Private tour guide Shelldon

Shelldon W.

Durban, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

Hi everyone. My name is Shelldon, and I am a qualified guide based in the city of Durban, on the east coast of South Africa.

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

This is the second tour we have done with Shelldon. This guide has an infinite amount of knowledge and passion about his subject. The drive up from Durban is filled with local history and topological content. Always willing to stop his own commentary to give answers to any questions that you may have, either about the subject or something that you may have seen en route. In hindsight we should maybe have done an overnight stay at the game reserve or battlefield tour to move onto the next tour. Enjoy ��
