I have been leading African Safaris since my first safari to South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe (then Southern Rhodesia) in 1978.  From that date, I was hooked!  Every safari is incredible and each safari is unique.  After over two dozen safaris to ten different African countries, I can truthfully state that each safari has been a new experiences for me and a trip of a lifetime for my clients.


Africa is very special, but there are many other ecotourism destinations that certainly should be on every travelers list of destinations - Australia, Belize, Costa Rica, Peru, and the Galapagos Islands are just a few.


Experienced advice is always free of charge - just call or send an e-mail

Since my days as Director of the Sacramento Zoo I have been using EWT to organize my safaris.  Explorers World Travel, Inc (EWT) was incorporated by the husband/wife team, and my friends, Jim Heck and Kathleen Morgan. EWT practices "fair trading" policies where approximately two-thirds of the dollars paid for tourist services actually reach the individual companies in Africa.  For instance, in Tanzania we use Next Safaris, owned and operated by a local Tanzanian, Tumaini Meishaa. 
Other African destinations include Kenya, Rawanda, Uganda, Zambia, Botswana, South Africa, Namibia and a few others.
