Ivan Carter  "In pursuit of all things wild and remote"

On Safari in Zimbabwe

Ivan Carter was born and raised in Zimbabwe. He began his wildlife career at a young age at a wildlife orphanage where he gained hands on experience in the rearing of sick and injured animals. In 1991, Carter became the youngest person to pass Zimbabwe's exacting Safari Guide Examinations and also holds Professional Hunter and Canoe Guide licenses. Today he guides through ten of Africa's top wildlife countries and is recognized as one of the best in the business. His forte is walking with big game where an intimate knowledge of the wildlife, from hundreds of days in the field, gives him the unique ability to approach them on foot.

Ivan is as comfortable leading a small group through his favorite habitat as he is addressing a rapt audience at Stanford University. In 2001 and again in 2003, he was invited by Stanford University to present lectures on “Observations of Wildlife” and “Monitoring Elephant Populations”. Ivan was recognized in the August 2001 issue of Travel and Leisure Magazine in their article “Follow the Leaders” featuring the best guides in Africa. In October 2002 he was featured in Conde Nast. An avid photographer, Ivan has held exhibitions in London and the Edinburgh Zoo in Scotland.
