Synopsis of Brad Stevens
I began my career by studying 'Nature Conservation' at the Tshwane University of Technology (2006-2009).I then completed my practical year(January 2010-January 2011) at Namaqua National Park in the Northern Cape. While Namaqua NP does not boast of large herds of game or the big five, it does have a wide array of plants, insects and reptiles. My time there ignited a real passion for the smaller things(especially insects) in nature, which continues to this day.

After my year at Namaqua NP I was a volunteer at a private lodge near Hoedspruit. This is real big five territory and it was here the I learned and acquired much experience working with more dangerous game ,especially lions. After about a year, I returned to Pretoria and was offered part time positions as a facilitator at two camps (namely Camp NELU and Camp Tholo)
 
Here we conducted environmental educational camps for school children (Grade 3-12) . Whilst on a camp I was offered a part time guiding position at Rietvlei coffee shop and lion tours, naturally I jumped at the opportunity and began guiding while still working the occasional camp. Gradually my work and responsibilities increased at the coffee shop and I stopped doing camps, to focus on the lion tours.

In December 2012 I was appointed as the Head Guide and Manager. Since I have been working here I have completed my First Aid Level One, NQF Level Two (via Drumbeat Academy) obtained a PDP license and registered as a guide with the Gauteng Tourism Authority. I have also done extensive training with members of Rietvlei Nature Reserve's management, in order to conduct hiking and horse riding tours within the reserve.
