About me

I'm the Kenya Programme Manager at Expert Africa (, a UK tour operator specialising in tailor-made trips to East and southern Africa. For many years I was Director of Communications at Rough Guides, and I'm the author of Rough Guides to Kenya and West Africa and co-author of Rough Guides’ First-Time Africa. I have an MA in anthropology and African linguistics from the School of Oriental and African Studies, London University, but my first passion was wildlife – I had a real childhood ambition to be a zoologist but it was thwarted by total impatience with chemistry. I live in remote suburbia with my wife and our now rather transient offspring. You can follow me on twitter @richardtrillo, or have a look at my website
