Steve Braine

Steve Braine lives in Windhoek, Namibia. Encouraged to take an interest in wildlife and natural history from a very early age by his father, Steve inherited his father’s love of birds and butterflies in particular and is probably the only person in Namibia with four butterflies named after him! Steve has become one of Namibia’s leading natural history experts. After an initial spell as an exploration geologist, he left to study nature conservation and then spent nine years in Skeleton Coast Park (and it was his experiences there that formed the foundation for his expertise on, and love for, the Namib Desert). Steve and his wife Louise (and their two sons) used to own remote Hobatere Lodge on the western border of Etosha, and Steve nowadays leads ornithological and wildlife tours all over Namibia and beyond.
