Blog Posts & Recent Travels

I recently visited Namibia with a few of my colleagues, and it was so fantastic to be back home! Read all about our trip in this blog post: "Our Recent Travels in Namibia: a Desert Adventure" and see all our amazing photos in this Google+ album.

About Me

A small-town upbringing in northern Namibia was never going to be enough for me and after completing my education in South Africa, I started my career in travel and - 17 years later - still love it as much as I did when I started.

I am a mother of two and often whisk my family off for holidays in South Africa (it's hard to beat the Eastern Cape for family vacations) as well as Mozambique and Namibia. I think of myself (smile) as a dream-maker and my intuition for what travellers want - destination-wise as well as experiences - translates into what I hope are more-than-you-expected holidays.

Where have I travelled

All over Southern Africa, Mozambique and Kenya as well as Victoria Falls, Austria, Germany, Italy and London.

My favourite travel moment

Sipping a gin and tonic on the banks of the Zambezi! One of my other most memorable safari experiences was flying in a hot-air balloon over the Masai Mara.

What I love about Africa

You can't beat South Africa with its amazing mix of mountains, oceans, deserts and game reserves - it really is the perfect holiday destination.

Africa Safari Expert

People will always have a yearning for Africa, the huge spaces, the wildlife, its pristine environments - it affirms that life is not always about materialism. And there's nothing I like more than when my customers share the same sentiments.

Read what our Travellers have to say

Well, we’re back home in the States and we truly miss South Africa and the surrounding countries. I remember when I sent my first email to Go2Africa and you responded promptly and asked all the right questions so that you could plan my trip of a lifetime. After numerous emails (ok, so I’m a bit of a control freak!) you planned out our two week stay in Zimbabwe and South Africa. You arranged all of our travel – flights, ground transfers and accommodations and they all went off without a hitch. I know you told me not to worry and you were right! The Safari Club was outstanding and I would highly recommend it to anyone. As tourists from another country, it was also reassuring and impressive that you gave us emergency contact numbers and you could be reached at all times. I proved that by calling you during our last day there and as always, you were helpful. You’re an asset to Go2Africa and I have passed on your name to some people who are thinking about visiting Africa. I hope you enjoyed our travel blogs and video, as you could see, we had an incredible adventure. We have not stopped talking about it since we got home.
