About Callum


Callum has been in love with all things wild from a very young age. After embarking on a degree in commerce he soon realized that his passion for the African bush could not be extinguished. During his 2 year diploma in Game Ranging and Lodge Management he worked as an overland safari guide, which took him to some incredible places throughout Southern Africa. Upon completion of the diploma he started guiding in the northern most part of Kruger National Park, a little paradise known as Pafuri. During his 6 year stay at the camp working for Wilderness Safaris, he helped to set up the Pafuri walking trails and developed a true love for walking in the bush.

Having achieved the highest guiding qualification in South Africa in 2011, Callum moved to Botswana to embark on a childhood dream, to guide in the Okavango delta. After a short stint of managing camps he obtained his Botswana guides license and for the next 3 years he guided guests through the wilderness of Botswana, working in some of the most remote areas on this planet. His base for most of this time was the famous Mombo Camp in the heart of the Okavango delta, where he has witnessed some of natures most amazing events unfolding in front of his eyes on a daily basis. With a keen sense of adventure, Callum will spend the majority of his off time exploring the continent he loves most… Africa. Wildlife photography, birding, tracking and walking in the bush are his ever-growing passions and he loves nothing more than sharing this and his knowledge with others. Now, based in Hoedspruit, he manages to balance family life (with his new baby girl – Scout) with the bush by still being able to privately guide guests throughout the continent.
