How did you get involved in travel?
"Born and bred in Cape Town, South Arica, I've always been drawn to experiencing nature at its' fullest - from Seaside to Winelands, from Cultural to Adventure. I'm always looking for the next best experience to share in! My parents are from Zimbabwe and New Zealand so the love for travel is deep rooted in me. My family have run a Travel and Events company for over 30 years, so it's second nature to follow suit, in a more modern way, bringing people to experience the charm of Africa, that I am so lucky to call home! "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Traveling across Botswana on a three weeks self drive trip for my 30th with a bunch of friends was truly exceptional to say the least. From salt pans to flowing river crossings, from river island bird hides to baobab tree houses, from warthog potjie dinners to vegan river boat breakfasts, from lion cubs playing at sunrise, to hyenas feeding at sunset, the only common thread was a consistent blissful Botswana smile on everyone's dial - what a treat!"

My trip to Zimbabwe!
The trip over all was great! I was able to complete every activity mentioned in my itinerary and my favorite moments during this trip was the Devils Pool Swim and the 2 day camping Safari in Chobe National Park. We spotted well over 150 elephants and a whole pride of lions in their natural habitats! Truly an experience I will never forget.
There were however, some hiccups in that every activity I attended (helicopter flip, devils pool swim, boma dinner) asked me for a... read more
