About me

I am an African Safari Travel Expert, and certified South African Specialist. I grew up in South Africa, in a family that instilled a deep love of wildlife and travel in me. I’ve explored incredible places throughout Southern and East Africa, and experienced a range of overland tours, camping safaris and luxury lodges. I truly believe that Southern and East Africa are the perfect holiday destinations, offering wildlife experiences unmatched on any other continent, incredible scenery, warm and welcoming people, cultures rich in art, dance and music and world-class wine and food.

Having travelled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and North America, I have great tips and insights to help design unforgettable holidays. I take the time to curate every itinerary as if it were for myself, to ensure that my clients experience great moments and make everlasting memories. I aim to provide great service, prompt communication and honest advice.
