Co-Founder and Managing Director
Phil is relatively new to the adventure travel sector, having fallen in love with Uganda during a wildlife safari and gorilla trekking trip, as a tourist in 2021. Being guided by Peter on that dream vacation convinced Phil that he needed to help create and share more opportunities for such inspiring trips of a lifetime for other like-minded adventurers.
Phil is an ex-British Army officer and is currently a security director for a global medical and security assistance organisation, based in Dubai. With a passion for travel and adventure, in his spare time Phil likes to visit new and exciting locations, climb mountains and run long distances.
