Growing up in a tent with two safari guide parents in Kenya meant that I caught the bug for Africa early and never looked back. After finishing university I immediately headed back to Africa and spent three years working as guide all across East Africa. Where I spent my time on riding safaris in the Maasai Mara, quad biking in the desert and riding a motorbike from South Africa to Kenya.

Travel nuggets

  • On safari, a good pair of binoculars can make a huge difference and might mean spotting that last big cat on your list!

  • A good bag and two different sizes lenses for your camera is always worth it for all keen photographers.

  • Lip balm and sun cream are a must!

  • When gorilla trekking, make sure to remember a pair of waterproof shoes and a light-weight water tight jacket.

My hot picks

Offbeat Riding Safaris, Maasai Mara, Kenya

Swimming my horse across the Mara river alongside migrating wildebeest - the best kind of adventure.

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge, Virungas and northern Rwanda, Rwanda

Standing up close and personal to giant silverbacks in the Volcanoes National Park Rwanda, incredible.

Singita Sasakwa Lodge, Greater Serengeti, Northern Tanzania

Unbelievable views and luxury only matched by the food!

Sosian Lodge, Laikipia, Kenya

Jumping from waterfalls and riding alongside giraffe on a private ranch, almost unbeatable.
