    About Me

    I honestly believe everyone should visit Africa at least once in their life, whether it is to immerse yourself in the great plains of the Serengeti, float above the Masai Mara in a hot air balloon, wander the cobble stone streets of Stonetown, Zanzibar, go in search of the Big 5 in the famous Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, visit the beautiful and cosmopolitan city of Cape Town, walk along the banks of the South Luangwa River, canoe down the Lower Zambezi or simply soak up the sun in paradise, Mauritius …… the list is endless.  Africa is not only about the wildlife and breathtaking landscapes, you will fall in love with the people.

    Whilst  specialising in Africa and retreats in the Indian Ocean, I can also offer tailor made holidays around the world for you and the family, whether it is an European river cruise, a visit to the Grand Canyon, Christmas in New York, exploring the Lost City of Machu Picchu, a cruise around the world or beach holiday on the islands of Hawaii, I can help you make your dream holiday a reality without the stress.
