Gareth started in the tourism industry as a Professional Hunter in South Africa and had led safaris through many other African countries from Zambia, Tanzania, Cameroon, Central African Republic and Botswana with one of the leading hunting outfitters in Southern Africa, Cape Safaris. Following this period Gareth moved over to the photographic sector due to his love for wildlife and photography. Gareth guided full time for Singita Private Game Reserves over number of years, learning the art of luxury travel and how to really spoil your guests.
Gareth is a conservationist and believes in the value of protecting wild areas in Africa in order to ensure the future of border less wildlife through sustainable eco-tourism.
After living and working in the lowveld, Gareth decided to look for newer, wilder grounds and moved to Botswana, where he joined Kwando Safaris and managed Lebala Camp, Linyanti for 3 years. While there Gareth also took up filming, pursuing another passion in his life. In 2006 Gareth started a productions and photographic company, Go-Lingo Creations based in Maun, taking on wildlife filming and photographic safaris. During this period Gareth, now a qualified specialist guide had the opportunity to lead other safaris beyond Botswana’s borders in the Africa countries of CAR, Cameroon, Rwanda, Zambia, Madagascar, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Kenya.
Gareth currently manages and runs his company, Walk Botswana Safaris with his wife Robyn. Walk Botswana Safaris is a small family business that runs the more adventurously styled safaris such as horse-back safaris and walking safaris, as well as tailor made specialized photographic mobile safaris in Botswana.
Gareth loves to share his expansive knowledge and zest for the bush and you will be amazed at just how much you learn from him in just a few days. But its not all work with Walk Botswana Safaris, so be prepared to be entertained for hours, smiling and laughing your way through each day. These characteristics together with his warm personality and attention to detail, make him a fantastic guide and host, ensuring the experience of a lifetime that will leave you wanting to come back for more.
