Richard was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa and has spent the majority of his life living in and out of the bush. He feels perfectly at home in the African wilderness and when he is travelling on personal safaris he has been known to go walkabout in the bush. Sometimes he gets so involved in what there is to see and experience that he forgets what day it is and arrives back home weeks after he is expected!!
Richard studied politics and international relations, and later specialised in travel and tourism management. He has travelled extensively in Europe, and also spent time in the Far East teaching English.
Along with his love and enthusiasm for Africa’s people, wildlife and landscapes, Richard has first-hand, in-depth knowledge of Southern Africa and therefore understands the logistics involved in creating seamless, extraordinary journeys through Africa.

Growing up, Sarah’s family headed off on camping and other expeditions into the bush whenever they could, touring South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe extensively. Sarah’s passion for wildlife and wild areas started young and is still going strong. When Sarah left university after studying Zoology and Botany for a while, she was bitten by the scuba diving bug and became a diving instructor, working all over the remote parts of Mozambique for a few years. After a time spent living in the hard wood forests of Northern Zambia, Sarah is now based in Johannesburg with her own family. She is keen to instil in her young children the same love of the African Wild and the African Coastal Envionments that she has developed, so Sarah and her husband take their children off on camping and other expeditions into the bush and to remote coastal areas whenever they can.


Bruce has travelled extensively for years in Europe, North, East and Southern Africa and parts of South America, New Zealand, Canada, the USA, Malaysia, India and Borneo. Bruce is also a keen mountain biker and competes in several multi-day stage races each year including a successful completion of the 8 day 950km Cape Epic in 2006.
Following a BCom degree from the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, completed in 1993 Bruce worked in an office for a year, but threw that in for the safari life! He has a keen interest in photography and enjoys those special "off the beaten track" places.

Shaun’s family are from the coastal city of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Shaun’s interest in the wild areas of Africa has lead to many years of 4WD excursions into the bush of Southern Africa including the remote Kaokaveld on the Namibia/Angola border and many national parks. He obtained a BCom degree from the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg where he also practiced his love of rowing. Shaun then started leading tours throughout East and Southern Africa from 1994.
Shaun married Megan in 2000 and they have spent time travelling in Australia, climbing mountains in Nepal and skiing in Canada. They are proud to announce the birth of Laird Curtis on the 17 May 2006, hence mountain climbing will be put on hold for the moment.
