About Ranger Buck Safaris
Who Is Ranger Buck?
I am Ranger Buck – a South African born and bred adventurer and traveller extraordinaire. I grew up in the Johannesburg area, but spent as much free time as possible on the family’s game farm, on the Limpopo River bordering Zimbabwe. This is where I first discovered my love for nature and wildlife. The farm visits, coupled with our numerous visits to the Kruger National Park over the decades, have fuelled my love of the wild, which I now aim to share with you.
During my time at University I was given the nickname “Buck” by my friends. This name has stuck with me ever since. Soon after I qualified as a game ranger, I started taking friends and family on safaris. It was during these early years that I became known as Ranger Buck.
Over the years I have travelled the globe, visiting nearly 60 countries in search of adventure. I have summited Kilimanjaro, the highest peak on the African continent, completed various ultra-marathons, competed in extreme cycling events on five continents, and paddled the famous Fish River Canoe Marathon.
I have a degree in Civil Engineering, but my love for the African bush inspired me to change career paths and share my love and knowledge of Africa and her wildlife with people from around the world.
I am here to arrange and deliver your dream luxury safari experience and share my passion for Africa with you!
