Being surrounded by wilderness from a young age, you experience it in all of its essence. I was privileged enough to grow up in the Lowveld and its surroundings, sparking a great love for nature and all it has to offer, be it the sunsets, vast landscapes or amazing wildlife. As a young boy, my favourite trips were always going to the bush with family, spending time with only the best that Africa has to offer.

In 2016, I discovered a passion that went hand-in-hand with my love for wildlife, Photography, and this is how I found my path leading to Londolozi.
