Our Website

Much of the content of this site is derived from years of work undertaken by many in the community of the Kruger to Canyons area that culminated in the recognition of the region as a United Nation's Biosphere. A short list of those directly involved in the building of this website is below.

David founded this site ten years ago after contracting the bush bug whilst training as a Field Guide. He reacted in a stereotypical fashion by chucking in his job in strategy consulting, and swapped his carry-on suitcase for softer luggage. He has been lurking around these pages ever since.

A keen portfolio collector of interesting projects and small businesses, including some ill-advised stuff in Mozambique, he is a small shareholder in the quite beautiful Lissataba Private Game Reserve outside Hoedspruit and it is to here where he retreats when not pounding Southern Africa in search of better places to see and stay and things to do for you, or nursing his roots in rural Oxfordshire in the UK.

John has a considerable understanding of the landscapes of the big game region surrounding the Kruger from his 25 years here. He was instrumental in the establishment of the UNESCO Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Reserve, and was the founding Chairman of the Biosphere Trust in the late 90s and early 2000s.

Much of the rich information on this site (along with blood, tears and inspiration) has flowed across his desk.

The Williams' love of food and hospitality and their passion for the sea has seen them move to Stanford in the Cape Overberg. John is presently the Chairman of the Hemel en Aarde Conservancy. Who knows, maybe a Cape website is developing...

Pete has overseen the site from a technical perspective, providing a level of implementational focus and graft that has proved to be an inspiration. He built the framework on which the navigation structure is predicated and, whilst he was there, wrote the rest. Without his help, you might well not get beyond the front page.

A keen photographer, he is also running the Kruger2Canyons group on Flickr!.
