A Bit About Me

Setting up NWS 11 years ago, I am founder or MD of NWS - whichever you prefer! Traditionally I loved being involved in sales, but nowadays I have moved into more of an overarching role, keeping an eye on a bit of everything and taking the lead on new frontier products that set us apart from the rest. My expertise lends itself to working with journalists, getting our name out into the public domain and exporting new destinations that hopefully push the boundaries in more than one way.

Recent trips include Siberian tigers, Gorillas in Congo, and Zakouma National Park in Chad. Edgy but good; reminding us what travel is really about.

Q & A With Will

Where was your last trip?

Kamchatka. You can read about it in my trip diary here.

Where is your next trip?

Antarctica in November

What is your first travel-related memory?

Family holidays to Cornwall - awesome!

Aisle or window seat?

Window seat even though I hate heights! I like to be able to "see where we are going".

What are you most likely to splurge on while travelling?

Business Class.

What’s your favourite thing about working at NWS?

It's the variety of what is on offer. No matter what role you are in, you can often tweak that role to take in areas that you are interested in or wish to learn more about.

What do you like doing outside of NWS?

Spending time with my three boys, running, and thinking about what we should be doing next at NWS!

If you could do just one NWS safari, which one would it be?

Impossible question. If I narrow it down then it would be (in no particular order), Congo, Botswana, Madagascar, Svalbard...

Is there a standout destination in your mind?

Congo... or Madagascar!

What is your best travel souvenir?

Images. Whether they be mental images or photographs, travel is about creating memories. Follow me on Instagram @willbolsover to see some of my recent travel images.
