Leon Marais
Leon is an experienced professional birding and wildlife guide, and a partner in Lawson’s Birding, Wildlife & Custom Safaris. He’s been plying these birding routes mentioned since 2005, with birders from all over the world under his wing. He’s also involved with setting up tours and itineraries for international birders, though of course the global pandemic has put the brakes on this for the time being. And although he’s led tours in many different countries on the continent, eastern South Africa remains a firm favourite, and the Kruger National Park in particular is one of his top birding and wildlife destinations. He’s also written articles on birding and travel in general for a wide range of publications, and has given talks on birding and wildlife at the British Birdfair in the UK.
