My love and passion for the African bush and Africa in general drew me to become a safari guide in the early 90s. Sharing my love for the country and its people was what I loved and despite being a qualified safari guide – it drove me to eventually become an Africa specialist.
Over two decades later my passion for the African bush is stronger than ever. My playing grounds have extended throughout the continent. After all the years I have developed a fantastic Alexander Rostocil Team with specialized safari outfitters whom specialize in smaller exclusive safaris. It is a privilege for me to share wildlife encounters with guests, whether it is their first visit to Africa or their fifteenth, and it is as exciting for me to do so today as it was when I first started guiding.
Experience is Key
I know that an outstanding wildlife guide must be able to do more than simply track and locate animals – that should go without saying. What makes the difference between a good safari and a great one is a complete immersion into the rhythm of the bush, the endless subtleties and mysteries of the living landscape and its wildlife, big and small. I take equal delight in the charismatic mega fauna of the Big Five, and the wonders of the most seemingly ordinary of plants and grasses.
The Alexander Rostocil Team is ready to share this with our guests, whether out in the bush or gathered around the campfire under the African stars.
I did my guide training in South Africa and spent my early years as a guide, guiding for different safari operators in East Africa. In short, I combine a wealth of experience with a deep and enduring love of guiding. As a natural ‘people person’, I am entertaining, engaging and always a professional host. My integrity, range of experience and work ethic ensure that every safari runs smoothly.
