The 30-year-old royal was all hands on deck as he had an encounter with a lion during in his three-month expedition and even helped Save The Rhino Trust repair broken tires.

Simson Uri-Khob the CEO of the charity which helps endangered animals, told PEOPLE magazine: "The lion was sedated and he just jumped right in and helped.

"He is like an African man. He likes to be out there, sleeping under the stars knowing that he is close to dangerous animals.

"He helped with everything, from fixing a tire to cooking the food to packing up.

"He even helped to take a punctured tire off the vehicle and attach a new one. He jumped into everything we did."

Simson also praised the prince for being and "amazing person", just acting like everyone else in their team and for not expecting any kind of "special treatment".

He added: "If you didn't know who he was, you would have just thought he was an African boy moving around with us. He is very ordinary. Sometimes you have people who can be like, 'Don't say this to me because I am very important.' But not him. Harry was just like, 'Come on, let's go!'

"There was no special treatment at all. He wanted to be just like everyone else in the team. He is an amazing person."

Harry is expected to return to the UK on on September 15, his 31st birthday.
