People might not know though that in a similar way to fruit and […]

Why I do what I do.

Having now gone head-first into nature guiding, there’s a bit of me that cringes when I tell people what I do. As a youngster, I imagined that by now I’d live in Africa protecting lions, as a teenager I thought I’d be a researcher into marine biology and until very recently I thought I’d work […]
