According to reports, Garth and his family moved to Australia in the year 2006, and not long after, he began to study Cinematography. Once Garth had graduated from his field of studies, he made his way back to South Africa.

Briefly.co.za learned from goodthingsguy.com that upon Garth’s arrival in South Africa, he began to work on BBC shows such as, “How To Grow A Planet” and “Natures Miracle Orphans.”

Garth’s love for rhino conservation started while he was filming for "Care for Wild Africa," which is the world’s biggest orphan rhino sanctuary. The series reportedly has seven episodes.

While Garth was busy filming the conservation film, a wild rhino suddenly began to approach him. As soon as the rhino stopped by him, Garth began to rub his stomach. According to Garth, it was lifetime opportunity that he will never forget.

It is not very common for a wild rhino to approach a human just for belly rubs. However, Garth stated that a person should never approach a wild rhino as it may end badly.
