Chris McIntyre (expertafrica.com) went to Africa in 1987, after reading Physics at Queen’s College, Oxford. He taught with VSO in Zimbabwe for almost three years and travelled extensively, before writing his first guidebook (Bradt’s guide to Namibia and Botswana) in 1990. He has since written all Bradt’s guides to Namibia and Botswana – and co-authors (with his wife, Susie) Bradt’s guides to Zanzibar and Zambia, and (with Philip Briggs) Bradt’s guides to Tanzania. Alongside keeping these guidebooks up to date, Chris is managing director of Expert Africa. This specialist tour operator organises high-quality trips for individual travellers throughout Africa, including safaris and the Wild about Africa trip programme, which is led by top professional guides. A Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, McIntyre now lives in Surrey with his wife Susie and two children.
