About me

on safari in Kruger

Early in 2007 I gave up the corporate, rat race treadmill of Johannesburg, South Africa and turned my part time passions into a full time lifestyle.

Yes, yes..... a typical "mid-life" crisis move. But I haven't spent a single moment regretting that decision.

During my first year PRR (post rat race) I brushed up and formalised the skills I needed to make my passions for the bush and underwater world economically viable.

Since then I have spent most of my working days guiding in Kruger National Park, one of the most beautiful and diverse conservation areas in Africa.

In 2015 I expanded my horizons to also work as a Tour Leader (and guide) on a route that includes the beautiful Garden Route and Cape Town.

I don't work permanently for any one company, as guiding freelance gives me more time to scuba dive, explore other parts of the world and share my experiences with a wider audience via this blog.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your "journeys" with me.
