I was incredibly fortunate to have been raised in a family that loved the bush, it meant wonderful family holidays to the various parks and reserves in South Africa, from the big game reserves like the Kruger National Park, to the smaller parks like the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve. It's this memorable childhood that sparked my interest in conservation and wildlife.
This interest continued to develop throughout my schooling career, leading me to join any course I could that had anything remotely to do with conservation. I was also lucky to have enjoyed many school holidays at wildlife camps being taught the very basics about conservation, as well as tracking.
I've also had a very keen interest in history, and have become extremely knowledgeable regarding the history of South Africa and in particular, the history of Durban. I've also become quite an expert in the British-Zulu battlefields of KwaZulu-Natal and regularly take visitors on tours to the area.
I plan all my tours with the comfort and safety of visitors in mind. I realise that many visitors have travelled many miles to get to Durban, whether by ship or plane, and they deserve the best service and the best experience I can offer.
A Recent Review of this guide
Outstanding day out, even considering the torrential rain/hail storm as we were heading out. The site is excellent and Shelldon displayed excellent knowledge at all times and made the story come alive. There were a few other tours around us and their guide said nothing in comparison. Lunch was basic at Rorke's Drift but very tasty and just enough. It was a long drive there and back and must have been tiring for Shelldon but he remained engaged and entertaining the whole time. one of the best trips
