Meet Our Team
From: Western Cape
I started at cheetah ridge on the 1st of October 2021 and what I can say is what an amazing team to be a part of such a family orientated group of people.
My guiding career started about 10 years ago after leaving school. One of my biggest influences in my love for nature and the bush would have been my grandfather, he Is a geologist and was always in the most remote and wildest places. I had the opportunity to spend lots of time in reserves with him, learning about all sorts of things. He had a passion for all sorts, small too big and loved to learn all about animal behaviour with him. As a young boy I absorbed all of it, finished school and headed straight to the bush to become a guide and a conservationist at heart.
Some of my greatest passions in the bush are sitting around watching birds or finding new bugs of all sorts. I love looking at tracks as they at times can tell quite a story another passion inherited from my granddad.
I love sharing my passion of the bush with guests whether it be teaching them about something new or just sharing amazing stories about what I’ve experienced in my 10 years as a student and a guide, although I still feel like a student because you can never stop learning.
