He has developed an extensive knowledge of the Southern African locations and weather conditions, a resource keenly enjoyed by, not only his local, but his international clients, naturally.

Having become quite a seasoned traveler and explorer, his portfolio now includes wonderful essays on various trips throughout the world.
