Steve Conradie - Managing Director - Operations

Throughout Steve's childhood, his grandfather took him on dozens of trips to South Africa's parks, teaching him about animals, birds, plants, landscapes and the lore of the bush.

As an adult, Steve continued exploring, criss-crossing sub-Saharan Africa in his Land Rover. In 2002, he set out on a six-month drive that took him all the way to the Serengeti in Tanzania. On his return, he met Andre Van Kets.
