I’m a professional field guide and a naturalist for National Geographic’s Safari Live—AMA!
Thanks so much for your questions! I had a lot of fun answering them, but I’ve gotta run now dinner is calling and the crew here are like ravenous hyenas on a buffalo, so if I'm to get any I need to go ;-)
Hi my name is Tristan Dicks and I’m a professional field guide and a naturalist for WildEarth.tv where twice a day we host interactive and live shows about the African wilderness. Born and raised in the big city of Johannesburg, South Africa, a love of the bush was instilled in me early on. My grandparents were avid bush lovers and whenever the opportunity presented itself, they would whisk me away to the Kruger National Park with them on holiday. These trips inspired a love and interest for the natural world. Over the past ten years I have guided permanently in South Africa's Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Kenya's Maasai Mara, when not at work I spend my time wandering through the many wildlife destinations of the world fulfilling my passion for big cats, photography and experiencing the truly incredible moments nature gifts us.
