About me

Andrew Schofield is a South African National Cultural and Nature tour guide. Conservation has been the theme of his life with influences by many like-minded people that he has met over the years. As an ecologist, Andrew has had the privilege of lecturing to conservation students from all over the world. He has created wildlife reserves in areas that have not had the game on them for hundreds of years and has captured and translocated species like elephant, rhino, cheetah and lion and many of the antelope species, successfully habituating them to the new reserves. Andrew was the first person to release white lions back into the wild. This was a long and intense project that has resulted in that there are now free-roaming white lions in Africa due to his and his team’s perseverance.  These conservation projects have culminated in a book,  “White Lion back to the wild” which tells the story of how the white lions were returned to their natural habitat and how game reserves are created. Andrew has a passion for Africa and nothing gives him greater pleasure than introducing guests to the wildlife, birdlife and the different plant kingdoms represented here. He has also done extensive research on the rock art of Southern Africa which has resulted in a documentary film. Cultural and historical aspects are vital to understanding the makeup of Southern Africa and her people and Andrew has done comprehensive studies in these fields.  Being a National tour guide, Andrew is able to guide guests to all of the provinces in South Africa and has been a tour leader on expeditions to other African countries like Botswana, Namibia, Kenya, Tanzania, the Indian Ocean Islands and more. Based in Cape Town, he is very knowledgeable of the history, culture, and nature of the Western Cape. He enjoys day hikes in the mountains of the Cape and loves to take guests to the world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and up the slopes of Table Mountain, to see the fauna, flora and the stunning views of Cape Town and the Western Cape.
