My travel journey began at an early age travelling with my family across our beautiful country of South Africa as well as neighbouring countries. I have unforgettable memories of travel experiences that left an indelible impression on me and I realised at this stage that my love for travel would eventually determine my career path.
After studying tourism, I worked at a few different companies before I was fortunate enough to become part of the &Beyond family. The company core values, ‘Care of the Land, Care of the People and Care of the Wildlife’, encapsulated my basic philosophies, and I immediately felt like I had found the company that could help me realise my dreams of being a part of creating unforgettable travel experiences in the most remote and beautiful areas in which we operate.
Within Africa: South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania and Namibia
Outside Africa: Thailand, India, China, Australia, Belgium, Seychelles, Mauritius and Maldives
A few things I love travelling with
Sun screen, family, sun hat, walking shoes and my bird book.
It is extremely difficult to highlight one specific destination that stood out above the rest, but if I had to choose an event that stood out for me it was when I was able to visit &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve with my children and witnessed a 230 kg (507 lb) leatherback turtle returning to the sea after laying its eggs.
Another unforgettable experience was at &Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve when we saw three leopard, a herd of elephant, 25 wild dog, hyena and vulture in one sighting, and as our expert guide so aptly said, it was “a smorgasbord of wildlife viewing”. This breath-taking experience will stay with myself and my family forever.
