What is the one conservation initiative you long to see come to fruition?
More space for animals - corridors of wild life across the world.
Apart from your own, what are your favourite lodges? (And why)
Klein's Camp in Tanzania. It is wild and open. [There is] space and simple human constructions which make up the camp. Matetsi Game Lodge, Zimbabwe [at the water lodge] - the power of the river has such eminence.
Are you heartened or saddened by the present global attitude to conservation?
The institutional conservation initiatives and management strategies have not been successful but [people are becoming more aware] individual consciousness is exploding across the world and within this consciousness lies the possibility of a sustainable future for the human species. Balance will return to our existence because millions of individuals decide that it should be so.
What is your favourite city to visit?
I don't like cities.
What three things do you never travel without?
An air ticket and a credit card that works (I only need two things).
What is the one luxury travel experience you will never forget?
The first time I saw 100,000 wildebeest on the move - pure luxury of spirit.
