Born and raised in South Africa, my passion for travel started at an early age, as my family traveled throughout Southern Africa at every opportunity. I soon learned that it's really not only about the destinations that you reach; it's the whole journey and what you get to experience along the way. I love good food, good company, campfires and a wide open sky. And these are the things that Africa is all about.

"We arrange safaris in East Africa, gorilla excursions in Rwanda and Uganda, and Mount Kilimanjaro climbs. We operate ethical Kilimanjaro climbs and are are proud Partners for Responsible Travel with Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project.

How did you get involved in travel?
"When I finished school, the choice to turn my love for travel into my career was a natural one. So, I studied travel and tourism, and have been helping people plan their tailor-made African safaris and holidays for the past 18 / 19 years.
I still love every second of selling our beautiful continent and fulfilling someone’s dream to travel.
I have traveled extensively within South Africa, as well as all over Southern and East Africa. Some of the most notable places I’ve visited include Namibia, Malawi, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda. Internationally, I’ve also traveled through Europe, Thailand and various parts of the USA."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"There has been so many unique experiences from swimming in Devil's Pool over the Victoria falls, hot air ballooning in the Maasai Mara, mokoro trips in the Okavango delta, seeing a river crossing in the Serengeti etc, but i think my biggest highlight was seeing the Gorillas in Rwanda. Since i can remember it has been my dream to see them in the wild and i was lucky enough to do this a few years ago. I think this is something i will never forget. "

Recent trip reviews for Adele
Tanzania Safari · Tanzania - Oct 10 - Oct 26, 2019
First I want to thank Adele in South Africa ( she works at Duma Explorer that provided the safari services) who helped me plan every step of the way in this safari. She was excellent and her first draft of an itinerary was very close to the final version. Since this was a solo photographic safari, I was concerned that my specific needs might be difficult to accommodate. It did not take long to realize that Adele was on target and did a great job is meeting my needs.
