is from northern Botswana. Born in a village called Mabele
in Chobe, he lived a nomadic life with his family from the time he was 3 years old, traveling west along the Linyanti River towards Lake Liambezi in search of rich cattle-grazing land and fertile soil to grow their crops. He counts himself fortunate to have lived on this landscape as a young boy, experiencing Botswana’s wild places while his father taught him about tracking animals, medicinal uses for local trees and survival in the bush. During his rural childhood, Alex rarely spent time indoors, preferring to remain outside in the fields and exploring the bush with his father and brothers. The experiences fostered his lifelong passion for wildlife and conservation.
Alex has been guiding safaris in Botswana almost continuously since he graduated from high school in 1993. He earned his professional guiding license and spent four years as an official guide in Chobe National Park before working his way up from safari guide to camp manager in the Linyanti and Okavango Delta. Guiding remains his passion, and he is well-versed in sharing his extensive knowledge of the bush and its wild residents, whether from vehicle, boat, mokoro or on foot.
Alex is an avid photographer who enjoys sharing his technical and artistic expertise with his guests. He is adamant that his expertise in guiding and photography play an active role in helping to conserve Africa’s wild places. His work took first prize in a global photography competition, and he has presented his images to an international audience in South Africa. Alex has also traveled to Kenya, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Though he has yet to travel outside of the African continent, he hopes to do so one day.
