Classic Africa Welcomes Jacques Proust!



In our on-going efforts to enhance our contribution to eco-tourism and conservation in Africa, we are pleased to welcome Jacques Proust to our Classic Africa family!

Jacques is Cape Town born and raised. Growing up on the slopes of Table Mountain, he developed a love of nature from a tender age, receiving his first birding reference book at age 10, and has been honing his guiding and photography skills ever since! Accompanying his professional photographer father, Jacques traveled extensively throughout southern Africa as a youngster, exploring all the great ecosystems of the region, and immersing himself in the excitement and adventure of safari.




Unsurprisingly, Jacques' passion for nature led him to study Ecology and Biodiversity at the University of Stellenbosch, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree. After working for a few years in South Africa's renewable energy sector, the call of the bush was too strong, and Jacques spent the next several years as a senior safari guide at the world-renowned MalaMala Game Reserve adjoining the Kruger National Park. In between guiding at MalaMala and in Cape Town, Jacques has also worked in conservation, including time in Botswana's Okavango Delta and a stint in Saudi Arabia, researching Arabian leopards for the Panthera organization.  



Jacques' incredible knowledge of African wildlife and ecosystems, his extensive experience as a guide to discerning travelers, and his passion for Africa's people and wild places make him a perfect fit for Classic Africa, and we're excited to welcome him as part of our team! Jacques will be working to boost our online and social media presence – if you aren't already following us on Instagram or Facebook, please do by clicking here and here - and helping us to create and deliver the perfect safari for every single Classic African traveler!
