Blog Posts & Recent Travels

I recently discovered the magical Okavango Delta in northern Botswana - it truly was the trip of a lifetime! Here's a photo of my colleagues and I at Chief's Camp in the Delta.

About Me

I am a born and bred South African and grew up on a farm two hours outside Cape Town. I attended school in Cape Town and now live full time in the city. I have lived abroad in both the US and the UK and have travelled extensively around Southern Africa as well as internationally.

Travel is something that's in my blood and I just love it! I grew up in a family of adventurers and we travelled often, so the travel bug bit early on and I have continued to visit new and exciting places. As much as I love travelling, I love the fact that I can play such a big role in making sure my clients have unforgettable holidays with lasting memories.

Where have I travelled

I have travelled all around South Africa including the Garden Route, Kruger, Madikwe and KwaZulu Natal to name but a few. In Southern Africa I have travelled to Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Victoria Falls, Mozambique and Malawi.

My international travels include the east coast of the USA, the UK, Europe, Argentina, Bali, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia.

My favourite travel moment

I have been fortunate to experience so many special and unique travel moments but I would have to say one of my most memorable moments was flying over the Okavango Delta in a helicopter. It was spectacular to view this iconic travel region from above and see hippo playing in the water down below. Very special and a memory that will stay with me for a long time to come!

What I love about Africa

I love Africa because it has so much diversity, such a large continent but yet so easy to get from one iconic region to the next. One minute you can be enjoying a game drive in the famous Kruger National Park and the following day you are standing on Table Mountain admiring the city of Cape Town! I keep returning to Cape Town after my travels abroad and maintain that I live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Some African travel advice

When travelling to Africa there is so much to consider and so many hotels and lodges to choose from, that's why my advice to you is, trust an expert to compile the perfect holiday for you! I have been working in the travel industry for nine years and have travelled to and experienced the properties and regions that we sell.

Where I'd love to go next

There's still so much of Africa to see! My next trip will most certainly include a visit to East Africa and perhaps a few nights on the idyllic islands of the Seychelles...pure bliss!

Internationally, next on my list would have to be somewhere in the Far East - Thailand or Vietnam are top of my list - or maybe even a villa in Tuscany!

Read what our Travellers have to say

As you rightly wrote, we did have a vacation of a lifetime. You helped me prove a theory that I have. It is better to book an adventure vacation with a company like your rather with a local Israeli travel agent. Your hotels, transportation systems, itinerary timelines, were smooth and efficient. I booked with you confident in the knowledge that, if had experienced a glitch, you would have been there to sort it out – as you did for us last time. Many thanks. We will be coming back, probably in company with friends to have them share with us, and you, the wonders of Africa.
