Nick Evans

Nick Evans is the founder of KZN Amphibian & Reptile Conservation, and spends all of his time trying to educate people about these misunderstood animals. As well as removing unwanted snakes from homes, writing, and presenting snake awareness talks, Nick also takes people out ‘frogging’- searching for the beautiful frog species that KZN has to offer! However, that is a night time activity.

During the day, Nick takes people out to actively look for snakes in the field. This can be challenging, but it can also be hugely rewarding.

Lee Fuller

Growing up on his parents’ ranch in rural Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa, the call of the wild chimed early for Lee.   

Lee has been private guiding since 2010, and there are only a few African wildlife hotspots he has not visited. Leading safaris throughout southern and east Africa, and the Indian Ocean Islands, Lee has developed a additional passion for Madagascar during his professional career. Along with his wife Claire, daughter Ali Mae, and 4 lively dogs, Lee lives in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

He runs an outdoor education business when he’s not on safari, taking groups of children on journeys, expeditions and wilderness skills camps.
