About Me

I was born in Botswana and have lived in Missouri, Franschhoek and Hout Bay. Maun in Botswana is currently my home.

Over the years I have managed to travel to the USA, Israel, Dubai, UK, Australia, New Zealand, St Helena Island, Thailand, Mauritius, Hong Kong, Comoros and the Seychelles. In Africa, I have spent time in South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Namibia.

Travel would be high on my lists of likes (however, now being a mum I have done a lot less of late). My hobbies include photography, metal detecting, snorkelling and horse riding. I also really enjoy being out in nature, gardening and reading.

Where I have travelled

Locally, I've travelled throughout the Western, Northern and Eastern Cape provinces in South Africa, traversed South Africa from the northern borders with Botswana down to Cape Town, and been to the Drakensberg and kwaZulu-Natal coast. In 2016 I spent an enjoyable week visiting camps and lodges in the Sabie Sands and Thornybush reserves around the Kruger National Park.

My favourite travel moment

Meeting a lone Maasai man walking across the Serengeti in the middle of nowhere!

What I love about Africa

The freedom we still have here. There are places in Botswana that still truly feel wild to me.

My best African travel advice

Ask the locals, they often know best!

I love nothing more than throwing in a bed role and tent and heading down the road to see what is around the next corner!

Read what our Travellers have to say

Wow, wow, wow! What a great trip. Everything - all connections, travel etc - went very smoothly and congratulations to you and your team for this. Nothing was really a surprise to me as I had been to Africa and Vic Falls before but not to Botswana. I was very impressed with the country.The lodges were great, particularly the last one: Linyanti. What a wonderful spot.

It all went smoothly and in general the lodges were fantastic and we had great safari rides. The best holiday ever!

If we could, we would do it again!
