I am a consultant for Salty.Travel and have always wanted to travel the world. Having been to most of Southern Africa, I am itching to share my travel experiences. This is my passion and nothing makes me happier than sending someone on a once in a lifetime trip that will leave them with beautiful memories that will last forever.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I specialize in South Africa and all the major tours and activities it has to offer; having grown up in Zimbabwe, Vic Falls is also one of my specialties; Botswana and Mauritius ."
How did you get involved in travel?
"I studied Hospitality Management, then worked a little in the timeshare industry as a Sales consultant. That's when I realized Travel and Tourism was my passion and as such I ended up branching completely into the travel industry."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I went on an Educational to Mauritius and loved every bit of it. The people were so warm and friendly, the food and wine was world class and I got to do so many fun activities. From snorkeling to swimming with the dolphins, this travel experience allowed me to tick off a number of bucket list experiences. Most of the island is unspoiled so I got in touch with nature. This was truly an experience I will never forget."

Your trip culminates back in South Africa with more safari adventures in Kruger National Park.
Chock-full of otherworldly landscapes, exotic wildlife, starry skies, and friendly locals, make the most of Namibia's vastness and spend at least two weeks exploring the country at a slower pace. This epic 16-day road trip kicks off in the capital and works its way to Gamsberg, the Atlantic coast, the Namib Desert, the NamibRand Nature Reserve, Naukluft Park, and the Kalahari Desert before returning to Windhoek.
Perfect for first-timers to Africa, this two-week road trip explores Namibia's wild, beautiful, and safe environs. The adventure kicks off in Windhoek, where you'll drive through two deserts (Kalahari and Namib) known for epic dunes, rivers, canyons, and gorges. From here, continue west toward the Atlantic coast before heading north to meet nomadic tribes. Finish with several days at Etosha National Park—as well as a private reserve—for the ultimate game-viewing experience.
Often called "Africa for beginners," this eight-day road trip is a great introduction to the otherworldly landscapes, activities, and culture of Namibia. Kick off the trip in Windhoek, the modern capital, before delving into the Namib Desert for massive dunes, rivers, canyons, and gorges. From here, continue west toward the Atlantic coast for two nights of seaside splendor. Circle back to Windhoek by way of Spitzkoppe—the "Matterhorn" of Namibia—for some hiking and rock art to finish the adventure.
An excellent way to cover a lot of ground and see South Africa's top highlights is to hire a car and go on a road trip. The best time to hop in a vehicle is during the shoulder season (spring and fall) when the prices are low and fewer travelers are on the road. Yet each season offers fine weather and excellent opportunities for wildlife spotting and outdoor excursions—it all depends on where in the country you plan to be. Read on to find out what season suits you best.
Kruger is the park with the greatest diversity of wildlife in South Africa, and you could spend up to a week enjoying safari and nature walks here. A minimum of two days will give you a real taste for the park’s stupendous wildlife viewing, but you’ll want at least five days to truly appreciate its diversity. With a park this spectacular, even two weeks isn't too long, especially when combined with Victoria Falls.
