I was born and raised in Denmark. During my teenage years I was fortunate enough to travel to various counties in Europe and, after completing high school, I lived and worked in Paris and London. I then travelled to Cape Town where I met my husband, a born-and-bred Capetonian, and fell in love both with him and Cape Town!
I have lived in Cape Town for over 20 years and love South Africa. It is a wonderful place to bring up our boys. We have everything on our doorstep - beautiful beaches, stunning mountain ranges, wildlife, different cultures and more.
I enjoy assisting people with their travel arrangements and just love it when my travellers express the same fondness for this amazing continent as I have.
Where have I travelled
I have travelled extensively all over South Africa as well as Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique, Victoria Falls, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mauritius.
My favourite travel moment
Watching the sun set in South Luangwa National Park, a drink in hand, while elephants were crossing the river and hippos were grunting in the background. It was a huge family herd of elephants with lots of babies and they were just taking their time, playing in the water while crossing – it was very beautiful and an iconic African experience!
What I love about Africa
Everything - the stunning scenery, the sounds, the smells, the people and cultures - it really gets under your skin and I have yet to meet somebody who has visited Africa who doesn't want to return.
My best African travel advice
Africa works on African time so when travelling be patient and just enjoy the journey!
Where I'd love to go next
There are so many places still to be explored but I am very keen to return to Botswana to take in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and the Makgadikgadi for a different safari experience!
