Growing up bumping into lions or rhino on the walk home in the Kruger National Park in South Africa, I always had a passion for wildlife. Throughout the years I managed safari lodges across Southern and East Africa. I also spent extensive time in Eswatini, across the length of Malawi, in the shadow of Kilimanjaro in Kenya and on walking safaris in Zambia. I’m greatly looking forward to sharing my passion for this wondrous amazing continent with you.
What's your favourite destination?
It’s hard to pick one. Malawi for the people and the lake of stars; Kenya for the variety of landscapes and wildlife; Zambia for a truly authentic back to basics safari experience.
Which destination is top of your bucket list, and why?
To see more of Zambia, mainly for the walking safari. I find that nothing gives better perspective than walking through the African bush. However, the alluring combination of seeing gorilla in the Volcanoes National Park and shoebill in Akagera National Park has me dreaming of a trip to Rwanda.
How many languages do you speak?
Only English fluently. I’m still practising my Kiswahili but I try my best wherever I go!
Which five items do you always pack when travelling?
My camera, a birding book for the area, a trusty pair of boots, sunglasses and a good bush hat
What's your top travel tip?
Get stuck in wherever you are and never stop asking questions.
