More about me

The travel bug bit early and I have never stopped exploring

I am privileged to be working for one of the world’s leading responsible luxury adventure companies – &Beyond (formerly CC Africa). My association with &Beyond goes back to 2000, and in my travels, I have visited almost every lodge and camp operated by the company, as well as many others. The travel bug bit after I left school and, together with my husband and family, I have travelled the world. I understand the needs of the international traveller and am committed to crafting tailormade safaris that provide my guests with unforgettable travel memories.

Countries visited

I have travelled extensively in Africa to Botswana, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania, Zambia, Zanzibar, Zimbabwe and my own country South Africa.

I have also been fortunate to have travelled to many other places around the world including the USA, UK and Europe, Australia, India, Israel and Thailand

A few things I love travelling with

A few things I cannot do without when travelling: bug spray, Cannon camera, lip balm and a good novel and of course my family and an adventurous spirit.

Favourite destinations

South Luangwa in the dry season offers phenomenal game viewing and nature at its best. Other highlights are the Namib Dessert where nothing can beat the beauty of the dunes and the spectacular landscape. The Masai Mara, at any time of the year, I love the wide-open spaces and massive herds of wildlife found here.
