It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our great friend and longest serving ecotour guide, Dr. Manfred Dangel. Anyone lucky enough to have joined him on a safari will understand this enormous loss. His legacy video is now available to purchase. We miss you Manfred – Rest In Peace.
In Memoriam – September 1, 1947-April 12,2015
Norman Caldwell moved to South Florida in 1959 where he developed a love and passion for nature and the Everglades. He transformed this passion from hobby to career, driving airboats and guiding archeological digs, moonlit canoe and school field trips. He loved to fish, was an avid reader, studied the history of Florida and its inhabitants, and was a wealth of information and lore. He was constantly amazed by the Everglades, its beauty and mystery. He spent his last fourteen years as an Everglades Day Safari eco-tour guide and truly loved his work and the land. With his well woven tales of the Everglades, Norman elevated guiding to an art form. We miss you Norman.
