Meet in Person
Ex-SADF and SAPS with knowledge and experience in nature related subjects (warfare, tourism and training), Investigations (detective), Intelligence (covert and overt) and training/education in safety, security, and nature.
I am an outdoors person with a passion for life and passionate about nature and wildlife.
My objective is to be the best at whatever I do and keep learning and gather as much knowledge to enhance my own skills AND share my passion for nature and life with others, by educating, training and showing the small things in nature that we usually overlook or look at but not see.
I am a nature fanatic. Anything in nature is my passion, hiking, tracking, conservation, and my hobbies and the training I provide shows my passion;
- Tracking (animals and man)
- Nature conservation
- Safety & security in nature
- Abseiling, and rope & rescue
- Hunting (not for trophies but for meat)
- Survival and bush-craft
I believe that if you show respect to some-one, that include animals, birds, snakes, insects, will show you the same respect.
It is our duty and privilege to protect that, which sustain us, family, ourselves and nature because it is our heritage because the smallest part of our biodiversity is an integral part our wellbeing.
“Only when the last tree has died,
and the last river has been poisoned,
and the last fish been caught,
will we realise that we cannot eat money”
