Timothy JacksonGuide/Owner Jackson’s African Safaris

About Timothy Jackson

Timothy started his love of Africa and nature as a child growing up on a Dairy/sheep farm in rural England. At age 7, Robin & Pat Morgan retired next door to Timothy from Kenya having farmed in the Kenyan Highlands and lead safaris throughout Eastern Africa. This connection started the ‘safari bug’, that has now become a way of life for Timothy and to which he is most thankful.

At age 14, Timothy’s parents moved to British Columbia, Canada. The Morgan’s put Timothy in touch with The Hopcraft family living in BC, who had also moved away from Kenya; John Hopcraft was born and raised on one of many colonial farms from the 1920’s onward surrounding Lake Nakuru. In the years that followed, John and his wife Sandy worked closely with the World Wildlife Fund, Roger Troy Peterson and others to purchase all the farms around the lake, to then hand this land to the government to be turned into the National Park that it is today. It is these ‘connections’ that continued to inspire Timothy on his path to this very day.

Timothy has spent nearly 4 years of total time ‘on safari’ with clients, taking part in formal training and ‘on site’ inspections of camps over the last 16 years, visiting nearly every major National Park in Southern and Eastern Africa.  A great privilege as Timothy often points out, with much thanks to the camp owners & friends for supporting his learning and education!

Timothy is a partner of Jackson’s African Safaris (Pty) Ltd – a South African based and registered safari company.

Timothy spends time leading tours each year and the rest of the time at home in Nelson, B.C. Canada.

Background

Timothy has a background in agriculture & education, with 8 years teaching in the classroom, where he learned the art of living a life, of life-long learning. Undertaking formal field & trails guide training in South Africa and many cherished expeditions, primarily in Africa, leading his clients and guests, certainly makes for an exciting life, that Timothy is most thankful for.  Timothy notes how his company is built by his clients and friends – sharing the word, this he is most thankful for.

Timothy looks forward to working and traveling with you, on your trip of a lifetime!

David Lynn Tour Leader & Safari Consultant

About David

David was born and raised in the Central African country of Nyasaland – Malawi since 1964.

As a child, David traveled extensively throughout Central and Southern Africa with his parents and was exposed to the African bush from an early age. At the age of fourteen, his parents returned to live in England and on finishing school he could not wait to return to the African continent.

As a means to return to his beloved country, David joined the British South Africa Police, a paramilitary force in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) on a three year contract, but loved the outdoor life and work so much that he served for over twenty years in that Force and during that time, he spent extended periods in the African bush. He retired from the Force shortly after Zimbabwe gained independence.

David moved into the corporate world in South Africa and recently retired for the second time, after twenty seven years with the same multinational company.

David’s love of meeting people from different cultures and showing off the magnificent land in which he has had the privilege to live, drew him to become involved in travel and tourism.

Whilst attending a Travel Expo some years ago, he had the good fortune of meeting Timothy Jackson and discovered that he shared the same passion for Africa and an inherent love of natural and wild places. He also shared many of the same values as Timothy, which subsequently led to a partnership in Timothy’s successful safari business. He is currently Director of the South African based and registered company Jackson’s African Safaris (Pty) Ltd.

David has not only had the opportunity of traveling in Africa, but has traveled extensively overseas. He is married and has two married daughters and two grandchildren; his wife and eldest daughter have a total of 55 years service in the travel industry and lend their support to the business as necessary.

David is based in the Zulu Kingdom of Kwazulu Natal, South Africa.
