I love being out in the bush. Your worries melt away with the birdsong – everything seems to just makes sense.

Specialist countries
Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Seychelles

I grew up in South Africa, where my love of travel inspired me to study a Diploma in Travel & Tourism. In 1999 I started in the travel industry, based in Johannesburg and working for a leading specialist safari company. This only fuelled my enthusiasm for wildlife and safaris – so in 2001 I snapped up the offer to transfer to their Windhoek office, where I took every opportunity I could to travel around Namibia.

Following a dream to travel and work overseas, I moved to London in 2002. There I joined a competitor of Expert Africa, based in North London. They also had a strong focus the ethical and responsible aspects of travel – and it was here that I felt my eyes were opened to the importance of being a responsible traveller, and how it can enhance a holiday experience. After seven enjoyable years of working there, and travelling back to Africa whenever possible, I moved to Primrose Hill when the chance arose to develop and launch a brand new Africa programme from scratch. 

The rest, as they say, is history. I have been part of the Expert Africa team since 2011 and I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else now. When I joined Expert Africa, my knowledge was very broad, essentially an overview of many of the countries that we offer. But through extensive, first-hand, on-the-ground research trips; I’ve spent the last several years expanding on and honing my knowledge of Botswana, Zambia and Seychelles, as well as revisiting Namibia to stay up-to-date.

Megan's most recent Africa trips


Botswana

Botswana

Nov 18 13 nights

It had been a while since I was last in Botswana and I couldn't wait to get out there again. On this trip I focused on a number of new camps that I hadn't yet seen, and I managed to squeeze in a few old favourites too. I was blown away by the high standards of the camps, the food, the guiding and the game viewing. The rains were late in arriving in Botswana, so while it was very hot, the game viewing was absolutely top class and far exceeded my expectations. I am reminded just why I love this country so much - it's the full package!

Seychelles

Seychelles

Jul 15 10 nights

My return visit to Seychelles didn’t disappoint, it was as beautiful as I’d remembered. The highlight on this trip had to be La Digue Island. It’s quiet and very laid back. We happily explored the Veuve Nature Reserve and swam at the stunning Anse Source d’Argent, arguably one of the most photogenic beaches in Seychelles. The local Creole cuisine is really worth trying. A simple little restaurant in the nature reserve - think long benches and feet in the sand – provided some of the most delicious food we enjoyed on our trip.

Namibia

Namibia

Jun 14 15 nights

Having lived and travelled extensively in Namibia, I looked forward to re-familiarising myself with some of my favourite places. I loved the freedom and flexibility I had driving myself around the Namib Naukluft, and the Namibrand Reserve. The second half of my trip I flew by light aircraft between stops; the birds-eye view of the Damaraland landscape never fails to leave me in awe! My final stop, Okonjima, was the perfect end to the trip - top notch guiding, beautiful big cats and a surprising amount of other wildlife. I can’t wait to return.
