After receiving his Field Guides of Southern Africa qualification, he moved to Namibia, where he assisted in the reintroduction of African wild dog on Erindi Game Reserve and participated in the Global Leopard Project. Tim has a passion for wildlife photography and loves sharing his knowledge of birds, reptiles, and African wild dogs.

Client Testimonials


Tim is a top notch guide. His knowledge of animals and their behavior, flora, and the environment, the history and culture of Namibia, and the backcountry’s often-not-marked road system was comprehensive. He made efforts to cater to everyone’s interests while also working hard behind the scenes to make the trip seamless. And his engagement with the group and always friendly and positive demeanor helped make the trip an unforgettable experience.
