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, most of my time is spent between Malawi and Europe.
Go Untamed Safaris was striding into top gear, but volatile poitics in 2019, Covid in 2020, the impacts of Russia vs the World as well as insesent corruption forced my hand.
The dust is now settling. Everything has changed. New chapters are about to be written.
