Tour Guide Profile: Rich Lindie
Rich Lindie has spent over a decade travelling, birding and photographing on every continent, amassing an incredible knowledge of the world’s birds and wildlife in the process. Efficient, sharp, enthusiastic and humorous, Rich enjoys showing others the natural world as much as he loves discovering its wonders for himself; and, in addition, he is a highly proficient photographer.
Rich was too young to remember when his passion for the outdoors began, but certainly remembers his first pair of binoculars when he was only a few years old! It was this that began his obsession with Southern African wildlife and ultimately lead to a passion for conservation, a degree in Wildlife and Environmental Science, and his first guiding posts, in Peru and Ecuador. Since then, he has moved from one continent to the next for over a decade, birding extensively and capturing each area’s wildlife through his camera lens, both above and below the water. His image sales continue to fund further worldwide exploration but Rich enjoys the natural world that much more when he gets to share it with others, as is evident in his enthusiasm, humour and efficiency.
