was brought up in Cape Town, and has had strong ties to exploring the environment from a very early age. Both his parents actively sought to travel and explore southern Africa with kids in tow and thus growing up, as Charlie puts it, “was
like paging through a copy of National Geographic”. Soon after school, Charlie did a game ranger apprenticeship at one of the bush lodges in Mpumalanga province adjacent to Kruger National Park.Having obtained a diploma in Nature Conservation, he then returned to the area to take guided tours
and trails.
Charlie furthered his studies through obtaining a Masters degree at the University of Cape Town – his thesis involving the conservation of a key farmland bird species.Subsequently, Charlie returned to his guiding
roots, and currently lives in Cape Town where he has been guiding as a Cape Town tour guide for the past 10 years. He is passionate about birds, flyfishing, and photography.
