As a fourth generation Kenyan, and third generation safari guide, Sean was raised with an instinctive appreciation of his surroundings. Growing up in the bush with his father, he gained a unique understanding not only of the geology, mammals and birds of Africa, but also of its rich tribal cultures.
After living on Lewa Wildlife Conservancy until the age of five, he was schooled at the International School of Kenya, and after graduating from the University of Montana, followed in the footsteps of his father Nigel, who is also a professional guide.
Sean has led a wide range of luxury and adventure safaris across Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Namibia. He has also led expeditions up Mount Kenya and Mount Kilimanjaro, trips down the Nile, and helicopter safaris to active volcanoes, to the deserts of northern Kenya, and to the famous fossil sites around Lake Turkana.
Guests routinely describe Sean’s “passion for wildlife and boundless energy” as among the most inspirational parts of their safaris. He spends his free time adventuring in remote parts of the continent, photographing and sculpting the wildlife he loves. His other interests include archaeology, fly-fishing, cooking (including his now-famous sweet chilli sauce), scuba diving, hiking, and rock climbing.
