Sean Braine was born while his parents were living on the famous Skeleton Coast National Park where his father, renowned naturalist Steve Braine, was working as a ranger. After growing up in such a pristine wilderness area, a life working with wildlife followed. After completing his studies he worked as a fly-fishing and bird guide at a lodge on the Zambezi River in the eastern Caprivi. He was then promoted and was transferred to a lodge on the Kwando River where he worked as Lodge manager for three years. From there, Sean led specialised birding trips and guided walks with big game. He has since led many birding and general wildlife tours throughout the country and has a deep understanding of the Namibian environment and its wildlife.



"Sean is an outstanding leader with excellent birding and personal skills, knowledge of the country and the wildlife, and a great sense of humor. He was very accommodating to the personal needs of members of the group. The birding was terrific, as was the wildlife viewing."
- Alan B. on Namibia

"Sean was experienced and always reassuring, and he found all the birds possible to see in each area, plus new ones. He was never irritated with anyone, dealt with all issues easily. Nothing fazed him! He was generous with his time and always available. He has a great attitude and can get along with everyone. He knew the birds well and was able to tell us about the other animals and reptiles and insects as well, plus some of the geology of the region. I would be delighted to travel with him again."
- Sandra J. on Namibia
