Will's expertise and experience has seen him act as a fixer for individual clients and notable partners, taking a hands-on approach to leading on the ground. His extensive guiding experience has taken him to a wide array of African nations, including Morocco, Madagascar, Ghana, Sao Tome, the Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic Will was also involved in establishing the first ever gorilla safaris in Gabon, working alongside conservation titan Emmanuel de Merode, the current Director of Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Will founded World Primate Safaris in 2005 – the first and only company in the world to specialise in primate safaris – before creating specialist brands World Big Cat Safaris and World Bear Safaris in the following years. In 2013, these entities were combined under the all-encompassing Natural World Safaris. Since then, Will has taken great strides to promote conscientious travel and support both local conservation projects and some of the world's leading conservation charities, including WildAid and the aforementioned African Parks Network.
Throughout his journey in travel – from living with a local Bantu family in the Cameroon bush during university, to hosting acclaimed fine-art photographer David Yarrow and a Netflix production team in South Georgia – Will has been driven to share his passion for the world’s wildlife, destinations and cultures with his fellow travellers. We hope that this well-deserved recognition from Condé Nast Traveler helps to put even more people in the right place at the right time for immersive experiences in the natural world.
