Freddie Sutton

Freddie Sutton - Zambia & Zimbabwe specialist

Specialist countries:


Freddie has always had a passion for two things, wildlife and travel. After leaving school he spent three months in Tanzania, exploring the northern parks and completing a climb of Kilimanjaro, discovering that Africa was the perfect continent for combining theses interests.

Going on to study Zoology at the University of Bristol, Freddie took every opportunity to visit some of the best wildlife sites in the world, taking time to study tropical bats in Costa Rica, and gaining his FGASA (Field Guide Association of Southern Africa) level one nature guide qualification after studying in Kruger National Park.

Having completed his studies, Freddie undertook an internship with the University of York’s environment department, assisting with research into forest conservation methods. This led to him living and working in the Udzungwa Mountains in Southern Tanzania, surveying monkeys and trees, and investigating how tourism can be integrated with conservation projects.

After briefly working in the UK as an ecological consultant Freddie realised that the Essex countryside couldn’t match the draw of the African bush, and is now training as a Zambia specialist at Expert Africa. He completed his first trip, visiting the South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi National Parks, in October 2014, and very much looks forward to becoming an Expert on Zambia and its wildlife.
