Head Guide

Morgan

Morgan used to spend his school holidays at Aberfoyle Lodge caddying to make some extra pocket money to help towards his school fees. One day a group of birders asked him if he knew a certain bird that they were desperate to see. He said yes and showed them a couple of very special birds. He didn’t know the names of the birds but he did know how to find them from the pictures of the guide books. Morgan claims that he was never good at soccer as a little boy so he spent a lot of time with nature. From that day he was bought a bird book and some binos and is now one of Southern Africa’s top local bird guides.
