Some of Tim’s earliest and most lasting impressions of nature happened while growing up on one of Namibia’s diamond mines along the fringes of the Namib desert. After dinner he remembers getting into the old family Peugeot and driving though the town, looking for Oryx and Jackal that were attracted into town by the irrigated lawns. These early “Game Drives” determined his career without conscious thought, he was always going to work in wild spaces, and always as a Guide. Driven by both a love of interacting with people and nature, Tim is highly sought after as a guide for Alumni groups as well as for private Safaris. He lives on South Africa’s Garden Route where he, his wife, and two children have been converting old Pine plantations into a thriving eco-reserve.
