More about Megan...
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



Oct 23 13 nights

What a joy to revisit two of my favourite places in Africa, the South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi. The discomfort created by the October heat was quickly forgotten when out on activities; the wildlife was phenomenal with more lion than I could count, leopard after leopard and huge numbers of elephants with lots of little ones, and some stunning birds. Things make sense in the bush and I left having met some incredible people; I could have stayed on for at least another few weeks quite happily.



Aug 22 13 nights

I was incredibly excited about heading back out to Africa post-COVID, it had been far too long! On this trip I focused on Kafue National Park, which I hadn't yet had a chance to visit on my previous Zambia trips. It exceeded all my expectations. I was blown away by the high standards of the camps, the food, the wildlife and birdlife, not forgetting the passion the Kafue guides have for this wild and still relatively untamed corner of Zambia. What also really struck me was how the landscape and animal behaviour changed as I travelled from the plains in the north to the central/southern region of the park. It was fascinating and I can't wait to return.



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!



Contributor 5th edition 2018

Having been an Expert Africa specialist on Botswana since 2011, my main role on this book was arranging one of the major contributors research trips to Botswana. I also contributed significantly to the chapter on planning and preparation.



Contributor 4th edition 2014

Having quite recently been on several trips to the Makgadikgadi, Okavango, Kwando-Linyanti and Chobe areas of Botswana, I was able to relive and share many of those experiences while helping to update several chapters of this 4th edition guide.
