Favourite destination and animal: My favourite travel destination is Zambia and my favourite animal is the Wild Dog.
What is your first travel-related memory? Family holidays in Cornwall - the long drive down from Yorkshire followed by a week of family fun!
What is your most memorable wildlife encounter? Tracking lions on a walking safari in the North Luangwa, we had been following the track for four hours and were about to head back to camp for lunch when we found the pride of eight lions. When they realised we were there, the big male stood up and stared at us letting out a massive roar, the sound went right through me - it was an amazing feeling.
If you could do just one NWS safari, which one would it be and why? Zakouma National Park in Chad, I love to explore the remote wilderness.

If you were going on a round-the-world trip and could invite anyone from history, living or dead, who would they be and why? My nephew and niece. it would be so amazing to share an epic adventure with them.

Aside from travelling, how do you maintain your connection to the natural world? Walking, I am never happier than when I am wandering through some part of the natural world, be it Yorkshire or Zambia, I only feel like I know a place once I have explored it on foot.
