Jack spent most of his twenties travelling six of the seven continents (one day he’ll get to Antarctica), but it's Africa that has always had a special draw for Jack. Since his first journey there he has been captivated by the wildlife, the cultures and the generosity of spirit that he has come across.
Before joining Audley, Jack cycled through twenty countries from Kenya to South Africa, partly to publicize a new type of bamboo bike, which only made it as far as Zanzibar, where it was happily replaced with a second-hand steel bicycle.
Building on previous experience as a travel consultant, Jack came to Audley and now specializes in East and Southern Africa. Jack has returned to Africa on several Audley research trips to self-drive through the stark landscapes of Namibia, fly by light aircraft between the flourishing parks and private concessions of Botswana, get soaked by the roaring Victoria Falls several times over, drive a safari vehicle among the great migration herds in Tanzania, be protected by a Masai warrior during a hippo fight in Kenya, and go gorilla and chimpanzee trekking in Uganda and Rwanda.

I'll never forget when…
Driving through the Okavango Delta floodplains, water pouring into my foot-well in the 4x4, following a pack of wild dogs on a successful hunt is still a vivid memory. After witnessing the wild dogs we all had our evening ‘sundowner drinks’ in a wide clearing by a water hole, after which we were ready to swap and share our experiences.
