It is easy to sit here, back in London, as normal life begins to absorb us once again, restoring the blinkers we had so enjoyed abandoning, and begin to question has anything actually changed? Have we changed? 

I thought I’d use the final episode of the trip to assess w...

Having cycled 7000km through eight countries, one would naturally presume the closest we would have come to a fatal encounter would have been on a bicycle. Nevertheless, as we descended down a mountain path towards Bwindi Impenetrable forest with nothing but a handbrak...

In 1994, the year I was born, an event happened that would come to define Rwanda in the world’s collective memory and change the course of its history. On a smaller scale, but one particularly relevant to the subject matter of our documentary, Akagera Park went through...

We’ve made it to Kigali. The four of us collapse on the sofas of Theo’s cousins house and the pain of the last few days are forgotten. Four weeks of riding and we’ve covered 2,000km. That’s about 80k per day and we’re filled with a sense of relief that we’ve gotten her...

We’ve just come to the end of 6 days in Liuwa Plain National Park. We had two objectives. To film for Time and Tide Foundation, a short promotional film highlighting their educational community outreach programme, and to film frontline anti poaching rangers. These 6 da...

Hurtling through a forest on top of a Landrover, ducking and diving out the way of the branches overhead, battling fiercely not to get thrown off, was not how I pictured arriving at our second filming location. Yet as we have discovered with almost every part of this a...

As I sit in the back of a Land rover Defender whistling through Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, there is no better time to reminisce on what has happened over the past week. We’ve seen three countries, fought off baboons, interacted with white Rhinos and visited one...
