Anthony Dodds


A second-generation Kenyan, Anthony grew up a 'bush kid' who reveled in all aspects of the wild. After a brief and not entirely successful education, he turned to lodge management after becoming disillusioned with the lack of ethics that pervaded the professional hunting industry in Africa. He met Maria, his wife-to-be, at Rusinga Island on Lake Victoria, and they continued to run high-end 'boutique' lodges, including Ol Pejeta Ranch House, Colcheccio and Mutamaiyu until 2002, when Maria took over the management of her family cattle ranch. Anthony continues to guide, after developing substantial expertise over the years through lodge-based work. Their daughter, Chala, and son, George, attend the same boarding school and look to be growing up in their parents' footsteps, thankfully displaying more aptitude in class than their father did. When not on safari, Anthony raises rabbits, tilapia and catfish and provides training for neighboring farmers, as well as helping Maria develop her aloe nursery in support of the neighboring aridland communities.
