Growing up on Game Reserve in the Waterberg Roan was privileged enough to be exposed to the magic of the bush from an early age. After completing his guiding qualification in 2007 he never looked back and soon discovered his passion for nature photography and challenged himself to capture the ‘unique magic of the Africa’, after a few years of working in the greater Kruger area he decided to move to Zimanga to share his knowledge of wildlife and wildlife photography.

From a young age Calvin has had a passion for wildlife and nature. Although growing up in Johannesburg meant there were not many large mammals, Calvin grew up playing in rivers and climbing mountains almost daily. His interest in photography started a few years before he started his guiding career where he had the privilege to read all about the technical side of photography at work and then go home and practice what he had read that day.

He has been guiding in the Sabi Sands since 2010. His love for photography has grown along with his understanding and interpretation of animal behaviour. His passion is sharing his knowledge about wildlife and photography with others.

Passionate about the preservation of Africa’s wildlife, Margueriet exchanged a successful career as a chef to become a guide.

By 2009 she had obtained her guiding qualification, worked at some of the top lodges in the greater SABI area and furthered her knowledge about the bush and the conservation thereof through her studies of Environmental management.
Her exceptional interest in photography also motivated her to study film and after a brief period working in the filming industry she returned to the bush where she is at her most happy, sharing the passions of her guests as together they roam the plains of the reserve in search of spectacular moments to capture on camera.
