Now over 10 years working with African Latitude, Sammy has been guiding clients extensively throughout Kenya.
Born in France in 1957, Michel studied hotel management in France but soon escaped on sailing boats to the other side of the world. Until 1985 he was a skipper on charter boats in the Mediterranean Sea and the West Indies before discovering Africa.
Since then he has operated safaris in Sudan, Namibia and Zaire. He is creator and director of African Latitude and has designed some of the most daring adventure tours the company has ever offered. His knowledge of East Africa, its fauna, flora and all aspects of the local culture make travelling with Michel an enjoyable experience.
