Our guide Sam Puls is a wildlife biologist from Belgium. Sam has spent enough time here to realise the beautiful nature Slovakia has to offer. Most of his holidays are spent out in nature, hiking in some of the most beautiful places around Europe (and further). Sam’s main interests are large mammals, but also has a decent knowledge about birds and other taxa. Quite often you will see his eyes wondering off focussing on the ground looking for animal tracks.
