Jaime Sharp

 Born in New Zealand, to a South African father and New Zealand mother, International travel and adventure is in my blood. From the moment I could walk, it has been about adventure, Nature and finding my own way through life.

Paddling since I was 11, an avid white water kayaker, turned Pro Sea Kayak and Wilderness Travel Guide I have worked and paddled in amazing places, like Panama, Belize, Norway, Canada, New Zealand, Fiji, Croatia etc,. I have also worked in the arctic of Canada as a Dogsled Guide and Wolf Naturalist, where I got to experience my Polar bears, Musk ox, Wolves and many other Story book creatures of my youth.  I have worked for many years in the tropics of Central America, canoeing Jungle Rivers, and camping out in the temperate rainforest of the Pacific northwest of Canada. “I relish living from a tent in the wilderness and the wild animals that are found there!”

Jaime’s experience as a Semi Pro Photographer, with a great eye for composition, coupled with his passion for making short movies of his adventures, guarantees some visual delights from the trips highlights.

Now Based out of British Columbia Canada, where the wild nature of the Pacific North West has captured his wild soul,
this trip to NZ is a returning home journey (after 7 years of being gone) full of its own challenges and unique opportunity's of re-discovering his home land.

I strive to see the less traveled places of the world and to discover my personal teachings while hopefully inspiring others to follow their dreams!
