John grew up on the slopes on Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and even as a young boy, he was passionate about wildlife and captivated by the different species of primates, birds and antelope in the area. Studying their behaviour was the next obvious step for him and after completing his schooling, he enrolled at the College of African Wildlife Management in Mweka, graduating in 1994. As a research assistant, John gained great experience, including exposure to important bird breeding regions; and honing his guiding skills in various conservation areas in Tanzania cemented his love for working in nature. He believes that the environment provides the perfect backdrop to appreciate all forms of life, and that witnessing animals thriving in their natural habitat connects us to what is most important.
