About Adrian

Guiding History

I got my foot in the guiding door at Tshukudu Lodge in the Pilanesberg and guided in the North West from 2006 to 2007. From Pilanesberg National Park, I took a guiding position and & later a lodge management position in the Manyeleti Game Reserve - Greater Kruger Biosphere - at Tintswalo Safari Lodge from 2007 to 2009. The opportunity to guide, as well as later conduct research and write up 2 academic papers on Kalahari lions at Tswalu Kalahari Reserve came about in mid 2009...I've been out here ever since.

Guiding Qualification

FGASA Level 3 Trails Guide Diploma in Professional Field Guiding & Lodge Management- The Bush Academy: International Hotel School

Special Fields Of Interest

Animal adaptation has always been my guiding base. Species symbiosis and extreme physiological adaptations still blow my mind, and in turn these intricacies amaze guests time and time again.
