Kenya Big Cat Safari - Guide Profile for Jackson Looseyia


Found out more about Jackson Looseyia - your expert guide for the Kenya big cat safari in February 2016.

Jackson was born and bred in the heart of Kenya’s Maasai Mara, where in 1987 he became one of the Maasai Mara’s first field guides. He has an intimate knowledge of the flora and fauna of this region, as well as an expert knowledge of the Mara’s big cats and their behaviours. As well as being recognised as one of the world’s 10 best field guides many will also know Jackson as a guide and presenter on the famous BBC’s ‘Big Cat Live’ productions and BBC’s ‘Planet Earth Live’.  In addition Jackson was a key advisor to the Disney nature feature film production ‘African Cats’ and is a regular advisor and contributor to many other nature documentaries filmed in Kenya.

Not only is Jacksons knowledge of African wildlife unparalleled but his passion and enthusiasm for the endemic wildlife is infectious. After a day’s game driving Jackson will also join us in the evening around the camp fire to share his many fascinating and humorous stories of his encounters with wildlife and his interesting life growing up in Kenya’s Maasai Mara.
