Nik is the chief guide and has been conducting tours to Kruger Park and other top safari destinations since 1976. His natural good looks, charm and cheerful manner make him a favorite with the tourists. He is a specialist guide and has studied the habits of the wild animals in great detail so that he can make his tours exciting. Nik is a very keen cyclist and passionate about health and fitness.
Anthony Hawell (Hoppy) has been described as a real gentleman who takes great care of his passengers. He is an ex-fireman and fortunately, a very useful mechanic. He has had many years experience as a field guide and obviously enjoys imparting his knowledge of the animals and environment to overseas tourists. One of his hobbies is photography, so he can give you some good tips on wildlife shots to take home.
Clive Alborough is a qualified chartered accountant who decided to stop the city life for the freedom of the country and Kruger Park. He certainly strives to find the biggest five sightings for his guests and has a very friendly relationship with many other tour guides so that he hears about all the latest "kills" and any leopards in trees. He enjoys the interaction with overseas visitors and will delight in recounting the highlights of the day's game drives over dinner at night.

Within our brief 3 days, Henry had us all over the park, finding all but the Rhino from the Big 5. We were astounded at the level of information and intense interest in making our trip amazing that Henry had for our group. The arrangements were flawless, everything was done beyond expectation, and we are already looking forward to booking again with this group when we return, hopefully next time for the camping too! Take care, Henry, and thank you for all the support and easy directions from the administration. You guys did GREAT!!
