These extraordinary first-hand experiences allow me to create the ultimate bucket-list adventures and itineraries for guests wanting to visit these incredible places.

A few things I love travelling with

My cell phone, with a variety of amazing apps for references; a wide brimmed hat, oversized sunglasses to hide early morning eyes, a selfie stick for the mandatory #safariselfie and my husband.

Favourite destinations

&Beyond Mnemba Island, off the coast of Zanzibar, is my ultimate travel destination. It is an exclusive, barefoot paradise that happens to hold a very special place in my heart. This is where I got engaged, and returned for the most perfect honeymoon. There is nothing on earth quite like it.

Other highlights are &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve, in South Africa, for its melting pot of natural diversity. One can be swimming with whale sharks in the morning, and watching a cheetah hunt in the afternoon. It is also at the forefront of sustainable conservation models, as well as anti-poaching efforts.

The Okavango Delta, a World Heritage Site and one of the seven natural wonders of Africa, is a tranquil oasis where one can truly lose yourself. Vast expanses of untamed African wilderness give way to shimmering channels of life-giving water. Whether by boat, mekoro (dugout canoe), vehicle, or on foot, you can immerse yourself on safari from a bygone era.
