Anthony Dodds

A second generation Kenyan born in 1962, Anthony grew up a "bush kid" and reveled in all aspects of the African wild. After a brief and not entirely successful education he was back in the bush as a professional hunter. Not satisfied with the lack of ethics that commerce had insinuated into the sport, he turned to lodge management. He met his wife, Maria, at Rusinga Island lodge on Lake Victoria, and they ran several "boutique" lodges till 2002 when Maria took over the management of her family’s cattle ranch. They have a daughter and son growing up in their footsteps, adopting a love of the African landscape. When not on safari, Anthony raises rabbits and catfish and helps Maria develop her aloe nursery in support of the neighboring arid land communities.

Praise from Natural Habitat travelers:

J. Miller
"Anthony was an exceptional guide. His knowledge of the animals and his love for them and the environment were evident throughout the trip. Anthony's patience set the tone for watching the animals, which enhanced the total experience. Furthermore, he rotated between the vehicles so that each of us had equal access to his expertise. Anthony was always thinking of ways to maximzie our experience."

B. Nilsson
"I cannot say enough good things about Anthony Dodds and his role in this trip. Anthony is by far the best guide I have ever had. Aside from his sense of humor and patience, his knowledge of the animals is incredible. He not only can find the animals, he can tell you what you are seeing and their behavior. If there is an opportunity for Anthony to lead other and different trips, I strongly recommend him for the position."

C. Vavrina
"He was great! He understood the wildlife, their habits and had the patience to wait for a situation to develop as he knew it would. He made this trip as his knowledge of this part of Africa was his love as well. He needed no babble of communication in the background to take us where the action was-his knowledge did that."

G. Gagler
"Anthony was excellent and very concerned about the well-being of all the travellers. He would check up on us to be sure we were OK. Felt very safe with his guidance. I really appreciate the blanket he gave us on the 1st day. He said it was from Nat Hab and it was perfect. Thank you Nat Hab!!!!"

D. Robinson
"Anthony could not have been a better guide. His knowledge was amazing and his tracking skills at finding animals were extremely impressive. At our request, he also went out of his way to have very informative discussions with us about Kenya, its people, and its politics."
