The BBC describes Simon as “British television’s most adventurous traveller”, and after 15 years spent making more than 80 programmes Simon has become a familiar face on TV, well known for his extraordinary foreign journeys. Most of Simon’s documentaries combine travel and adventure with global environmental, wildlife, and conservation issues, and have taken him across jungles, deserts, mountains and oceans, and to some of the most beautiful, dangerous and remote regions of the world. Simon’s dodged bullets on frontlines, hunted with the Bushmen of the Kalahari, dived with manta rays, seals and sharks, survived malaria, walked through minefields, tracked lions on foot, been taught to fish by the President of Moldova, adopted by former headhunters, and detained for spying by the KGB.

In early autumn 2018 he began a near sell-out UK theatre tour, speaking to tens of thousands across the country. The tour has been extended twice due to popular demand. His autobiography Step by Step was also published in autumn 2018 and became an instant bestseller.
