About me

I have spent many years traveling, living and working in Botswana and South Africa. After visiting Zimbabwe on Safari first in 1997 and again in 1999 I felt the call of Africa and successfully obtained my first Professional Pilots Licence in South Africa. Having heard of opportunities to indulge my passions, I travelled to Maun in Botswana to try and find employment as a Bush Pilot. Not having been there before I found that this was the perfect place to indulge my dreams of Safari and Aviation. I spent two years working for the largest Charter Company in Maun serving most of the camps in Botswana. I then used the knowledge I gained for the position of General Manager for Botswana of a 5 star Safari operation with two Lodges in the Linyanti region and one semi-permanent Lodge in the Khwai area of the Okavango Delta. The company also operated bespoke mobile and walking Safaris across the best Safari areas and National Parks in Botswana. I have travelled widely throughout Southern Africa not just as a Professional Pilot but also for my own enjoyment. I have visited many places within South Africa, including most of the major cities and many of the more remote areas including Augrabies Falls National Park, Upington, Karoo National Park, Beaufort West, Addo Elephant National Park and Whale watching in Algoa Bay, Port Elizabeth. I have also travelled widely in Zimbabwe and has also visited Namibia and Zambia. I hold Professional Pilots Licences in Botswana, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
