My wife and I are blessed with four children, three boys and a girl. I would love to take my great grandchildren camping in the bush to show them the wonderful wildlife I have been privileged to work alongside: elephant, lion, impala, wild dog…
Working for Wilderness Safaris has given me the opportunity to share my talents in guiding, meet wonderful people from all over the world and continue to learn each and every day.
This is my fifth season at Ruckomechi and I love the diversity of wildlife found here. I think the wildlife has become accustomed to our presence and the comings and goings of staff – running the camp for the dry season, closing for six months and returning again the following year to start a new season! Wildlife sightings are never guaranteed – the photos we share of amazing sightings require hard work, and it’s always incredibly rewarding when you find an animal such as a leopard or lion, or a large herd of buffalo.
I am a guide at work, but a father at home and need to make up for the months spent away from my family. I enjoy being at home, and always make the most of being with my wife, children and hometown friends.
If you don’t already know, photography is addictive. Once you have a good camera, you are down, hook, line and sinker. Olympus is one such machine which may look daunting, but yet is so simple to use. Using Olympus has been a whole new experience for me and has offered a new appreciation for photography and capturing the moments we are privileged to witness at Ruckomechi. I am addicted!
