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.

He has spent most of this time out in the Australian wilderness, working on remote properties and undertaking extended invasive species surveys in these isolated areas.
