Warren has an encyclopaedic knowledge of African flora and fauna and keen observational powers.
Ten years ago, I had the great good luck of sitting next to Warren Pearson on a flight to the Oppenheimer private South African game preserve, Tswalu. He was going there to guide another group but I was impressed with his intelligence and great knowledge of Africa. We kept in touch and I asked him to organise a trip to Tanzania and Rwanda a couple of years later. He has subsequently organised three additional trips for our family to South Africa, Kenya and Botswana, including one with my 89-year-old mother, who never missed a game drive.
