Andy Woods-Ballard

Andy Woods-Ballard , GVI Director, Entrepreneur and local mentor

I have been involved in field work and travel for over 15 years and now enjoying the outdoor life with my wife and two young kids, based in Cape Town. Amongst my achievements I'm proud to include a large marine biology publications list and an insatiable thirst for South Africa's wines. As well as holding two degrees, I'm a qualified dive instructor and a Fellow of both the Royal Geographic Society and the Zoological Society of London.

Having lived all over the world, I've come to love Cape Town with its wonderful weather and great mix of culture, food, scenery, surf, beaches and great weather. Every weekend I try to do something a little different. As a naturalist, diver, walker and drinker, I've checked out a good deal of the fun stuff so far and love to share my experiences. I've also lived in Madagascar, Tanzania and Mexico and can help plan trips to the Yucatan, Southwest and Northeast Madagascar and Pemba.

My Experience

  • Director of Business Development

    Over the last 10 years I've helped GVI to become a world leader in overseas volunteering. During this time. I've been lucky enough to travel extensively and gain a real understanding of the cultures and wildlife of a number of different countries.

  • Whales!

    I've researched whales and dolphins in Scotland, Texas, Tanzania, Madagascar and Mexico. I am an author on the UK's whale watching guidelines and have contributed in other countries.
