Over the years, Chris has studied locally and internationally, focusing on Theology, Public Speaking and Stage Drama. His studies and previous vocations allowed him the opportunity to visit many parts of the world and Chris just fell in love with travelling. He rates East Africa as a top destination.
Today, Chris is pursuing two of his greatest passions: travel and helping others. Alongside creating unforgettable trips and safaris to Africa for his guests, Chris has also set up a charity that helps those battling with mental illness.
