Intrepid Expeditions | About David Carson

David Carson

Born in Zimbabwe, David continues to live in one of the most beautiful countries in Africa, and has maintained a reputation for over 20 years as one of the best guides anyone lucky enough to have on a Safari. Zimbabwe has the most rigorous wilderness guide training on the continent, and the few that successfully complete the four years and obtain their Professional Guides License, are well- versed in botany, zoology, ornithology, entomology, current world affairs, tracking, and the ability to come up with a plan for almost any problem encountered in the bush.

David now spends almost all of his time guiding safaris into remote areas that he considers his back yard: Hwange National Park, and Mana Pools in Zimbabwe, and Moremi, Savuti, and Chobe in Botswana.

Dave's great love of his country is infectious and his wonderful sense of humor for even the most harrowing experiences will have you hanging on every word.

“The trip was absolutely amazing! From first contact, to trip preparation, transfers, guides, accommodations; the attention to detail was evident throughout our trip. I recommend anyone looking for an adventure in the grand tradition, and a life altering experience to immediately call Simon, book a trip, pack a camera and a small duffle, and go have the trip of a lifetime!”
