I grew up travelling all over the world with a Father that worked in the airlines but I started my own serious travels in 1988 spending 6 months travelling around Europe and then lived the life in London as all backpackers do and travelled between working around the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Egypt, Turkey, Morocco and Israel before heading to Africa for a 6 week sojourn – WELL, the bug bit me and I ended up working the overland circuit taking groups on camping safaris to Zaire, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia. I then conquered a 6 month epic overland from UK to Nairobi through Central Africa in 1991 which was a life changing experience. I finally left the continent in 1997 to come home and luckily found a company I could work for to sell and share my passion for the place that had captured my heart and soul. I have been with The Africa Safari Co. for 17 years now and I am lucky enough to travel back to Africa twice a year to attend trade shows and travel to places old and new (and in much luxury than my earlier days) – I have not given up ticking off my bucket list in Africa yet – stay tuned!!!
