South African Cultural and Wildlife Expert Invites You on a Special Once-In-A-Lifetime Journey
Lloyd Camp was raised in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and grew up camping, birding and hiking among the grasslands, forests and streams of the Drakensberg Mountains and the game-rich game reserves of the South African east coast. In 1997, he and his wife moved to the Okavango Delta of Botswana to manage high-end safari camps for Wilderness Safaris. Since 2009, Lloyd has specialized as a freelance private guide and guide trainer for a number of prominent safari organizations. He has led private client safaris as well as trips for Bukela Africa and Wilderness Safaris in all the wildlife areas of southern Africa. He also spends time in East Africa, guiding people to the mountain gorillas of Uganda and Rwanda, and the wildlife areas of Tanzania. His enormous ground base and experience in a wide range of differing ecosystems and cultures makes him a particularly engaging and knowledgeable guide and host. In 2012, he established Blue Crane Tourism, a private company which focuses on elegantly-designed safari experiences and itineraries, most of which he leads personally.
