I am an adventurous traveler with an insatiable wanderlust, wholeheartedly embracing every journey with boundless curiosity. My thirst for exploration takes me to diverse cultures and landscapes. Adding an exciting dimension to my travels, I am a passionate surfer, seeking out the perfect wave locally. The ocean's vastness mirrors my free spirit, making each surfing experience deeply fulfilling.
Beyond my individual pursuits, I am also a parent, sharing the wonders of travel with my children. Together, we create cherished memories and instill in them a sense of wonder for the world's beauty.
As I explore the world, I inspire others to embrace the beauty of our planet, protect its treasures, and create a positive impact on the places I visit. My adventurous spirit, love for surfing, and commitment to fostering connections make me a compassionate travel consultant.

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Embarking on a unique travel experience in Botswana, I immersed myself in the untamed wilderness, embracing the beauty of the Okavango Delta through a mokoro trip and walking safari. Drifting along the tranquil waters in a traditional dugout canoe, I savored the serenity of the Delta, surrounded by the sights and sounds of diverse wildlife.
The mokoro trip offered an intimate encounter with the region's rich biodiversity, as our skilled local guide navigated through winding channels and lush lagoons. Hippos was spotted, while graceful elephants and vibrant birdlife enchanted your senses.
Continuing my adventure, we ventured on a walking safari, venturing into the heart of the Delta's untouched terrain. On foot, you connected intimately with the natural rhythms of the land, tracking footprints and spotting elusive creatures with heightened awareness.
Throughout my journey, we marveled at the unspoiled beauty of Botswana, feeling a profound connection to nature and its inhabitants. This immersive experience left an indelible mark, instilling in me a deep appreciation for the delicate balance of life in the wild and reaffirming your passion for eco-conscious travel."

This is pretty unacceptable for someone whose entire job is to facilitate. If this is not her role, then it is not clear what service KimKim is providing apart from being a useless middle man that is taking money that would otherwise... read more

Jun 18 - Jul 1, 2023
This was a once in a lifetime trip and KimKim made it spectacular. They helped plan everything and had all of the transfers arranged, so all we had to do was enjoy! We started out by going to Sabi Sands and stayed at Sambambilia Lodge, it was amazing! We had a 3 hour safari each morning at 6 a.m. and a 3 hour safari each afternoon at 3:30 p.m. We went when it was winter is South Africa, but they provided hot waterbottles for your hands/lap and blankets for the safaris. Our very first... read more
