ORYX Photography: Photo Tour Leader: Glen Valentineprevious page
Glen Valentine grew up in South Africa’s Gauteng province where his unquestionable passion for birds and wildlife began at an extremely early age. His interest mounted as he explored every corner of Southern Africa with his family and at the age of 19, broke his brother, Keith’s record of becoming the youngest person to have seen 850 species of birds in the Southern African sub-region (Keith is also a full-time Rockjumper guide). Glen has been guiding full-time for Rockjumper in remote corners of Africa, Asia, Australasia, Madagascar and Brazil for more than a decade and has thus built an extensive knowledge of the birds and natural history of those regions. Glen also holds to his name a bachelor of commerce degree in accounting sciences from the University of South Africa. His exceptional birding skills and personable nature coupled with his extreme levels of enthusiasm will ensure a fantastic and memorable tour with Glen.
