Previously a guide at the world-famous Londolozi Game Reserve, Lex is now a popular freelance nature guide who imparts his wealth of knowledge of Africa’s ecosystems in an easygoing and friendly manner.
He is an author and nature photographer with five books to his credit – the highly acclaimed Leopards of Londolozi; a children’s book called Bushschool; Attracting Birds to Your Garden in Southern Africa; The Complete Book of Southern African Mammals; and Wild South Africa, about the biomes of his native country.
In addition to time spent in the Mpumalanga Lowveld and guiding visitors around South Africa, Lex has been involved with biological work on the sub-Antarctic islands of Amsterdam and Marion.
Lex leads tours all over Africa, presently spending most of his time in Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, Madagascar and South Africa. He has also led trips to the Central African Republic, Gabon, Kenya and Mali.
When he is not away travelling, Lex is very busy co-managing EcoTraining, Africa’s top nature guide training company, which has the goal of raising and maintaining the standard of nature guiding in Africa.
He lives in Nelspruit, not far from the Kruger National Park together with his wife Lynn.
