Safari Guide

Chris Stamper

Growing up in South Africa, Chris’ love of the natural world materialized at a very young age, thanks to family explorations of the country’s national parks and preserves. Chris set out to turn his passion for wildlife into a career and has spent the past 17 years working in the African bush progressing from animal tracker to guide, and now professional trainer and private safari guide. Chris’ in-depth knowledge of—and uncanny ability to spot—Africa’s flora and fauna; warm and inviting personality; and genuine appreciation for Africa’s beauty and people are as captivating as the Continent itself, and will leave guests yearning to experience its magic time and again. Chris has inspired and delighted guests on safaris in Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
