‘For intrepid travelers there is no request too challenging for Will Jones.’

Lucia Van Der Post for Quintessentially

‘The great thing about Will Jones, who is the spirit and founder of Journeys By Design, is that he has walked almost every inch of the corner of Africa that he specialises in. He has lived in Africa for 25 years, running camps in the most remote and wild spots known to man. There is not a camp or a lodge in his portfolio that he doesn’t know intimately.’
