More about me

I am passionate about wildlife and people

As a Travel Specialist working with &Beyond for 26 years, I have travelled extensively throughout Africa, and have a great passion for its wildlife and its people. I am here to ensure that my guests have a fantastic experience and peace of mind, knowing that they will be taken care of every step of the way.

Countries visited

I have travelled extensively to Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Pemba, Mozambique, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana.

A few things I love travelling with

My camera, binoculars, Autan mozzie repellent, Lip Balm for those cold winter mornings on the open vehicles and Mnemba Island kikoi and sunglasses.

Favourite destinations

Tanzania and &Beyond Mnemba Island which were my home for 11 years as I managed Lake Manyara Tree Lodge, Ngorongoro Crater, Grumeti and Mnemba Island twice. The Great Migration in Tanzania, the people who are warm and welcoming, their rich culture that has remained strong and the vast open plains of the mighty Serengeti. Another highlight is &Beyond Mnemba Island which is the ultimate in barefoot paradise The whitest coral sand, the warmth of the azure sea, the peacefulness, the absolute privacy, the constant spoiling, the whale sharks, the nesting turtles and the Adder’s duikers, which I helped to introduce. Mozambique is very beautiful with the gentle seas, wonderful people who take care of you and the food. Not to mention the range of exciting activities such as Pansy Island, Paradise Island, picnics, snorkelling and diving. Uganda is a bucket list experience for the gorillas, the excitement, the adrenalin of the climb and the overwhelming privilege of being able to sit quietly in their presence and observe.
