I am originally from the UK but after graduating from university at 21, I packed my rucksack and left family and friends behind to have an adventure of my own in South Africa. I couldn’t resist the charm of this beautiful country and have called Cape Town my home ever since. Having been born and raised on the other side of the world, I’m constantly amazed by the people, landscapes and wildlife of South Africa – it’s truly captured my heart.
As a child, I was lucky enough to travel with my family to several European countries as well as the United States. Travel at a young age inspired me to explore further and as a teenager I travelled to Madagascar, South Africa and Nepal. From there, I was hooked.
Previous jobs have taken me to weird and wonderful places, including Thailand, Costa Rica, China and Kazakhstan! Although each offered a unique experience, nothing compared to the feeling you get when traveling through Africa. As a result, I’ve decided to share my love and passion for Africa to those hoping to visit this unique continent. I’m here to help plan unforgettable, tailor-made holidays for people from all walks of life in search of that unique African experience.
Where I have travelled
Cape Town, the Cape Peninsula and Cape Winelands, are on my doorstep so I have explored these areas considerably. I have road-tripped along the Whale Coast, Garden Route and Panorama Route with family and friends and have spent time on safari in the Limpopo province, on private game reserves and in Kruger National Park. Most recently, I travelled to Sun City, Madikwe Private Game Reserve, Pilanesberg National Park and the Waterberg region – an incredible experience!
My favourite travel moment
So hard to choose! Moments that spring to mind include: scuba diving in the Indian Ocean while holidaying in the Seychelles; traversing the Okavango Delta on a traditional mokoro (canoe); white-water rafting down the Zambezi River after witnessing the ‘Smoke that Thunders’ (Victoria Falls); stargazing in Spitzkoppe and visiting the infamous sand dunes at Sossusvlei in Namibia; and seeing wild dogs for the first time in Madikwe.
What I love about Africa
Africa is a continent of diversity. Whether you’re looking for mountains, savannahs, beaches or forests, you’ll find it in Africa. It is a breathtakingly beautiful continent, where you can experience different cultures, view precious wildlife, taste amazing food and have an adventure of a lifetime!
My best African travel advice
Leave technology behind and experience the raw beauty of this incredible continent. Never forget your time here and always plan to return – you won’t regret it.
Where I'd love to go next
I would love to visit Malawi one day. I’ve heard it’s the warm heart of Africa and would love to explore the waters of Lake Malawi. Having never been to East Africa, I would also really love to go to Kenya or Tanzania, especially during the Wildebeest Migration.
