Since then, during time off from work, he has worked as a guide at two safari camps in the Okavango Delta. Furthermore, since 2011, he has also worked on freelance basis as a field and bird guide for a UK-based company in countries including Uganda, South Africa, Zambia, Honduras, Guatemala and Brazil.
