Francis was born and raised in a small village in the Okavango Delta. As a young boy, he spent time fishing from a mokoro (a traditional dug-out canoe) and camping on islands around open fires. Every night his father would tell him stories about the birds and wildlife, which kept him fascinated for hours.
He finished school and went on to complete his national service, working as a teacher in Dekar Primary School in Gantsi, where he formed a Wildlife Club in the village and organized trips for school children to visit National Parks in Botswana. His aim was to educate both young and old about wildlife and the environment.
Francis transitioned into a career in tourism, and obtained his Professional Guide license in 1996. He spent four years guiding at Mombo Camp, and is now a certified walking guide. His special interests are birding, tracking and stargazing.
