Fraser Gear, Safari Fundi
Selous, Southern Tanzania
Fraser has been a passionate guide and naturalist since the early 1990’s. Starting his career in Southern Africa in special places such as Phinda Game Reserve, Pafuri, and the Okavango Delta, he developed a love for all things wild and wonderful.
Walking, birding, and botany became a focus that led to him guiding all over the African continent, Madagascar, Asia, and South America. Fraser has opened camps and operations in numerous remote locations including the Congo, trained guides at all levels, worked as a private and specialised naturalist guide, led expeditions and adventures into the planet’s unexplored corners, and generally had a lot of fun sharing his love for the natural world.
Fraser is based in the Selous with his wife, Sandra, and the pair work with our teams on the ground to ensure the smooth running of our camps in the Selous and Ruaha, training guides and operating adventurous activities such as fly camps, boating, and walking.
Fraser is passionate about sharing knowledge and understanding of the natural world and is a dedicated “citizen scientist” contributing to open source studies and helping to make knowledge about biodiversity more accessible to all.
