Jessica Plumb

Jessica Plumb - Assistant Consultant

Specialist countries:


Jessica holds a Geography degree from the University of Exeter and a Masters in Environment and Development from King’s College London, but perhaps most importantly has a lifelong love of travel, wildlife and the outdoors. In between interning for a sustainability charity and marketing international education programmes, she has carried out biological fieldwork in Costa Rica, backpacked from London to Istanbul (taking the scenic route via the Balkans and Eastern Europe), explored The Caucasus’ and helped set up a social enterprise for young conservationists.

Prior to university she spent time in northern Namibia volunteering at a rural school, which sparked an interest in the continent and all it has to offer. A few years later she was back, but this time with four wheels (and a couple of spares) to undertake a rather bumpy Land Rover expedition across Botswana and the Okavango delta. It was this journey that really ignited her passion for the Southern African bush, and she soon began plotting her next African adventure.

Luckily, the wait wouldn’t be too long; Jessica has just returned from a wonderful 6 months overlanding 32,000km from South Africa to Tanzania and back again, covering nine countries and visiting as many national parks en-route as possible.

Now back in London, Jessica is extremely excited to start training as a Tanzania specialist with Expert Africa.
