I love working in travel because there is no better feeling than experiencing something unique, authentic, new and completely different to your daily routine. Travel is about the spontaneous moments of experience things that scares you.  Africa and Southern Africa has such a diversity to offer, from its majestic and landscapes, friendly citizens and amazing cultural experiences.

I love Africa as it simply never stops beating. Whether you are in the bush or the city. It is fascinating, the people are vibrant, our wildlife is prolific and our birds simply leave you speechless. From East Africa to Victoria Falls to Okavango Delta, the terrain changes, the smiles are endless. The wildlife is incredible and will change your life.  Our food is phenomenal and of course we have top class wines. Africa is my life, my passion and my home.

Its that moment when the day calms, and you are in the middle of the bush, and the burnt orange colours of the sun captivate you in such away that you forget that there is a world with a momentum of its own out there; this is one of that moments I want to share with our world citizens that have a longing to visit Southern Africa, truly diverse, and naturally captivating.
