"The gladdest moment in human life, me thinks, is a departure into unknown lands. The blood flows with the fast circulation of childhood!"
Sir Richard Francis Burton - explorer
PHOTOGRAPHER AND SAFARI GUIDE
Ian Johnson is a Professional Safari Guide, Eco-tourism Consultant, and Professional Photographer. As a photographer Ian has received several Southern African and International Awards for his wildlife and natural history photography. Ian's experience has made him a specialist in animal behaviour giving him an uncanny, intuitive ability to predict and anticipate animals and situations!
As a freelance cameraman for the BBC Natural History Unit, Ian has worked on a number of documentaries in the Maasai Mara and is a specialist consultant on Leopards for BBC.
Ian believes in adventure & thrills! And this is what he has been doing for the last 20 years by constantly striving to spread the magic of the natural world through his guest's veins while on safari.
Through his Eco-consulting business he has taught and worked with guides, trackers and wardens from the forests and gorillas of Uganda, to the vast Serengeti/Mara, along the entire East African coast, to the Okavango Delta and Linyati ecosystems, to the Sabi Sands and Northern Maputuland biosphere reserves. Ian's motivation for training is in that he fully believes the guides of Africa are one of the most important keys to its survival.
For the last 10 years Ian has expanded into many exciting new territories. His current footprint covers Africa, South America, Canada, India and the Arctic.
