Tony Carnie

South African Country Life - - Contributors -

Dur­ban free­lance writer Tony Carnie spent his boy­hood in Kenya and Zim­babwe in the twi­light era of wild, open spa­ces. It was a time when town and city boys could still jump on their bi­cy­cles and find places to fish, shoot or just muck about far from the malls, man­i­cured sub­urbs and elec­tronic gad­getry of to­day.Tony flirted with the idea of be­com­ing a game ranger, an ar­chae­ol­o­gist or a wildlife vet but landed up be­hind a type­writer as a news re­porter in Dur­ban and later, an en­vi­ron­ment writer. Tony and his wife Sheena try to get away from key­boards and com­puter screens when­ever they can to ex­plore the con­ti­nent’s van­ish­ing wild ar­eas with their two sons, Ben and Sam (pic­tured). Read Search­ing for the Gamka Ze­bras on page 48.
