When I was planning a safari for my Dad and me, we came to Chris with some lofty travel goals. He tailor-made our dream safari in Southern Africa and we loved every second of it! Everything was taken care of in such a professional manner that we didn’t have to worry about anything and that allowed us to be completely absorbed in the moment.
We were so impressed with Chris’s hard work and attitude and we can’t wait to see what he plans next!
I had Chris organize my trip to Zimbabwe and South Africa in 2018. The entire trip was seamless: from the moment I landed in Johannesburg, every detail had been taken care of for me. All my hosts and guides knew Chris and treated me like friends and family, vs just another guest. I didn't have to think about food or transportation at all - it all flowed from airplane to transfer to elephant express train to safari jeeps between camps. What was really great about my trip was how I was able to customize my experiences once I got there. While I could have gone on safari every day (and I did most days), I also got to go on hikes, meet locals, and go kayaking above Victoria Falls. Some of my favorite highlights include sitting around a campfire with my guides hearing about their hometowns (listening to elephants in the distance), horseback riding and high fiving the local children walking home from school, and falling asleep in my comfortable cabin to the sound of a lion roaring in the distance and a hippo responding its call! At my favorite camp, we ate dinner in front of a pond where the elephants came to drink each night -- and got up the next morning and saw elephants, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes and baby hippos -- all before lunch.
I haven't had my 2nd trip to Africa yet and when I do I'll be booking with Moraway.
I had the pleasure of co-leading a donor safari with Chris in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park in 2019. As a group leader, he demonstrated qualities that genuinely impressed me, including a flair for tackling complex logistics, rich knowledge of Africa and its myriad cultures, a deep commitment to wildlife conservation and community development, and a gift for sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience with guests. In addition to his extensive network of connections across the African continent and commitment to creating individual experiences and itineraries, Chris embodies the professionalism and genuine passion for his craft that every top-notch adventure travel guide and trip planner should possess.
Wherever you decide to roam, you’ll be in good hands with Moraway!

Chris's knowledge of curating adventure and luxury safaris in Africa is impressive. His time spent on the ground means that he applies his in-depth experience to crafting the right trip for you. Chris is an upstanding human and this translates visibly in his business model as he supports in-country NGOs and well-vetted community tourism groups. His heart is in the right place and that, combined with his years of expertise, will make your safari truly unique.
I've worked with several Africa specialists over the years on various trips to Africa and Chris is at the top of my list for professionalism, knowledge and creativity. He has traveled extensively throughout the continent and has incredible firsthand knowledge of the destination - parks, camps and the all-important logistics. His passion for Africa and for conservation and community-based tourism is genuine and contagious!
I can't wait to plan my next trip with him and Moraway!
When my parents asked me about a trip to Botswana I sent them to Chris. I knew they would be in capable hands as Chris's knowledge of the African continent is unparalleled. Over the years he's made connections with a multitude of camp owners, managers, and guides and knows the strengths of traveling to each safari destination in Africa. He also knows the nuances between the different parks and reserves in different countries and where to stay to get the best wildlife viewing. Chris is an excellent listener, and I knew that he could craft a safari for my parents that would not only meet their expectations but would include extra surprises that make for a memorable trip.
There is nobody else I would trust with my parents lifetime trip to Africa.
Reach out and talk with someone who has been there.
and make your dream a reality!
