Gareth was born and raised in Zimbabwe and, from a young age, has always enjoyed the outdoors – from keeping numerous species of snakes as a youngster, to going to South Africa to complete his FGASA level 1 and to getting his Zimbabwe Learner Guides licence. Gareth took a 7 year break from guiding to go overseas and do a trade through City & Guilds, which landed him working in the high end construction industry in London. But his heart has always been here in Zimbabwe and its wild places. Gareth moved back during the height of the pandemic in 2020 and has been in the bush ever since. Gareth has worked in Hwange National Park and Matusadona National Park and has now joined us here at Kavinga. Gareth’s interests lie in everything from geology to astronomy and has a keen interest in botany and the medicinal uses of plants.
