During his time as a high school science teacher, Samuel grew to love the outdoors. Seeing the potential benefits of adventure for personal development, he decided that becoming more involved with outdoor education was the next step in life.

He has since lead many ‘journey type’ hiking trips with school groups, predominantly in the wilderness areas surrounding Loskop dam. While not guiding trips, Samuel can often be found rock climbing in areas near his home base of Pretoria. Samuel enjoys helping others get the most out of their outdoor experiences and always looks forward to the next adventure. Samuel has extensive experience with Rock climbing, hiking and abseiling.
