Info: Africa’s Warm Heart


Just before the end of my adventure across the United States in 2014, seemingly impressed by my intrepid spirit and wordsmithing, I received an email from a man I had briefly met a few years earlier. He requested I help him complete a couple of expeditions and wondered if I would be interested to help get some projects started in some remote and relatively unexplored regions of Southern Africa.

Apparently, I’m now useful.


Time to let you all know what in the world I’ve been up to on the African continent. Malawi to be precise.

The beard was only trimmed (it was hot!).
Watch this space for the new blogs on Malawi. It really was a productive time.



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.
