Alistair Smith

I left a promising corporate career in pursuit of a burning passion for the great outdoors and a desire for more fulfilling and more authentic wilderness experiences.

Following a relatively short professional guiding career at Londolozi Private Game Reserve, South Africa, I arrived at the realization that my true passion was for travel, adventure and wildlife photography.
