What is your most treasured possession? Possession may not be the right word, but my wife and son.

Where would you like to live? I like to travel and live in different places as long as it’s a place that makes your heart sing most days – where the coast meets the bush is always attractive.

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party? My wife, David Attenborough, Beverley and Derek Joubet (award winning film makers from Botswana), Arsenal football manager Arsene Wenger, John Cleese, Led Zeppelins’ Jimmy Page and British ventriloquist Nina Conti.

If you could go back in time, where would you go? To the early 1900s, on some of the African adventures of the great explorers (with inoculations, paracetamol, coffee and a corkscrew!)

What is your favourite animal? All really, but what I have worked with most; rhino, giraffe, cheetah, leopard, chimpanzee, gorilla……and chickens.

What is your favourite food? BBQ-ed anything (within reason!)
