Before working as a mountain guide, Michael enjoyed a rewarding career as a chef. However, the call of the outdoors drowned out the sound of extractor fans and an outdoor leadership course kick started a career in mountain and outdoor guiding. A familiar face on Active Africa trips, Michael is our resident epicurean guide. He has led Active Africa expeditions to Kilimanjaro and guides our active group series trips in South Africa.
When he’s not riding a bike or climbing a mountain, Michael enjoys sailing with his daughters and experimenting with new recipes that often find their way onto an Active Africa trip.
Secret facts about Michael:
- His nickname is Michel Ramsay Attenborough…. ask him about it
- Serves homemade ice cream midway through a hike on the mountain
