After growing up in the KwaZulu-Natal hinterland in South Africa, Brent Leo-Smith knew that a career in the bush was inevitable. He was home schooled at Phinda Resource Reserve in South Africa for his formative years and as a result is a real ‘wild child’.
He then tried his hand at studying law, but the bush called him back, resulting in 6 months spent in Zambia doing crocodile and game capture and running game farms. He returned to Botswana and worked for his father at Kwando Safaris, before making the move to Kruger National Park to take up a position as a guide at the Lebombo Concession. He later went to work at Londolozi Game Reserve as a guide and camp manager. Brent is an avid fisherman, who has always taken the time to fish during his extensive travels.
