ASSOCIATE PARTNERS > WARREN PEARSON
It was his grandfather's passion for the African bush that first drew Warren to apply to become a naturalist guide in the late 1990’s. More than fifteen years later it has not lost its allure. For Warren it is a privilege to be able to share wildlife encounters with those who may be visiting Africa for the first time. Even more so, to share in the adventures of travelers who return, time and again to explore more of the African continent. Warren knows that a brilliant wildlife guide must be able to do more than simply track and find animals. It’s about having a deep understanding of nature, animal behaviour and respect for both the environment and the wildlife. Warren takes you on a journey and calmly immerses you into the African bush allowing you to experience animal interactions in their most natural form. As you sit around the campfire at night you will be immersed in his stories about the sparkling southern night skies and the many adventures he has had traveling and guiding around Africa.
Warren completed his guide training through CCAfrica (now &Beyond) and spent his formative years guiding in the Sabi Sands at Londolozi Private Game Reserve. Before this, Warren became a paramedic during his compulsory South African military service. He has retained his accreditation and is certified as an Intermediate Life Support Paramedic. Warren is also a member of the American Heart Association. Warren’s work experience extends from guiding to managing lodges, remote luxury bush camps, mineral exploration camps as well as working in disaster management and training. His guiding and work experience has taken him from the vast Serengeti plains in Tanzania to the Okavango Delta in Botswana and the almost untouched reserves in Zambia. He has worked in the Sabi Sands, the Timbavati and many other wildlife regions in Southern Africa. Warren has also spent time working for Animal Planet as well as National Geographic on different projects through Southern Africa. He often serves a dual role of wildlife specialist and paramedic.
Warren combines a wealth of experience with a deep passion for guiding. As a natural people’s person he is an entertaining and ever professional host. His high level of integrity and work ethics ensures that every client leaves Africa wanting to come back for more. Through his diverse work experience Warren has a solid understanding of operations and logistics and knows how to ensure tours run smoothly. Warren is the ideal guide for wildlife and photographic safaris. With his level of paramedic experience he is the ideal choice for adventure trips. Warren’s positive outlook on life and easygoing nature are ideally suited for his career as a private naturalist guide. His enthusiasm and passion for Africa, its wildlife and people make Warren a first choice when it comes to selecting a private guide.
