BBC’s immensely popular ’90s show Big Cat Diary — in Kenya’s Maasai Mara As the internationally renowned wildlife photographer and filmmaker sat in his open jeep’s 4×4 roof Kike jumped atop the vehicle strained her hind legs and let it flow The video went viral and has 495078 hits on YouTube In his recently-released autobiography The Big Cat Man Scott fondly reminisces similar (mis)adventures in Maasai Mara which is now his home over the last two decades His tryst with the African wilderness came in 1971 In his early 20s Scott decided to travel overland from London to Johannesburg compelled by a newspaper advertisement asking for people to participate in the journey by a truck for 475 His travels took him across a wide slice of the continent — across the Sahara through west Africa Zaire (now Congo) and through east Africa down to South Africa His childhood is the earliest testimony to his love for the outdoors His parents were “city people” from London “My father was an architect to the Duke of Westminster But his dream was to live in the countryside He bought a 30×40-acre smallholding near Cookham Berkshire where he wanted to retire But he died when I was two years old” he says After his father’s death his mother sold off their home in central London and moved to the farm From that young an age Scott’s immediate environment involved pigs chickens rabbits foxes horses dogs even frogspawn — a microcosm of the animal life that fired Scott’s imagination His father’s death played a part too “Because my dad died when I was young I always saw there’s a ceiling to the amount of time we have on earth” he says Not that he didn’t have to suffer the plagues of practicality After getting his zoology degree from Queen’s University Scott had neither a job or an income He decided to take up wildlife art and photography to fund his way through his African dream and landed up in the Okavango Delta Botswana There he stayed with naturalist Tim Liversedge on a houseboat This was when his pen and ink drawings of wildlife began to gain visibility for the first time How though does he relate his sketching skills to the drama — often shockingly contrived as he writes in his book — of television Especially since Scott has close to two decades of TV work behind him “High octane shows are popular with presenters putting themselves in situations that not only risk injury to the participants but may to the animal they are filming All these might make for dramatic footage but it is irresponsible and gives TV and wildlife a bad name” he says Scott’s work has also seen him share a close relationship with the Maasai people — a community whose role in the entire narrative of wildlife conservation in Africa has been crucial “The Maasais saw cattle as given to them by God Their relationship with wildlife was different They lived alongside it not away from it” he says Scott loves India too A bit predictably he says he’s taken in by all the colours And he is all too aware of the man-animal conflict especially with the cat that’s close to his heart: the leopard Maybe take a lesson or two from the Maasai he says “Initially the Maasai’s reaction to lions attacking their cattle would be to poison or spear them” he says But soon they realised that they could improve their boundaries by fencing them better or using brighter lights Such relatively less confrontational ways can ensure that we live alongside wildlife not without it The depth of Scott’s work can often make one forget the question: how conscious has he felt of his identity as the White man in Africa “I’ve been aware of how Europeans have been part of the problem in a big way Having consumed their own natural heritage the West cannot lecture the rest about protecting their environment” he says Scott has also been privy to the less breathtaking aspects of Africa — AIDS the Hutu massacre and apartheid Is he a bit of an escapist choosing to not look at the uglier things around him “I’m a romantic at heart I have lived a life which is a bit like escaping from ugly realities not because I like people less but because I like the mystery of wild animals more” he says For

rabbits foxes horses dogs even frogspawn — a microcosm of the animal life that fired Scott’s imagination His father’s death played a part too “Because my dad died when I was young I always saw there’s a ceiling to the amount of time we have on earth” he says Not that he didn’t have to suffer the plagues of practicality After getting his zoology degree from Queen’s University Scott had neither a job or an income He decided to take up wildlife art and photography to fund his way through his African dream and landed up in the Okavango Delta Botswana There he stayed with naturalist Tim Liversedge on a houseboat This was when his pen and ink drawings of wildlife began to gain visibility for the first time How though does he relate his sketching skills to the drama — often shockingly contrived as he writes in his book — of television Especially since Scott has close to two decades of TV work behind him “High octane shows are popular with presenters putting themselves in situations that not only risk injury to the participants but may to the animal they are filming All these might make for dramatic footage but it is irresponsible and gives TV and wildlife a bad name” he says Scott’s work has also seen him share a close relationship with the Maasai people — a community whose role in the entire narrative of wildlife conservation in Africa has been crucial “The Maasais saw cattle as given to them by God Their relationship with wildlife was different They lived alongside it not away from it” he says Scott loves India too A bit predictably he says he’s taken in by all the colours And he is all too aware of the man-animal conflict especially with the cat that’s close to his heart: the leopard Maybe take a lesson or two from the Maasai he says “Initially the Maasai’s reaction to lions attacking their cattle would be to poison or spear them” he says But soon they realised that they could improve their boundaries by fencing them better or using brighter lights Such relatively less confrontational ways can ensure that we live alongside wildlife not without it The depth of Scott’s work can often make one forget the question: how conscious has he felt of his identity as the White man in Africa “I’ve been aware of how Europeans have been part of the problem in a big way Having consumed their own natural heritage the West cannot lecture the rest about protecting their environment” he says Scott has also been privy to the less breathtaking aspects of Africa — AIDS the Hutu massacre and apartheid Is he a bit of an escapist choosing to not look at the uglier things around him “I’m a romantic at heart I have lived a life which is a bit like escaping from ugly realities not because I like people less but because I like the mystery of wild animals more” he says For
