Nicole Buchanan

I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and lived there for 15 years before making the move down to Cape Town - where I've been ever since!

I have travelled a fair bit with my family over the years. My mom worked for a Portuguese airline, so we travelled internationally and within South Africa. I've had the ‘travel bug’ ever since - it's what led me to study Tourism and Events at Stellenbosch University, and have been working as a consultant and travel expert since 2011.

Sundowner of Choice

Bombay Sapphire Gin and Pink Tonic served with some lemon, a sprig of rosemary, a slice of cucumber and a few blueberries.

Most Memorable Sighting

A memorable one was watching a pride of lionesses take down a zebra in South Africa's Kapama Private Game Reserve.

Expert Tip

On game drives, the back row is normally the bumpiest - so try to get the front seats!

Loves to Hear

My clients always thank me for my attention to detail and delivering excellent service, as well as always being available to address their concerns and being prompt with replies.
