Jamie Paterson

“The bush has been a passion of mine since a very young age and I can’t imagine leading any other kind of life than the one I do now.”

Jamie Peterson has an Honors Law degree from the University of Cambridge, England. Her real passion, however, is the African savannah… especially on foot.

Jamie was born in Johannesburg. After completing A-levels in South Africa, she went to the UK and spent three years at Cambridge University studying law. On successfully completing her honours, she returned to South Africa and decided to head into the wilderness.

She immediately went into guide training and started working at a research organization as a walking/driving field guide. There she specialized mainly in rhino and elephant dynamics within the reserve. After years of doing this, which included travelling through many other reserves, she joined safariLIVE.
