ORYX Photography: Photo Tour Leader: Douglas McCullochprevious page
Doug was born in Zimbabwe, and spent a typical southern African childhood outdoors there and in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands of South Africa. He has been a keen birder since the age of 13, an interest which expanded into a passion for all aspects of natural history and ecology. He has spent the last fifteen years as a professional consulting ecologist, providing specialist ecological advice on natural resource and biodiversity management to private, government and large corporate clients throughout Africa.
A qualified rangeland scientist, he also holds an MSc degree in Conservation Biology from the University of the Witwatersrand. A desire for new experiences led to the opportunity to join Rockjumper as a full-time guide. Doug also spent two extremely enjoyable years as a ranger at the world-renowned Mala Mala Game Reserve prior to commencing his consulting career.
My enjoyment and enthusiasm are enhanced by sharing in my clients’ excitement at seeing something new. I have been fortunate to gain a wealth of field experience over the years, during my studies, my career and in my free time, which is also a fundamental strength as a tour leader.
