With over 30 years of guiding experience, it is no wonder that David is one of the best in the business. A very passionate, empathetic and hands-on individual, David’s style is to turn a “nice experience” into an incredible journey. He is a master in teaching everyone from novice to seasoned traveller about wildlife and takes huge satisfaction in educating his younger visitors.
An passionate advocator of wild places and an enthusiastic contributor to conservation efforts, David is known for changing people’s views and perceptions on matters of our planet. Given his sphere of operation during his three decades of guiding – including Botswana, Madagascar, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, Zimbabwe and the Arctic – David’s expertise goes way beyond our African borders. His birding life-list for Africa stands at well over 700 species, and over 250 species offshore.
In the field, his special interests are in photography, ornithology, mammals, walking and canoe trails, while off the field – when he finds the time – his attentions turn to the likes of painting, drawing, music, scuba diving and snorkelling, hiking and fitness.
