Tim Carr

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.

Ian grew up in the mountainous farming district of Eglin where his passion for the outdoors was given free reign. He did his schooling in Cape Town and later graduated from Stellenbosch University before going on to discover his true calling as a Wilderness Guide.
