Who is Jonathan Scott?

Jonathan Scott is an English zoologist, wildlife photographer and television presenter specializing in African wildlife. He was brought up on a farm in Berkshire, England and educated at Christ's Hospital School and Queens University, Belfast. Jonathan and his wife Angela, who is also an award winning wildlife photographer, have a permanent base at Governor's Camp in the Maasai Mara National Game Reserve in southwest Kenya. They live in the suburb of Langata close to Nairobi National Park. Much of their work focuses on big cats, though they also enjoy spending time with the Maasai herdsmen and their families who live in the area surrounding the Maasai Mara.

Jonathan travelled overland from London to Johannesburg in 1974 and has lived in Africa ever since. Jonathan was resident naturalist at Mara River Camp from 1977–81 and then at Kichwa Tembo Camp from 1981-92. He co-authored The Marsh Lions with journalist Brian Jackman and followed this with The Leopard's Tale which he authored alone. He sold limited editions of his pen and ink wildlife drawings to support himself in those early days.
