Joe grew up in northern South Africa and since a very young age showed a great passion for the natural environment around him. He has been leading bird and wildlife tours in Africa for more than 20 years now and first guided for Limosa in 2007, when he successfully introduced us to owls and rhinos around his hometown in Limpopo Province.
An exceptional birder and a consummate wildlife tour guide, Joe has been involved in a vast array of wildlife related activities ranging from field research in the Kruger National Park, through game capture and translocation to field guide training.
He is a veteran of more than a dozen trips to Namibia and led our July 2016 and 2017 tours there. Joe also guides our tours to South Africa (Kruger & Drakensberg) and to Botswana & Zambia.
