More about Karen...
I have amazing memories of wild camping, roasting marshmallows on the fire and canoeing down Kwando River. With limited access to schools in the region, I attended junior school in the town of Victoria Falls and often went whitewater rafting on the mighty Zambezi river – an unforgettable experience. I later finished my education in South Africa.

With my wide experience of adventures across Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa I soon found my passion for the travel industry and I’ve never looked back. In 2010 I joined a skydiving company in Swakopmund, where I met my partner, and I loved the adrenaline lifestyle. However, safaris in the bush kept calling me back, so I decided to expand our family safari company and we opened an office in Swakopmund. My family and I moved to the UK in 2020 and I joined the Expert Africa team in 2023. I love talking about my country, Namibia, so do give me a call to discuss your own adventure!
