Daniel’s love for wildlife and nature began at an early age cultivated from the many family holidays to the bush as a young boy.
After completing his tertiary education in South Africa, Danial sought to expand his horizons travelling to Vietnam for a year to teach English. It was there, however, that Daniel was reminded just how important conservation was and how he needed to do his part, no matter how big or small, back home in the country he grew up in and deeply loved.
Having previously heard of &Beyond’s Inkwazi Ranger Training School at &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve, Daniel enrolled in the programme and hasn’t looked back since knowing from the very first day that this was where he was meant to be.
Over the last three and a half years, Daniel’s continuous love for guiding as helped him grow from strength to strength seeing him move into a more management role in the guiding team. Equally passionate about sustainability, Daniel aspires to continue his career with &Beyond with this as a driving force.
Other key areas of Daniel’s life include birding and photography.
