About Me

I've lived in Cape Town, London, Wisconsin and Vermont but always return to Africa! Cape Town is definitely always home for me and so settling back in has been easy after so much travelling. I love photography, fine dining, working with enthusiastic and friendly people, travelling as much as possible and trying to explore a new place every year. Getting out of Cape Town for a weekend is always an adventure and a great way to unwind after a busy week in the city.

My passion for travel began with postcards being sent to me from all corners of the world from my father who was in the Merchant Navy. I was introduced to new places on a monthly basis and my own travel began when I left school and started exploring Africa and the world.

Where have I travelled

In South Africa - the Garden Route, Kruger National Park, Eastern Cape, KwaZulu Natal. In the rest of Africa - Mozambique, Namibia, Botswana, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar and Egypt.

Internationally - USA, Canada, England, Ireland, France, Holland, Madeira, Norway, Italy, Vatican City, Germany, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand.

My favourite travel moment

Soaring above the Masai Mara in a hot air balloon and my hour with the mountain gorillas in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

What I love about Africa

Its diversity and friendly people!

My African travel advice

Always take wet wipes with you on safari, plus a smile, and consider each African experience, whether it is a flat tire or an impromptu musical karaoke night with the locals as an adventure to remember.

Where I'd love to go next

The remote camps of the Okavango Delta or perhaps a beach break on one of the Indian Ocean Islands (Mauritius or Seychelles)

Africa Safari Expert

As a photographer I often get stuck behind the lens. Take time out to just experience Africa, its sounds, smells, sights and its magic. You will be back before you know it.

Read what our Travellers have to say

She was very professional, knowledgeable, conscientious, and personable. She was a good listener and reader.  She read and translated my emails and desires into a great trip. She also had a good sense of humor. We had a great trip. Both Brad and I will think very fondly of Rwanda; the Gorillas and the people. Speaking of Brad, he did mention to  me that he was "very impressed" with Go2Africa. Between you and I, he is not a man of many words and can be difficult to please sometimes? Hence, those are high words of praise from him.  I want to reiterate what a pleasure it was to work with you on this itinerary. 

Brad and I have done a lot of "weird travelling" (i.e. not the typical Mexico all inclusive holiday that Canadians tend to favor) and the biggest challenge is often communicating with our travel specialist/agent.  I cannot stress how important it is from my perspective that you READ all my comments and incorporated that information back into the itinerary.  That takes a lot skill (and patience) and is greatly appreciated from your clientele.  I had the same experience when I travelled to South African and Botswana last year and Catherine Fouche was the travel professional designing the trip. Go2Africa will continue to be my preferred company for African adventures. Thank you for arranging a great Rwandan experience.
