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.

“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. ”

“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. ”
