Inspired from a young age by the great adventurers, Dickie was determined to explore and experience Africa for himself. After schooling in Shropshire and graduating from university, he packed his bags and headed to the Caprivi region in northern Namibia to train as a guide.
Apprenticing with a mobile safari company operating throughout Namibia and latterly Botswana, he completed further guide qualifications which resulted in him moving to Tanzania in order to guide and manage a lodge in one of the countries remotest national parks, Katavi. He's also one of the first Englishmen to kayak the world's longest lake unsupported, Lake Tanganyika.
Returning to the UK several years later he worked in property, until his love of African adventure couldn't be ignored and he joined Audley. Dickie now looks forward to sharing his passion for Tanzania with you.
I'll never forget when…
After a spectacular day game-driving in the eastern Serengeti, we returned dusty and tired to the brilliant Namiri Plains Camp. With G&T in hand I was showed to my tent to ready myself for dinner. The outdoor bucket shower was filled with steaming water and while showering, the final red colours from the setting sun where painted across the sky and in the distance was a huge electrical storm. The combination of the two being witnessed from my shower, made this a memory I will never forget.
