Having worked for many years in the conservation field, Owain has always had a strong interest in all things wildlife-related. Before catching the travel bug he managed a nature reserve where he ran guided tours, managed livestock, and conducted wildlife surveys. Whilst volunteering with a bird charity in Hungary, Owain discovered a passion for travelling and since then he has been fortunate enough to travel the world.
It was when he arrived in South Africa that he was absolutely blown away by the diversity the country has to offer, including wildlife, history, landscapes and different cultures.
In his spare time, Owain enjoys gardening, bird watching, music, fitness and renovating his house in Oxfordshire.
I'll never forget when…
De Kelders offered a welcome stop for me as I travelled the beautiful south coast. Nothing quite prepared me for the incredible experience of viewing the southern right whales breeching in Walkers Bay. Watching the sun set into the distance and then later on, the night become ablaze with stars made it an unforgettable day.
