Member of the SafariBookings Expert Panel

Alan has been travel writing for 12 years, working for Lonely Planet and other travel publishers. He has written and contributed to many guidebooks on southern Africa - the African region he first visited, and it still weaves its magic on him. Alan remembers vividly his first forays into national parks in southern Africa, and his astonishment from observing the behaviour of randy dwarf mongoose through to skittish buffalo and grunting hippos at sunset. And it was in Zambia - lion tracking in Kafue, and being swamped with elephants in the Lower Zambezi, in particular - where he became aware of just how wild Africa can be. Alan (co)authored the Lonely Planet guides for Southern Africa and Zambia & Malawi. He considers it a privilege to be able to watch the interaction of African wildlife in their natural habitat and hopes to be cruising the parks in southern Africa for many more years.
