Pierre Burton, a third generation Kenyan, grew up living under canvas in the African bush. To this day Pierre still feels most at home when out on safari, whether with guests or friends. He completed his education in Switzerland with a diploma in Tourism Management and since his return has taken an active involvement in East African tourism and conservation. His love of the bush is contagious, and his knowledge superb.
