Sean Zeederberg

Blog Editor

As a young boy growing up on an agricultural farm in Zimbabwe, Sean spent every opportunity entertaining himself outdoors, camping in the local nature reserve and learning about all facets of the natural world.

After completing a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science in Cape Town, Sean was free to follow his nature ambitions and return to his bush-loving childhood dreams, which led him to Londolozi.

Going into semi-retirement on the guiding front in 2020 saw Sean settle into a far more permanent role in the LCH, focusing his efforts on producing media content for the Londolozi online space.
