a veteran safari guide with a deep-rooted passion for Africa’s wildlife & wilderness
Garth’s family have been in Africa since 1688, spending eight generations as wine farmers in the Western Cape before moving from South Africa to present day Zimbabwe by wagon. It is here that the last five generations have thrived as hunters, riders, farmers, ranchers and now, Garth as a wildlife guide. It is without doubt his family’s long resident history that instilled a deep passion for Africa and its wildlife, and is what made him realise at a young age that he wanted to work with wild animals and share these interactions with my fellow man. While enjoying all things wild and scenic Garth’s specialities are safaris concentrating on photography, elephants, walking, canoeing and riding horses among wildlife, while blending appropriate occasions to be serious, quiet, in awe and appreciative as well as time to celebrate incredible sights and experiences with laughter and comradrie around the warmth of the campfire, forging incredible friendships. Garth has guided across the length and breadth of Africa, however his greatest love is canoeing the Lower Zambezi River along the shores of Mana Pools and Zambezi National Parks.
