Starting his guiding career at Mala Mala in 2006, Nic had finally begun to realize a lifelong dream of working closely with wildlife in one of Africa’s great safari destinations. The urge to further discover the continent’s wild places lead him to take up the position of Conservation Ecologist for Okavango Wilderness Safaris, where he worked closely with a government/ private sector partnership in a number of big projects including the reintroduction of Black and White rhinos back into Botswana.

Having been born, raised and educated (Zoology Honours degree) in Cape Town, Nic has always remained close to the heart of the tourism industry and loves to share the wonders of his home town with guests on safari in Africa. With a decade spent working across some of the wild areas of this great continent, Nic’s all-round ability gives guests the ultimate experience. Always with a camera in hand and being a very keen travel-writer, he loves to document and share information from the magical places of our wild Africa and leads tours to various parts of the continent most often as a naturalist. Nic is keen to further tie in conservation and tourism and get more involved with ‘safaris that have purpose’.

Born to a father who was the Chief Warden of the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Management, Alf spent all his junior years outdoors, until in 1994 where he joined the Professional Guide training program in Zimbabwe. After taking 3 years to attain this license, he has been sharing the treasures and mysteries of the great African wilderness with safari travelers to the continent for the past 20 years.

Over the past few years Alf has conducted most of his safaris in Tanzania, Botswana, Rwanda and of course, Zimbabwe where he understands the vital role guides play in ensuring his guests have the best African safari.  His guiding has evolved to focus on private family safaris, VIP safaris in East and Southern Africa. This has seen him conduct safaris in the arid Kalahari sand veld, walking with elephants in the Okavango Delta, rhino tracking in Zimbabwe, as well as trekking Gorillas in Rwanda. Often with a camera in hand, he captures special moments across Africa’s wild areas and always plans his safaris well in advance making sure all guests’ particular interests are well researched so he can create personalized, heightened safari experiences and also fulfill the excitement, anticipation and their expectations.

TMAC Charles

Charles Ratcliffe

Professional Photographer & Private Safari Guide

+27 82 687 8967
trout@universe.co.za

Charlie aka “Trout” grew up in Cape Town and from an early age had strong ties to exploring the environment. Both his parents actively sought to travel and explore southern Africa with 3 kids in tow. His formative years were, as Charlie puts it, “like paging through a copy of National Geographic”. 

After completing his schooling at St Andrew’s College, Charlie did a game ranger apprenticeship at one of the bush lodges in Mpumalanga province, adjacent to the Kruger National Park. Having obtained a diploma in Nature Conservation from Cape Tecknikon, he then returned to the area to lead guided tours. Furthering his studies, Charlie obtained a Masters degree at the University of Cape Town through the FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology. He was involved in several projects including, “The effects of small predators on gamebird species”, and his thesis, “Factors affecting the decline in Helmeted Guineafowl populations in KwaZulu-Natal.”

Subsequently, Charlie returned to his guiding roots, and has been guiding for the last 17 years using Cape Town as his base. Being both a qualified cultural  and field (Safari) guide, Charlie has the unique position of being able to guide you through a variety of experiences, whether they be in a urban setting, or hosting you in the wilderness on safari. He is married with 2 daughters, and his travels have crisscrossed Africa to include Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Zambia, Angola and Tanzania. Gabon is next… “an awesome cocktail of my 3 passions – birds, wildlife photography and fly-fishing.”
