Guide Profile: Tim Smith
Erindi’s Facebook Fans will be quite familiar with Tim’s photos and stories appearing every week.
Timmy “Nighthawk” Smith is “Zimauswean” – this means that he was born in Zimbabwe and he grew up in Australia!
“As a guide at Erindi, I love trying to get guests to see every possible animal they want to see.
I love to show guests animal interactions, much more exciting than seeing a lion sleeping – try lions roaring, mating or hunting for example!!”
BIRDING is a special interest of Tim’s. Big raptors are tops on his list together with trying to find the rare yellow morph crimson breasted shrike!
“Like all people, I love leopards but finding them is a difficult story – alas the entire experience of driving through leopard territories and finding just track to begin with is great and when I do get to see one I feel incredibly privileged!”
On his time off, Tim is a very enthusiastic photographer and has a unique passion for catching snakes and photographing them.
Tim completed the FGASA affiliated EcoTraining course in early 2011 & he is currently working towards completion as an Erindi LEVEL 1 GUIDE. He takes fantastic game drives!
Tim will be going on holiday in Australia for a month, so his regular updates will be temporarily missed, but he has ensured us that he will be bringing back some new camera equipment, which will result in some more brilliant photos.
