Craig believes that the true beauty of Africa lies in immersing yourself in its wilderness in a way that your world view will be changed forever
- Love of nature
Craig’s love of nature was forged as a child
Born in South Africa, he spent his childhood in the wilds of Alaska where his passion for nature and wildlife was born. At the age of 10 he went on his first Kruger Park safari…and as they say, the rest is history. He returned to South Africa as a young teenager where his lifetime of adventuring (mainly on foot) in the bushveld began.
He freelances for Kruger on night and walking safaris and was deeply involved in their anti-rhino poaching for many years.
- passionate and inspiring
Connecting with Africa
His first love is the African bush and his natural charm, high energy, easy going nature and passion for Africa comes through in all that he says and does.
There is no way of feeling more connected with Africa than heading into the bush with someone whose life has been dedicated to exploring the backroads and unlocking the best of the continent.
- unparalleled knowledge
Craig shows you it all; shares it all
Craig not only has an all-encompassing knowledge of the area, wildlife, birds, geology, trees, and grasses that only comes from experiencing the African bush on foot, but he also has a way of giving you new insights on nature, wildlife, and our own place within it.
Your experience is very personal, as he learns exactly what you’re interested in seeing and you’ll find a great continuity in your safari as you are able to reference wildlife you spoke about days before and put everything you see into context.
- respect for nature
He respects the personal space of the animals in the bush
If a guide invades an animal’s space and causes it to alter its natural behaviour, it defeats the goal of wildlife watching – which is to observe the animals as they behave naturally and not how they respond to your presence.
By knowing exactly how close he can go to animals, Craig gives you both a fabulous sighting and the opportunity to watch the animal behaving naturally. It’s a fascinating and magical safari experience and gives you tremendous photo opportunities.
