African born and bred, Rob began his love affair of ‘all things wild’ as a young boy - a childhood, much of which was spent in the African wilderness, climbing trees, watching birds and jumping off waterfalls. As a young adult, Rob obtained two very different degrees at university, one in the Arts and one in Biokinetics. Consequently, his studies covered a wide range of subjects from Philosophy, English Literature and History of Art to Human Physiology and Anatomy!
Rob found his true passion on the Mala Mala Private Game Reserve in South Africa, signing up as a guide after a memorable experience guiding the Cambridge Blue Boat crew on a safari during their nineties tour of South Africa. Over 20 years on, Rob is still at his happiest beating about the bush, introducing guests to the wild wonders of Africa, and developing a deep understanding of the genius of the natural world.
Rob’s fascination with the natural world has led him to be inspired by the emerging science of Biomimicry, a subject around which he has become an African field specialist and on which he consults and presents to large organisations and institutions across the region. Rob also hosts and facilitates specialist Genius of Nature expeditions in living laboratories around Africa.
