Chris joined the Ker & Downey team in 1996, but his travel experience extends far beyond that with positions pioneering African safaris from the UK and opening up travel to remote areas of Africa. His extensive travel career enhances his in-depth knowledge of Africa, Egypt, the Middle East, India, much of Asia, the South Pacific, the Indian Ocean, Antarctica, South America, Canada and other areas of the globe. On both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, Chris has spent his lifetime creating memorable and exotic travel adventures for groups – some as large as 600 – and individuals, which include high-profile clients. Most recently, Chris has published a children’s travel book, The Adventures of Dezmund & Dippity.
