DOB – 21 February 1988
HOME TOWN – Iringa, Tanzania
A proud Tanzanian national, Greg also has some Southern African flavor, having attended primary school in Zambia, and finishing the rest of his education in South Africa. After completing BSc studies in Cape Town (Zoology and Environmental Science), Greg finally returned full time to his native Tanzania. After two years spent in the hustle of Dar-es-Salaam, it was time for a lifestyle change, and his attention was turned on the magnificent Mlimba tiger fishery, which had long been on his radar. Always an outdoors man, the fishing guiding offers the ideal combination of quality time spent in the wilderness, with being able to follow other interests such as agricultural endeavours, sport, and a passion for leisure time.
