Paul was born and grew up in Gaborone, whilst his family hails from Serowe. From a young age Paul has been interested in all things related to wildlife, being very involved with Wildlife Club at Gaborone Secondary School. After school Paul served a year's national service in a remote area of the Gemsbok National Park, with the Department of Wildlife & National Parks as a game scout. From there he found employment as a general labourer at Mokolodi Nature Reserve near Gaborone where his passion for the bush was soon spotted and he was soon promoted to game scout.
He was one of the first people at the reserve to receive his guide's license, and he was then promoted to Environmental Educator. The main function of the reserve as a charitable foundation was to raise funds through tourism, in order to enable under privileged children to experience wildlife. Paul found this to be his life's passion and his job evolved to overseeing all operations of the reserve's education centre. In 2000 he left the reserve to further his own life experiences in Botswana's northern regions.
Paul next worked as a guide in the Selinda for 3 years becoming well known for his friendly nature and excellent guiding skills. He never lost the desire to be involved with kids and was in charge of the company's community projects, spending a period of each year visiting village schools to teach the children about their natural heritage.
The opportunity to manage Ker & Downey''s Young Explorer's led him to join Ker & Downey in 2004, when he took over the management of Footsteps Across the Delta walking program and the Young Explorer's safaris. The program has gone from strength to strength and is increasingly popular with families wishing to enjoy Botswana's wilderness together.
