Wanting to share his deep appreciation for the bush and seeking an opportunity to give back, Jeff found himself at the center of the ambitious Gorongosa National Park restoration project in central Mozambique. For four years, Jeff was immersed in various conservation projects including lion enhancement, community and tourism development, guide training, anti-poaching initiatives, and the production of films and other media endeavors about the project.

Praise from Nat Hab travelers:
"Jeff has a very engaging personality which made this an amazing trip experience. Not only did he seem to be able to identify all birds and other animals, he provided us with the animal's characteristics and living environments. Most importantly, Jeff allowed us enough time to view and learn animal behavior. His spotting abilities were excellent. He was always there for us, and we will not forget him."
"Jeff has an amazing store of knowledge, great passion and a wonderful personality. Seeing and learning about the little things like the dung beetle as well as the big animals made the trip more exciting and rewarding. An unexpected bonus was Jeff's photography tips!"
"Jeff was great at predicting animal behavior so that we could get our cameras ready for catching action shots. He was very organized and kept the group on a general schedule while allowing plenty of time to observe and photograph wildlife, and giving time for unexpected animal behavior happenings. He performed beyond my (very high) expectations!"
"Jeff's knowledge about the wildlife we observed as well as the geography of the areas we visited was incredible! This was matched (or even surpassed) by his enthusiasm—he is clearly passionate about his work, about the conservation of wildlife and the environment, and about Africa. He was, most often, as excited as we were when observing the behavior of the animals. He obviously loves sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm with his clients."
"Jeff was incredibly professional and very careful of our safety. He was also an extremely warm, caring and engaging person that shared our excitement in the many animals and cultural sites we experienced. His enthusiasm for everything we did was genuine. I recently described the experience to friends that it was like being inside a great nature documentary with the option of asking any question to quench our curiosity."
"Jeff has spent quite a bit of time in Africa and it showed through his energy, enthusiasm when spotting animals, focus on safety for both us and the animals, and his ability to efficiently predict animal behavior and point out excellent photos opportunities. He made my husband’s dream trip to Africa a very memorable experience. A smile forms on our face just thinking about all the wonders of the circle of life we witnessed
"Jeff was great! There weren't any questions he couldn't answer, and he had a great sense of humor and fun. I particularly liked how he worked to make the trip better, with a drive through the crater rather than around the rim and little things like paying close attention to how people liked to receive their tea in the mornings."
