Once finished with high school and attempting to pursue his passion as a professional cricketer, he decided to do a diploma in game ranging and lodge management. It was here that his passion for the bush really took off and after completing his course, helped a friend out on a game reserve and has not left the industry since!
His career started as a guide in the Eastern Cape of South Africa back in 2005 and he has since managed, trained, mentored and guided at some of the top lodges in Africa. Creating memories with guests in nature was what he was destined to do, a natural at connecting with people and nature alike.
After a few years in the Eastern Cape he moved up to Madikwe Game Reserve were he met his wife, Drienie and together, they managed properties in South Africa and Mozambique, as we as some time spent in the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania, managing, guiding and training the staff.
When they were expecting their first child, Andrew and his wife decided to move back to South Africa and pursue a more home-based career and for the past 5 years Andrew has been specialising in planning safaris throughout East and Southern Africa. Having guided clients for over 10 years and with his all-round knowledge and experience, it was only natural that he continued sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm for mother Africa with guests.
His adventures continue from where they started, in the Eastern Cape, where he resides with his expanding little family, expecting their second child early 2020.
