More about me

I am privileged to have lived and worked in some beautiful and remote wilderness areas

As a Travel Specialist for the luxury and responsible travel company, &Beyond, I have been privileged to have lived and worked in some stunningly beautiful and remote wilderness areas such as the Serengeti in Tanzania and the Okavango Delta in Botswana. I now use the knowledge and experience I have gained over 16 years to create extraordinary, seamless and often life changing safaris for my guests.

Countries visited

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

A few things I love travelling with

I love travelling with my camera, a good friend I call my husband, a great book, sunscreen and a kikoi.

Favourite destinations

East Africa for the incredible wildebeest migration and concentration of wildlife. Botswana for one of the most pristine habitats in nature. Namibia for some of the most awe-inspiring scenery and night skies.
