Lee Gutteridge was born in Sheffield, England, in 1973. His family moved to South Africa in 1982. Since his first encounters with snakes in the mid-eighties he has been passionate about African wildlife. He is now a professional field guide with 19 years' of bush experience. He is the principal trainer of the Entabeni Nature Guide Training School. Passionate about the learning and sharing of knowledge, his first book, the best-selling South African Bushveld—A Field Guide from the Waterberg, was published in 2008. He has also co-authored San Rock Art: A Field Guide (2011). He lives in the eastern Waterberg with his wife Sarah and his two children, Kellen and Savannah. Tony Reumerman was born and raised on the Highveld of South Africa and from an early age developed an interest in bird, insect and plant life. He was schooled at St. John Bosco College in Daleside where his interest in natural history unfolded, becoming an obsession during his years as a soldier and later as a microbiology student. Excursions into wildlife areas in southern Africa became so regular that he decided to pursue his passion and work as a field guide. He was to spend eight years guiding, managing and training other guides at Sabi Sabi Game Reserve in the Kruger region before moving, in 2000, to the Okavango where he joined Wilderness Safaris. He heads up the training team and has an avid interest in mammal behaviour, photography, botany and ornithology. Tony is based in Maun where he lives with his wife Andrea and son Aidan.
