Managing Director, Kevin Macaulay has worked in the hospitality industry for over 20 years in South Africa, Tanzania, Botswana and Zambia. He is very knowledgeable about the sub-region and speaks a total of six local languages. Being passionate about the bush means that he will ensure that you get the shots you need, whilst keeping you safe so you can focus on the subject at hand. He is specialised in guiding and operations, being a Private Label guide for Abercrombie & Kent as well as Field Operations Manager for their 4 Zambian properties for a number of years, contributing to a total time of 10 years spent in operations management. Based in Lusaka, Zambia, Kevin is centrally located and this enables him to travel to most areas at a moment's notice.
With experience in all sorts of terrain, from the mountains of Tanzania to the untamed coastline of South Africa, Kevin is able to operate a wide variety of vehicles and boats to access the wildest corners of this great continent. While he was based in the Lower Zambezi National Park, Kevin was an examiner for the Lower Zambezi Guides Exams for the boating & fishing, driving, walking as well as canoeing examinations. Working in 5 of Zambia’s National Parks over the years, he has developed a strong relationship with the Department of National Parks & Wildlife, both at department headquarters in Lusaka and regionally. Having worked extensively with film crews throughout his career (click the 'Shows' button above for shoots he has been involved with), Kevin has a very clear understanding of crew requirements and this, combined with his knowledge of animal behaviour, will provide you with an opportunity to see and film many of the spectacular events that take place in the African wilderness.
Like humans, baby animals must all learn to thrive on this planet. Narrated by Academy Award nominee Helena Bonham Carter, and nominated for 5 Daytime Emmy's, the cuddly and cute documentary series Wild Babies invites us on several epic adventures. The 16 wild babies we meet across the globe are born into various circumstances and must prepare to navigate the years ahead. In eight 30-minute episodes filmed in locations like South Africa, Costa Rica and South Carolina, we follow these baby animals after birth as they grow, explore, and interact. Since cliff-hangers are through lines in the series, you’ll be desperate to learn what these adorable creatures get into next.
