There are few young men you will meet with such an insatiable appetite for what he does and the place he calls home. Setting Tyrone apart is his ethical and honest approach not just to business, but life, and a work ethic that is second-to-none, earning him the respect of all who cross his path. Moreover, while his safari and wildlife knowledge is superb, it is perhaps his down-to-earth nature that makes him the total delight that he is.
Born and raised in the English countryside, childhood adventures to Africa took him time and again to Zambia’s vast Kafue National Park. Tyrone took his unprecedented childhood love for all things wild and ran with it, obtaining a degree in Conservation Ecology from the University of Kent. After graduating at the age of 21, he seized the bull by the horns and relocated to Africa.
Having spent several years managing and guiding at camps in Zambia, Tyrone and his close friend Phil Jeffery decided to establish an ethical safari operation, based in Zambia’s Kafue National Park. Their goals, to utilise local knowledge, provide employment to local people and adhere to strong ecological and conservationist values continue to be at the heart of their work.
In 2017, Tyrone and Phil founded Musekese Conservation with the aim to secure core areas of the Kafue National Park through capacity building of local law enforcement teams and conservation organisations.
Away from the bush, Tyrone is a keen sportsman, a fan of Arsenal FC, partial to the occasional Mosi (beer) and a wannabe singer! He is also a Land Cruiser geek, making for a healthy rivalry with Phil, who has similar Land Rover leanings.
