Ethan Kinsey is a third generation Tanzanian, born and raised in a small village close to Arusha. His passion for nature started at an early age, playing in rivers and forests behind his home, and traveling with his parents to remote parts of Tanzania, where, while his father was visiting farmers he would explore the bush with his mother, an avid birder and plant collector. He doesn’t remember his first safari because he was too young. Their enthusiasm rubbed off on him though, and his favorite part of school was the outdoor pursuits program that allowed him onto Mt. Meru and Mt. Kilimanjaro at least twice per year, and into Maasai land and other parks. His work can be viewed on his web site, www.ethan-kinsey.com.
