We conserve wildlife and wild lands to ensure they thrive in modern Africa


In 2016 I set myself a goal. That goal was called 'The Wildest Journey" - My mission to walk Africa's wildest rivers in the battle against wildlife crime.

A mission that in 2016/17 saw me complete a dream source to sea trek along the mighty Zambezi River, raising £2000 for wildlife conservation in the process. 

Then from January to March 2019 I managed to raise around £1000 for wildlife conservation whilst becoming one of the first people in known history to walk the 1120km length of the Gambia River in Western Africa.

During my continued expeditions I hope to raise vital funds and awareness for the ongoing issues regarding wildlife crime and the ever growing loss of wild habitats and species.

I have partnered with The African Wildlife Foundation for my future wildest journeys with a hope to raise as many vital funds to help protect Africa's wildlife and wild lands.

Myself and a small team are currently on my latest expedition. A source to sea hike along the Mangoky river in Madagascar, whilst also walking the entire width of the country from East to West.

I'm hoping that with all the hard work and commitment I can continue to raise the vital funds needed to help preserve the incredible creatures and wild spaces this beautiful continent has to offer 🙏

Many many thanks.
