Upon returning to Australia Michael realised that exploring different countries’ cultures and customs had such a profound impact on him that he simply had to work in the travel industry. Fast forward 12 years and Michael is one of our most senior specialists here at African Wildlife Safaris & Natural Focus.
During this time Michael has returned again and again to experience Africa and has also explored both Canada & Alaska extensively. From walking and canoe safaris in Zambia, a sleep out on the rocks listening to the raw sounds of the bush in Tanzania, to a polar plunge in Alaska, Michael has encountered enthralling experiences to last a life time. Walking on the glaciers in Alaska and exploring the deep blue colours of the crevasses was another awe-inspiring experience.
In 2019 Michael visited Rwanda and trekked the dramatic jungle wilderness to witness the mountain gorillas. For him, the one hour he spent with the primates was a life changing experience.
