RICHARD DE GOUVEIA – A Professional Guide

“I started out my career as an environmental consultant, conducting environmental impact assessments for various companies. I had always been drawn to the bush and eventually, in 2009, decided to change direction and pursue a career in guiding. ​I completed a 6-month live-in safari course with Bushwise and went to work at a lodge in the Kruger National Park for a year before moving on to Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve for the next 5 years. ​My passion for the bush extends way past just viewing the animals and is cemented in exploring the connection between the living and non-living elements of the bush. My favourite bushveld creature is without doubt the leopard, followed closely by the termite – which can only be understood after listening to my in-depth explanation of both species. ​My love of the bush is matched by my interest in photography and as a former Nikon Ambassador and now I am proudly a Sony Alpha Ambassador, I really want my guests to enjoy taking photos and help them make the most of their camera equipment. It is my goal to have guests leave with a deeper appreciation of all aspects of the bushveld, as well as with memorable photos of their time on safari.”

“I have spent the last 7 years guiding privately around Africa, seeing some of the most incredible places and experiencing some of the best wildlife activities on the continent. From the gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda to the lemurs of Madagascar, each place brings with it its own majesty. It is my privilege to be able to show people around the most amazing natural areas around the world and help people reconnect with our earth which we have lost touch with.”@richard.degouveia
