Guidance in cause related goals for both donors and beneficiaries
Having grown up in Africa, and as director of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund UK wherein for ten years I’d been taking potential donors to meet mountain gorillas in the wild, becoming a safari guide seemed a natural progression. In September 2009, I took my first private clients – a doctor from Toronto and his two sons – to meet their hairy mountain cousins in Bwindi Impenetrable forest and Virunga. Thereafter I launched my own company, Gorillaland Safaris.
Bespoke safaris beyond your imagination. Visit gorillas where they live, on foot in the wild. Trek the afro-montane forests of the Albertine Rift Valley. Bushwhack remote eco-systems in the Congo Basin. Boat up river through the jungles of Gabon. Hunt with the Ba’aka pygmies in Dzanga Shanga. Join our next expedition to Gorillaland, where it all began and still goes on.
In September 2018, on behalf of Red Savannah I guided a group of Tony Robbins’s Platinum Lions to meet mountain gorillas in Rwanda. It was one of the best out of 50 or so treks that I’ve done in the past 20 years. Here are some photos from that safari.
