Tom and Nikki live on the base of Mount Kenya with their two young children, Madeline and Archer, who they are dedicated to raising with the same passion for nature they enjoy.

Having grown up and worked in Africa in the safari industry their whole lives, Nikki in South Africa and Tom in Kenya and Botswana, they have nurtured a great understanding and intimate knowledge of Africa, and her wilderness and wildlife.

The family of four are completely at ease in the wild. Tom is happiest walking in the bush, identifying wild flowers and grasses, and wherever possible, with a fishing rod in hand, and with the family following his footsteps close behind him.


A passion for wildlife and commitment to conservation is at the heart of every Big Wild Safari…

We live with the big wild on our doorstep – the tallest, largest and fastest creatures on Earth, the most wildlife rich and plentiful places, and immense, wide open wilderness. These are the greatest riches in the world, and the greatest joy to experience. It’s our privilege to share all this with you on safari, and it’s our mandate to protect the big wild that’s left.

Together with you – our guests – with every safari, we directly support the wildernesses you visit and the conservation efforts and community projects in those areas. Your conservation fees ensure the preservation and management of the unique ecosystems you experience and explore, which not only protects critically endangered and iconic wildlife species, but also directly improves the lives of communities in the area.

More than this, we are lucky enough to be surrounded by and to personally know some of the most pioneering conservation  initiatives in Africa. We’ve connected many guests and projects over the years, facilitating donations and fundraising, which have made immense impact. From the running of orphaned elephant sanctuaries, offsetting carbon footprints with reforestation projects, the development of anti-poaching technology, equipment for rangers, research grants and more.
