ORYX Photography: Photo Tour Leader: Clayton Burneprevious page
Clayton Burne hails from Durban, South Africa. His passion for birds led him to work at the Durban Natural Science Museum, where he conducted research in the Lesotho Highlands and most of the KwaZulu-Natal forests and wetlands. Following five years of safari guiding in southern Africa, he moved to the United Kingdom to pursue a career in corrective eye surgery. When the occasional few weeks birding in the tropics each year became unsatisfactory, Clayton packed his bags and headed to South America. What followed was a year of birding by bicycle and motorbike covering most of the continent, during which time he was able to accumulate a very in-depth knowledge of the region’s birds and wildlife. Clayton is now a full-time Rockjumper Birding Tours leader.
