About us: Charlie Bio

My two siblings and I were blessed with a truly idyllic childhood - our father was a naturalist and adventurer who hunted the length and breadth of the African Continent, and in Kenya married a general’s daughter.

As kids we followed the safari seasons all the way from the hauntingly beautiful deserts of North Kenya to the sandy banks of the Chobe River in Botswana - annual journeys of a 1,000 miles and more in open vehicles. Camping along the way with a loving and cheerful Kamba crew – trackers, skinners, cooks and drivers – who became our extended family. My father’s passion for wilderness and huge elephants and my mother’s artistic eye guided our growing love for all things natural, and instilled an appetite for adventure. People say I’ve plenty in common with both of them - I love to explore the world’s wildest places – setting camera traps for snow leopard on the Masagang Glacier, tracking tigers in Suklaphanta and canoeing up to elephant on the Zambezi River. Or just sitting quietly in deep shade photographing wildebeest as they thunder across the Mara River. These experiences are the very essence of life. And I am as passionate about the animals, as I am about the wild herbs and flowers, and remote untouched peoples. Above all I have a burning desire to share these places, the people and wildlife.

So I get to plan fantastic safaris with new found friends in far flung places, and to take my clients there too. Always I find the best organisers and local guides, and the best times of year – and we leave no stone unturned in our effort to bring creature comforts to even the wildest remotest mountain top. Every trip is different because places vary with the seasons, and besides - client needs are never quite the same.
