*Featured in Condé Nast Traveler as a Top Travel Specialist*
Born in Johannesburg, I grew up in South Africa before moving to Germany with my parents. As a young child, I toured southern Africa with my family – always on the road, heading off to some remote place or into the bush. I do remember going to school occasionally, but my fondest memories were of driving through desert landscapes or watching the wildlife.
Once I finished my Tourism degree, my husband and I toured Europe and the United States. After exploring the world, we moved back to South Africa, where I stayed loyal to the tourism industry! I began my career working at a hotel. I moved to an Africa tour operator (travel agent) from there, and have been doing so for most of my career. From there, I moved to Go2Africa, and have been here for the last seven years!
Sundowner of Choice
Any G&T hits the spot as a sundowner, and a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon goes great with dinner.
Most Memorable Sighting
Seeing a baby gorilla fall to it's feet after playing in a tree during a gorilla trek. Or being stuck in the middle of a herd of buffalo in an open Jeep!
At night, leopards drink from the plunge pool at the furthest room from the main areas at Ol Donyo Lodge in Kenya.
Loves to Hear
I love hearing clients compliment the staff and guides - a good guide is so important!
