Doug Macdonald- Professional Safari Guide

Doug Macdonald was born in Zimbabwe in 1969 and comes from a family that have strong ties and history on the continent of Africa. His Grandfather was also one of the first Europeans to canoe down the Zambezi River from the Sanyati River through into Mozambique in his quest to find minerals.

Doug’s Father was also like minded and spent much of his young adulthood hunting and prospecting for minerals and then teaching some of this bush craft to Doug and his two brothers. It was from here that Doug developed his early passion for the African Bush as much of school holiday time was spent in the bush on family holidays.

Doug first joined the safari industry in 1989 working in Hwange National Park at the Hwange Safari Lodge while completing his college degree in Hotel and Catering Management. Once completed he began working on Spurwing Island in the Matusadona National Park where he then concentrated on achieving his Zimbabwe Professional Guides License which he passed in 1997.

Doug has travelled and guided through many countries in Africa to all of the well known safari areas and also to some very unusual destinations as well, but it is Mana Pools that has a special draw for Doug, and so he has a lot of experience and knowledge of this park and the wild areas of Africa that Doug will bring to your Safari experience to make it as interesting and exciting as possible.
