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 I still love it as much as I did when I started way back in 1994. I returned to Namibia in 2013 and take every opportunity I get to explore this country of contrasts.
Where I have Travelled
I’ve visited Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar with a few of my colleagues, which was a ‘dream-come-true’ trip! We managed to fit in so many experiences: from flying in a hot-air balloon over the Masai Mara, to a game drive in the Serengeti where our vehicle was surrounded by thousands of wildebeest… and then snorkelling off Mnemba Island in Zanzibar.
More recently I visited Uganda and Rwanda to trek mountain gorillas; nothing beats staring into the eyes of a silverback!
I’ve also journeyed all over Southern Africa, including Mozambique.
My favourite travel moment
I’ve had the privilege of experiencing so much that Africa has to offer - a Migration safari, hot-air ballooning over the Masai Mara, following a pack of wild dog in Botswana - so it is hard to pick a favourite moment or destination. But I have to say the red sand dunes of my home country Namibia will always be close to my heart.
What I love about Africa
You can't beat Africa for its amazing mix of mountains, oceans, deserts and game reserves - it really is the perfect holiday destination.
