More about me

Remote and wild open spaces have become my ‘happy place’

I have worked and travelled extensively throughout Africa and with this knowledge you can trust in my understanding of what’s involved in creating a smooth and unforgettable journey for you. I have always been passionate about African wildlife, and our pristine, remote and wild open spaces, which have ultimately become my ‘happy place’. It is a pleasure to get to share this passion daily through speaking to our guests and planning incredible adventures for them. Being a part of a company like &Beyond, which understands that conservation and sustainable tourism goes hand in hand with the success of our industry, makes doing what I do every day even more rewarding.

Countries visited

I have travelled extensively in South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Kenya, Mozambique, Botswana, Namibia and Mauritius.

A few things I love travelling with

My camera, mosquito repellent, sunblock, a buff and a good travel companion.

Favourite destinations

Africa as a destination is wildly diverse, with each region offering something completely unique and thrilling to experience. From the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town, Big 5 in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, vast deserts in Namibia, intricate water channels of the Okavango Delta, to mountain gorillas, the Great Migration, endless plains, giant craters, great lakes and tropical islands surrounded by kaleidoscopic reefs; nature rules in Africa and the adventures you enjoy here will reawaken the soul in one way or another.
