Nick is a Professional Guide from Zimbabwe. He attended high school in Zimbabwe and university in South Africa where he graduated with a Bsc. in Zoology. He has guided throughout Zimbabwe and has toured in Mozambique, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Tanzania.

His wildlife career began as a learner guide from 1988-1990 at Fothergill island, conducting game viewing from vehicles during his vacations from university. In 1990 he earned his learner guides license. From 1991-1994 he was a game ranch manager. He was involved in the development of an ostrich farm and got his license for game capture, earning his full license in 1991.

From 1995-1998 he was a freelance guide in various lodges and camps in the Kariba, Hwange, and Mana Pools areas. He also served as an examiner/observer on the board for the Professional Guides proficiency test.

Nick, along with his wife Desiree (also a professional guide) have their own photographic safari company in the Zambezi Valley where they will personally guide you on a journey down the Zambezi River in the Mana Pools National Park. Walking and canoeing amongst the elephants is an experience not to be forgotten.
