The team

The Braine’s are known for their extensive knowledge in all things natural. Steve Braine has been involved with ornithology and natural history within Namibia from a very young age, contributing invaluable data to Namibian Ornithology and natural history. He has passed his on-going enthusiasm and love for natural history to his two sons Sean and Dayne who have taken over the majority of the guiding. They are all-round naturalists and enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge.
