Steve first visited Africa in 1982 leading overland safaris the length and breadth of the continent before returning to Australia and co-founding African Wildlife Safaris with his wife Sara. Over the last 35 years, Steve has returned to the continent more than 70 times, building an impressive resume and unrivalled knowledge of the African bush. Whilst Steve loves all things African, two of his favourite activities are walking through the African bush and canoeing the Zambezi – both featured in this unique itinerary.
