Lawson’s Birding, Wildlife and Custom Safaris opened its doors in 1990 and is currently the original South Africa birding company. Back then there were very few resources available to the birder, such as the where-to-find books; very different to the websites and apps available today. Many of the routes, stakeouts, and hotspots that Lawson’s still use were first pioneered by our own Peter Lawson over twenty-five years ago.
Since those early years, Lawson’s has grown in stature and scope, and even though Peter retired in 2010, we still retain that family business ethos, with Peter’s daughter Mavourneen Pearce as the brains behind the operation. Mavourneen is assisted by her business partner Leon Marais, who also leads many of the Africa wildlife safaris tours. They are in turn are assisted by our small and able team, comprising Sue Ricketts in reservations, Lyndell Luyt as Mavourneen’s able assistant and handler of the set-departures, Nadine Strydom as a fleet manager, and John Davies as our Central and East African specialist and able tour leader.
Lawson’s has also established relationships with a number of capable and trusted freelance guides across the country, whom we use for many of our regional South Africa wildlife safaris.
Africa wildlife safaris and birding tours include set-departures, custom safaris, and ground operations for a number of reputable tour operators from the UK, USA, Australia, and Asia. Lawson’s pride themselves on a superb organisation, attention to detail and excellent guides. All in all, we strive to create fun, rewarding and memorable birding, wildlife and photographic safaris – that’s the bottom line.
Lawson’s Birding and Wildlife Tours does not have any conservation news at present to share.
