We plan, book and implement tailor-made holidays for our clients that fit within their budget but still give them a true African experience and a trip of a lifetime. I love traveling and meeting interesting people, experiencing different cultures and always say “life is too short not to travel”.

How did you get involved in travel?
"After studying food and hotel management and working a couple of years in the industry I decided it was time for a change…..I always loved to travel as I have a bucket list to tick off as life is just too short to waste any time. I applied for a job in the travel business and since that time never looked back. I love my work and is passionate about what I do. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"My first ever safari was in Botswana, a truly African safari experience, we stayed at Sanctuary Stanley's Camp in the Okavango Delta and after a fantastic safari with mokoros on the river we went for a picnic lunch and while enjoying the beautiful scenery a herd of Elephants came walking through the big trees making their way towards the the river to drink water, it was a very scary feeling but also excited as I have never witnessed anything like that before, it was truly something I would remember forever."
