I am a travel writer, naturalist, photographer and tour leader specialising exclusively in the little-known and enigmatic Indian Ocean island of Madagascar. Born and based in the UK, I visit Madagascar at least once every year to explore and photograph its diverse wonders, carry out research and to share my knowledge and interest through leading tours.
I have written a number of books on Madagascar and its wildlife, but my passion for this country stems from more than just an interest in flora and fauna; it is rooted in the realisation long ago that Madagascar – the world's only truly Afro-Asian nation – is as deeply fascinating culturally, linguistically, historically and geologically as it is for its famously unique and endemic wildlife.
On this page you can discover more about my various involvements with Madagascar, find details of my upcoming
tour, learn more about my books and where to buy them, and get information about my photography.
You will also find information on my extensive archive of Madagascar-related books and documents and my role as Secretary
of the Anglo-Malagasy Society. At the bottom of the page is a link to contact me.
Below are detailed my Madagascar tours, both past and future. If you are interested in booking to go on one of my upcoming tours, click the 'Full details & booking' link to open the website of the relevant tour operator that is handling bookings for that trip. Please note that prices may vary widely from tour to tour, owing to significant differences in accommodation level, itinerary, trip duration, transport arrangements, whether international flights are included, and so on. For tour operators or trip organisers wishing to secure my services to lead or accompany a tour of/including Madagascar, please contact me as far in advance as possible.
