Remind me to tell you the story about my Kenyan safari where I jumped with the local Masaai people as they hummed and danced around me in celebration of my birthday. Or the time I gently stroked a rhino during the de-horning process. Remind me to tell you about the pod of playful dolphins swimming above me whilst diving at &Beyond Mnemba Island or the time I trekked to a gorilla family in Rwanda. I can also tell you a story about the most romantic private beach picnic followed by a beautiful champagne stop on top of a small sand dune at &Beyond Benguerra Island. And another of us hiking the steep sand dunes of &Beyond Sossusvlei Private Desert Reserve in Namibia.
With over 17 years of experience at &Beyond, it comes as no surprise that I have many wonderful stories to share. However, my passion is to assist you in creating your own long-lasting memories. It is the incredible personalised travel experiences and unique stories they create that you take back home to share your loved ones that keep me motivated.
Within Africa I have travelled to South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania and Kenya.
A few things I love travelling with
Sun hat, sunglasses, camera and my journal to document the amazing places I see and beautiful people I meet along the way.
I often get asked this and after a giggle I can honestly say I just can’t pick. Having been to &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve more than 10 times, it still is a sacred place that rejuvenates my soul. I feel awakened after returning, and I love sharing these special moments with my family. For a romantic destination my favourites are Botswana, Namibia, and &Beyond Benguerra and Mnemba Island.
My most humbling, once-in-a-lifetime travel experience was trekking to a gorilla family in Rwanda as well as joining a tour of the genocide museum. That experience truly changed me forever!
