RYAN JOHNSON

For over 20 years I have lived, explored, filmed and researched the natural world of Africa and beyond. From the charismatic great white shark to the endangered white rhino, my passion is, and always will be, the natural wonders of the African Continent

RESEARCH

For over 15 years I have conducted research on Africa's shark species. Through collaboration with many of the regions top academic minds, we have revealed the hidden lives of South Africa's sharks and marine megafauna.

 

DOCUMENTARY

I am a wildlife and shark documentary filmmaker and contributor. I offer services as a host, scientific talent, underwater and topside camera operator, researcher and location fixer / logistics.

 

MENTORING

I have a passion to help create the next generation of wildlife specialists, natural scientists, and conservationists. Through internship programs, aspirants and enthusiasts can fulfill their passion by working with me, and my team, in Africa.

 

EXPEDITION

Each year I lead a select number of expeditions to the furtherest reaches of Africa's underwater and wild world.  These trips allow fellow explorers to bear witness to the worlds most awe inspiring wildlife.

 

WILD AFRICA

"Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will stave to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle, when the sun comes up ... you better be running."
