Blog:

For more than 15 years I’ve travelled to over 100 national parks in Southern, East and Central Africa, from Odzala-Kokoua National Park in Republic of Congo to Agulhas National Park at the very southern tip of Africa. I’ve taken a few photos along the way, and interviewed some of the dedicated people who live and work in these areas. These are the blogs I’ve written about my experiences.
