Beard: Back in the Bushveld!

I grew the beard… then chopped back. I have also been getting stuck into and enjoying some pretty hectic lifestyle choices.

To keep a long story short, with the help of my recent African expedition partner (Bjorn) we officially set up Go Untamed ( Based in Malawi, our business offers wilderness experiences and safaris; bespoke trips for anyone interested in non-commercial adventures around Southern Africa and beyond.

I won’t tire you with updates of how the ins and outs of setting up a business in southern Africa have been – it is never dull, simple, or for the faint hearted. I am also going to avoid talking about clients. I’m not writing about my guests – most become friends after they have spent time with us in the wild or at home by Lake Malawi.

So, on their way are some rambling travel tales of adventure, culture, wildlife, and the odd personal incite….this time, around Southern Africa…


This may now be work, but I find time for a break now and then. Feel free to be social.

Where am I now?

After extensive work and tours through Southern Africa, I’m now mainly in Malawi with time each year in Europe/UK.
Go Untamed Safaris was set up, but then volatile poitics in 2019 and Covid in 2020 hit.
The dust is still settling.
