Right from his very first bush trip at the age of four, Pete was always enthralled by this environment. Having grown up in the Middle East, Pete’s home-away-from-home has always been a bungalow in the Greater Kruger National Park, where his family had a house – a place that to this day lies close to his heart.
This exposure from a young age instilled a curiosity within him that drove him to study a masters in conservation ecology, a journey which saw him monitoring wild dogs in Kwa-Zulu Natal and managing student researchers in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. Pete decided to give the desk-based job a try in 2016, whereby he designed climate change adaptation projects for international funders. However, he could no longer ignore his desire to be back in the bush and joined the Londolozi family in 2017. With surfing being his other passion in life, Pete’s only gripe about his life at Londolozi is that he is forced to miss out when the waves are good down on the coast!
