Audley Travel Tailor-made journeys for the discerning traveller

Chris, South Africa Specialist

Chris first visited Africa in 2008, spending two weeks travelling within Zambia on a family holiday. This kindled his passion for the continent, in particular the African bush. That same year he returned this, time to South Africa in order to study for and gain a South African field guide qualification. This led to a three month stint working on a private concession in the Kruger National Park, contributing to the anti-poaching efforts and concession management. He then went back to Zambia, spending time working in lodges in the South Luangwa National Park before returning to the UK to study at Edinburgh University. During his studies he continued to travel when possible, returning to South Africa to visit Cape Town and the surrounding area. He has since spent more time travelling throughout South Africa, a country that just keeps drawing him back.

Chris's Most Memorable Experience

As a keen 'birder' Southern Africa has always been a special place to visit. One particular memory that will always stand out was when I was working on a private concession in Kruger National Park. It was the time of year when impala tend to give birth and everyday more impala calves appeared. While watching a breeding herd we noticed a Martial Eagle sitting high up on a nearby rocky outcrop watching the baby impala below. Minutes later the eagle swooped down, killing one of the baby impala in front of us. A truly memorable sighting and one I will never forget.
