Tristan’s burning passion for conservation, and his love of nature and the wilderness led him to peruse a career in Southern Africa as a walking big game trails guide. He lived deep in the African bush for over 6 months training and finally qualifying as a registered walking safari guide. He then spent the next four years living and working all over Southern Africa leading clients on foot deep into the African wilderness for up to 5 days at a time.
Tristan joined the TV show ‘Made in Chelsea’ in the hopes of building his profile. Whilst on the show he has hosted his own photography exhibitions and spoken out about the importance of conservation. He has built up a strong online community of followers based on his passions for nature, travel and health and fitness. He is now an ambassador and works very closely with some of the world’s leading conservation charities, including TUSK and The Born Free Foundation of which he is the ambassador for challenges. He has used his love of fitness to raise money for these charities by undertaking extreme challenges including cycling the length of the UK on a static bike in one sitting during lockdown.
