As a fourth generation Kenyan, and third generation safari guide, Sean was raised with an instinctive appreciation of his surroundings. Growing up in the bush with his father, he gained a unique understanding not only of the geology, mammals and birds of Africa, but also its culture.
After living on Lewa Wildlife Conservancy until the age of 5, he was schooled at the International School of Kenya, and after graduating from the University of Montana, followed in the footsteps of his father Nigel, who is also a professional safari guide.
Sean has led a wide range of luxury and adventure safaris in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Namibia. He has also led trips up Mount Kenya and Mount Kilimanjaro, trips down the Nile, and helicopter expeditions to active volcano’s, to the deserts of northern Kenya, and to the famous fossil sites around Lake Turkana.

Sean knows how to get you in the exact right place at the right time for the best wildlife photography. And he’s got the compositional eye and teaching skills to help you get the best photos.
