so that we understand each other
before entering a park. Do not ask me about hunting, I absolutely don't. When in the bush I leave only my foot prints and take only photographs. When on safari we are trespassing on the territory of both mammals and birds and their safety and comfort is as important as yours. At no time will we cause them discomfort or stress. If on tour and any animal or bird shows signs of distress or aggression we will back off to allow it to settle. If it does not settle we will move off. The secret to viewing and photographing wildlife is patience and not charging around. This is Africa after all. Being able to choose likely areas where exciting situations can develop is one of my strengths. I will put in long hours in the field during day light hours but will not use bright lights at night which disorientate animals, especially prey animals in Southern African game parks.
Please keep in mind that the survival of those wild animals and birds is more important than the taking of pictures. This will enable more tours and safari guests to enjoy the guided experience is South Africa's game parks.
