Staying in Polokwane Limpopo Prov. South-Africa !
Married to an angel and blessed with 3 kids !
Enjoying wildlife, safari's, 4x4's and photography !

After marriage I stopped working fulltime as a safari-guide ,now doing safari's and bookings only parttime.... for the pure love of people and nature. Focus on those tourists who don't want to do the "big group" thing , but rather explore nature and places in small personalised groups.

Being a wildlife/nature photographer myself, I do know the needs in terms of filming wildlife and nature in this photo- heaven in which I'm blessed to live.

    "Chris has an eye for the beauty of his country and its nature which his photography brings to the rest of the world through some of the most stunning photography I have seen. I love he has continued to grow as a photographer, unafraid to experiment and explore, but most of all that he shares it with us. I have no doubt he will continue to astound us with his work, and that we will continue to see why he loves Africa so much."

    "Chris is the best African wildlife photographer I've see on flickr. What is so great about his work is that the intrepetations are so unique in a field where almost every idea has already been shot. He has an amazingly creative eye and I always love seeing his latest shots."
