After graduating as an ecologist from Leeds University I got my first job in Africa, and little did I know the impact this would have on my life. As the permanent ecologist for Raleigh International in Zimbabwe, I set up numerous conservation projects, managed hundreds of volunteers, tracked black rhino, and learnt how to survive in the bush.
I quickly fell in love with the continent, and over the years Africa has frequently provided restoration for my soul. This was also where I became an avid amateur photographer on all things Africa.
I have spent many happy years working across Africa, as a leader and guide, for a game capture unit in South Africa, and set up conservation and community projects in Swaziland. I now represent the Kingdom of Swaziland in the UK, as well as giving expert advice to travelers to southern Africa.
This experience and passion for Africa – its people, cultures, landscape, and wildlife – led me to create my own business, Sense Africa. I now help people to have their own African Adventure and to sense it for themselves.
