Previously having worked at the Zoological Society of London, Natural History Museum and Science Museum Group I travelled to Africa to follow my dream of becoming a safari guide. During my studies I blogged daily about my experience. I specialised as a trails guide and subsequently qualified as a FGASA accredited Lead Trails Guide. Fascinating Africa is a way of keeping my African dream alive that little bit longer.
