About Me

Alan has been involved in the field guiding industry since 1996. For the last 9 years he has been with the world-acclaimed safari brand, Singita, where he headed up the group’s Field Guide and Tracker Training and Development Programme for all of Singita’s properties. He is one of seven people to have attained the coveted Field Guides’ Association of Southern Africa (“FGASA”) Scout qualification (Specialised Knowledge and Skills dealing with Dangerous Game & Senior Tracker) and is one of the most highly regarded trainers of field guides and trackers at present.

Alan is also an accomplished wildlife photographer, and has travelled extensively in Africa. His family owns a property in the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, and his many holidays there engendered a love and respect for the bush. Alan is now in a position to share his extensive skills and knowledge with other private landowners and their staff in an innovative package of services designed to significantly enhance an understanding of your Bushveld environment, improve your knowledge of wildlife, birds, wild flowers and trees, and navigate your surroundings in a respectful, meaningful and safe manner.
