one of the great African naturalists of all time
After being raised in Australia Howard moved to Kenya to fulfill his passion to work with wildlife. Since his first safari in 1980 Howard has travelled the length and breadth of Africa, guiding professionally in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda. A firm believer that to conserve the wildlife you must first know something of it, Howard helped set up an Outdoor Education Program for African children of various ages, exposing them to not only the animals but to the particular environment each species lived in. He has also conducted safari 'field trips' for undergraduate student groups from American universities as part of their zoology degree curriculum. Howard began working with Ker & Downey Safaris (Kenya) in the late 1990's and has never looked back. Recognising his knowledge and leadership abilities, the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association (KPSGA) asked him to join their Board of Directors several years ago. More recently he has also worked as a director of Campfire Conservation Ltd, a conservation management company working to ensure the healthy future of the wildlife and communities of Kenya, especially in the well-known Masai Mara National Reserve.
