Travel Specialist

More about me

My mantra is ‘Never stop exploring and never stop discovering’

Africa is my passion and I love sharing this with other people. As a Travel Specialist for many years, I create adventures throughout East and Southern Africa helping guests live out their travel dreams. Over the years, I have had the opportunity of working and travelling to most of our lodges and camps as well as some of our partner properties. Together, with our wonderful teams on the ground and partners, we ensure that our guests are well taken care of, from the moment they arrive in Africa to the moment they leave. Creating extraordinary guest experiences is my ultimate goal.

Countries visited

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

A few things I love travelling with

I love travelling with my camera, notebook, &Beyond Thule luggage, all-purpose safari scarf, and a sense of adventure.

Favourite destinations

Northern Kenya for its remoteness and rugged landscapes, some of which are similar to the Karoo in South Africa; the local Somali culture, the opportunity to view species not found anywhere else and adventure activities like walking and riding. Another highlight is the Serengeti, famed for endless rolling plains and acacia trees, sitting in the middle of the Great Migration as it spreads out over the plains, just listening to the sounds. The Okavango Delta is also very special for its peacefulness, beauty, magical sunsets, remarkable birdlife and good game throughout the year.
