Chris Renshaw

Chris knew that he would be in the conservation and tourism field from an early age. It all started from a mother who was brought up in Kenya, and a father who hitchhiked from London to Johannesburg. After some incredible adventures, his parents finally settled in South Africa. Not long after, the whole family continued to do adventures, and they travelled the continent extensively. With that background, it was inevitable that after school Chris would decide to study Zoology and was fortunate enough to obtain a BSc Honours degree in Zoology. Looking for practical experience, he found himself a job as a guide in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. From here he felt it necessary to broaden his knowledge, and as such he did a Master’s degree in Zoology. After working as a specialist scientist in the aquatic field, Chris started a business that would focus on very high end safari travel, which was successful right up until his departure. Having 17 years of guiding experience, with 11 years of those being as a private guide and business owner, Chris felt that there was something missing… the opportunity to make a difference! This was where Conserv concept was born and the next adventure begins.

“For a while now I have personally felt that I have not been doing enough for the future of conservation and responsible tourism. I feel there is a great need for the young leaders of tomorrow from all walks of life to be shown that you can indeed make a difference. With the right guidance and exposure to Africa, guests of all ages who are seeking purposefull impact can assist in keeping wild places wild, uplift communities and support the right players in African tourism. Along with some key partners in the conservation and tourism sector, I believe this is possible.” – Chris Renshaw
