Chris has been with Africa Travel for over 25 years, and no one knows Africa better.
His time with Africa Travel has seen him travel the continent, visiting over 25 African countries and enjoying such diverse and memorable experiences as gorilla tracking in Rwanda, canoeing along the Zambezi, quad biking in Namibia, and viewing lemurs in Madagascar. Off-the-beaten-track adventures have also seen Chris enjoying the magnificent beaches of Sierra Leone, snorkelling with turtles in the Comoros, and exploring the abandoned plantation houses of Sao Tome.
Particularly favoured memories are of exploring Lalibela’s magnificent churches in Ethiopia, of soaring along the Mozambican coast by helicopter, and of ascending Cape Town’s Table Mountain for the very first time.
