Dave Harvey

Biography

I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1951.
I spent my early years in Linbro Park, a suburb of Johannesburg, on a small holding of peach trees, asparagus and rhubarb, exploring the long disused next-door cemetery, avoiding snakes and grandpa’s beady eyes. (And they were eyes that missed nothing).
From there the family relocated to a farm in Chingola, Northern Rhodesia (later Zambia).
Given the farm was carved out of virgin forest, it was back to avoiding snakes and other denizens of the thick bush – but all good learning curves.
From Zambia the family relocated to Rhodesia (later Zimbabwe) and from there I attended university in South Africa.
Somehow it seemed that all of my school years were spent at isolated boarding schools, buried deep in the bush in both Northern Rhodesia and Rhodesia, which may account for a lot of my quirks.
After the bush war, when Rhodesia became Zimbabwe, I emigrated back to South Africa where I now live in Cape Town.
