Adam Bannister is passionate about the African bushveld. Having worked as a Londolozi guide for just under three years, Ad is even more enthusiastic about the bush than when he first arrived. An in depth understanding of lion dynamics at Londolozi, stunning photography and of course his naturalist abilities, make Adam a valued member of both the ranging and blog team at Londolozi.
Adam’s love affair with Londolozi began at the ago of 5 when he played a lead role in the hit Disney children’s series “Bush School” with John Varty. Child stardom, however, was not for him as Ad focused on his naturalist passions and the outdoors. After working and traveling extensively throughout North and South America as well as volunteering in the Amazon Jungle in Ecuador, Adam completed his Conservation Ecology (Hons) at the University of Stellenbosch.
Starting at Londolozi in 2009, Adam quickly put into practice his knowledge and experience. Thriving in the bushveld both in the vehicle, on foot and behind the lens, Ad’s guiding ability is not limited to just the naturalist side of things. As one of the rangers on the African STAR Retreat, he brings an esoteric and thought provoking element to his game drive experiences. Working closely with his tracker, Solly Mhlongo, the pair have developed a unique safari experience for guests at Londolozi.
