Richard Trillo/Africa, writing, PR

 

I am the Kenya Programme Manager for Expert Africa – an award-winning UK-based tour operator specialising in tailor-made trips to East and Southern Africa. We only offer trips to countries we know really well and then only to areas and accommodation where we ourselves have stayed.


From 1985 I founded the Africa Desk at STA Travel  in London, which I managed for three years. From 1990 to 2006 I was Director of Communications at the travel guides publisher Rough Guides. Between 2006 and 2012 I was a freelance writer, editor and PR Consultant and I still find a little time for freelance work.


As well as having a career in tourism, publishing and PR, I have more than thirty years of travel experience in Africa. I’m the author of the Rough Guides to Kenya and West Africa and co-author of the Rough Guide to First-Time Africa.
