How did you get involved in travel?

"After 5 years in the food styling, content writing and media industry, I got the opportunity to join the tourism industry. I've got an eye for detail and enjoy planning and organizing! Outside of work I love adventure sports and playing tourist in my own city, Cape Town!"

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Recently I traveled to the Okavango Delta, Botswana where I experienced the most amazing safari. During my trip, I had the opportunity to listen to elephants and hippos around my tent at night, take evening bush walks, and enjoy beautiful morning mokoro excursions. While having coffee and biscuits on an island during our mokoro excursion a hippo appeared from the water, made a few loud sounds and swam the other way! It was beautiful to see and hear!"
