Kyle was born and raised in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe. His childhood was spent scurrying barefooted along the banks of various rivers and dams, fishing rod ever-in-hand, enjoying the beauty and freedom of outdoors.
Kyle obtained a degree in construction from UCT before stumbling into the world of conservation after he volunteered to participate in a re-forestation effort in the Seychelles. He has never looked back. Several years and several projects later, whilst managing an expedition in Angola he met former Londolozi guide, James Kydd, who inspired and encouraged Kyle to try his hand at guiding. He took the plunge and has never been happier.
