YOUR IN COUNTRY HOST

Host

The Vista Trails holiday experience includes Your In Country Host Hugh Chapman. He is an excellent host with a terrific sense of humour. Originally from the UK he has had a varied career spanning agriculture and tourism, particularly anything connected with outdoor life. For 10 years he lived and worked in Kenya organizing wilderness camping and introducing visitors to not only the game parks and wildlife but to the very essence of Africa. He is well known for his support of conservation and rural sustainable development and has left behind many lifelong friends in Africa.

Hugh has had connections with Montenegro and the Balkan countries for over 10 years and now lives and works in a beautiful setting beside the Adriatic. As a keen walker and great host he can make your trip into far more than just a walking holiday. His contacts and friends in ME mean that you will get behind the brochure and have a truly memorable experience.
