Wilderness & Safari Guide • Founding Director at Gamfuse
Jo is an active qualified licensed field and full lead trails guide whose focus is on walking safaris. His focus area is predominantly within the Greater Kruger National Park, the arid Northern Cape and the Kalahari Duneveld with a particular interest in exploring remoter wilderness areas on foot.
His keen understanding of the sciences, coupled with a curious mind and a philosophy of continuous learning, allows him to see the bush with different eyes, and interpret the environment differently to the often-regurgitated explanations. He has been exposed to a number of outstanding trails mentors.
Besides nature guiding, his experience extends to guiding over landing and shore-based angling trips. He has guided groups into Mozambique, Namibia, Northern Kwazulu Natal [KZN], Southern KZN and Transkei. He provincially represented Gauteng for Shore Based Angling.
Jo actively contributes to conservation through his work as an Honorary Ranger. Not only does he get his hands dirty, but he spends a lot of time thinking about how existing conservation models can work better.
When not on safari, Jo is focused on making a difference in the lives of people. With a life long interest in the medical profession, he is the founding member of Gamfuse (Pty) Ltd who have brought the KORU Home Infusion System to immune deficient patients in the Southern Africa region.
Jo is world wise, compassionate yet direct, well read, witty and has decades of varied bush experience. This combination makes him a great guy to get out into the bush with.
