Tim Driman AKA "Gonondo"
Gonondo is the Zulu name given to Tim by his African staff many years back. It is the generic name given to the “inyanga” or medicine person, in a typical, ethnic Zulu village. The inyanga is highly perceptive, a good psychologist and an excellent judge of behaviour and character. To the rural villagers, these powers are seen as magical or “mtakathi” powers. (Tim is a fluent Zulu linguist with exceptional knowledge of Zulu ethnic culture and their traditions.) Retired entrepreneur, qualified FGASA Field and Trails Guide, and wildlife and nature photographer, Tim has grown up in the bush around South Africa, sometimes venturing as far as Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and Mozambique, paying close attention to the various styles of conservation management found in those areas. Tim is always ready for a challenge, project or adventure! His motto is “have cameras – will travel!”
