Alex was born in Kenya in the mid 1960’s into a family who have been involved with Africa’s wildlife and people since the turn of the last century. Growing up in Kenya and Tanzania, Alex has been guiding professionally for more than 30 years across East and Southern Africa, seeking out the most interesting wilderness areas.
His experience includes managing Sand Rivers lodge in Tanzania’s Selous Game Reserve, offering mobile walking safaris in the Masai Mara and Tsavo, and leading numerous climbs up Mount Kenya. Walking and exploring areas on foot has always been his passion and he was one of the first guides to operate safaris in the Sera Conservancy; his fly camping wilderness safaris into this region are hard to beat for those seeking a true adventure.
Alex’s Ol Pejeta Bush Camp on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy is one of the very few owner-managed bush camps in Laikipia and is the culmination of a lifelong dream for Alex. He believes there is no better way to connect with the real Africa than getting out there and walking to feel a part of the landscape, find and observe magnificent game in this most exciting way and view at close hand the detail of this extraordinary environment.
He has a relaxed and humorous approach and a comprehensive experience of the bush, combined with a deep understanding of, and close rapport with, the local people.
