Having spent much of my childhood overseas in Egypt, Oman and Bahrain, my first trip to sub-Saharan Africa in 1998 was a real baptism to its wildlife. I joined a game capture team, netting antelope for relocation to other reserves, before spending time assisting with concession, lodge management and guiding in the Sabi Sands.
I later went on to become a professionally qualified field guide and lodge manager, guiding guests on game drives and walking safaris in some of the most wildlife rich areas in Africa. I have since driven independently from the UK to South Africa and back again, visiting 30 African countries, over a period of 18 months and circumnavigating the continent.
I feel privileged to have gained the experience I have of Africa and I love to share my passion for this continent with others who want to explore it.
I also run a small charity in Malawi and truly value travel to Africa that is considerate of and benefits the local communities and the conservation of its incredible wildlife.
REVIEWS OF HOLIDAYS I'VE CREATED
Marc was recommended to us by friends who had booked their honeymoon through him. He is very knowledgeable, informative and passionate about Africa. We found him excellent to deal with by telephone, email and face to face. We can’t wait till we go on our African adventure next year.
Mike & Anita, Kenya Safari
I’ve spent many months living in a tent on top of a Land Rover and managed luxury lodges, so am happy to offer advice on any style of trip from a luxury safari to an adventurous self-drive. I lived, got married and run a charity in Malawi, so know the destination especially well, but have travelled southern and East Africa extensively.
