SIMON ESPLEY is a seasoned African traveller – walking, driving, boating, biking, horse riding and flying his way in pursuit of true wilderness and elusive birds. In his spare time he rehabilitates birds for release back into the wild, tries to live sustainably and is increasingly interested in the true cost and journey of food. He is a chartered accountant and CEO of Africa Geographic Holdings and bigFIG Digital Media. Simon has ventured into a wide range of conservation areas and his latest trip took him to Zambia’s Liuwa Plain National Park. Here he learned about the essential role played by the communities living in this wilderness in safeguarding Liuwa’s future, for the animals and themselves. You can read about it in LIVING WILD IN LIUWA.
