He has travelled widely in Europe, skied in Canada, and journeyed throughout Southern Africa in his early teens. Bitten by the African bug and keenly eco aware Laurence returned to South Africa to train and qualify as a Nature Guide, under the tutelage of the highly respected Johan Fourie. Laurence then went to Na’an Ku Se Lodge in Namibia, which specialises in animal conservation, to be involved hands-on in the rescue and rehabilitation of leopards, preparing them for their eventual release back into sustainable habitat.
He gained further experience at the 5* Sausage Tree Camp on the banks of the Lower Zambezi, followed by guiding and the provision of photographic tutoring in the St Lucia area of South Africa. Laurence is a talented photographer whose work has been shown in exhibition – The Bush & Beach Series. Attention to detail, extensive knowledge, experience in client care and a great sense of fun makes Laurence a much sought after safari and conservation buddy.
