If you enjoy birding, then you simply cannot afford to miss a fundraising talk by Adam Riley of Rockjumper Worldwide Birding Adventures, who will be speaking at the Msunduzi Hospice Conference Centre in Zwartkop Road, Prestbury, at 8?am on Saturday.
The subject of his talk will be the birds, wildlife and tribes of Ethiopia, one of Africa’s richest birding destinations, and one which also has unique wildlife and traditional tribes.
Riley has travelled extensively, leading tours to countries ranging from Colombia to Egypt, Angola to Papua New Guinea, and Antarctica to Alaska. He is one of Africa’s most experienced birders, having seen over 2?000 species on the continent and 7?000 species worldwide.
Raised in KwaZulu-Natal, he qualified as a chartered accountant in 1998, but his career path took an alternative route when he founded Rockjumper Birding Tours with his friend, Jonathan Rossouw.
Since 2000, Riley has been the sole owner and managing director of Rockjumper, and also founded Indri — Ultimate Mammal Voyages in 2008 and Oryx — Worldwide Photographic Safaris in 2010.
Tickets to the Hospice talk cost R100, which includes breakfast. Tables seat 12. To book your seat, phone 033?344?1560 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
