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 recently 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.
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. A more recent highlight was driving in the Serengeti in our open safari vehicle, when we were unexpectedly surrounded by literally thousands of wildebeest.
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.
