Alex first visited Africa at the young age of 16 on a volunteering trip to Namibia, where he spent time renovating a school before touring the country by road. Despite falling in love with the African scenery and wildlife, Alex decided to go to university before undertaking any more travels and he graduated in 2010 with a degree in journalism. After university he combined work and travel with a job at sea on board luxury cruise liners, travelling to the USA, Caribbean and Europe over two years.
On his return, Alex decided the travel industry was the perfect career for him and joining Audley has meant being able to return to Namibia as well as travel extensively in Botswana and South Africa. In these countries he has experienced the wilderness of the Okavango Delta, the thundering sounds of Victoria Falls and the rugged scenery of Namibia.
Alex’s most memorable experience was flying over the Okavango Delta for the first time, travelling to a safari camp. He was blown away by the sheer size of the delta, and as he looked closer, he could see herds of elephant, giraffe and zebra grazing on the plains. It was the perfect introduction to Botswana.
