Biography

It is often said: “A leopard can’t change its spots”, but the critics have been proved wrong! My younger years were consumed in a world of hospitality and culinary capers, but a ‘brief’ overseas trip turned into a life-changing, decade-long adventure – shaping my passion for travel and exploration and forging the best job and lifestyle in the world!

After joining a group trip to West Africa as a backpacker – I crossed over to become a Tour / Expedition Leader for 9 years throughout The Middle East and South America, with Africa at the forefront. Before hanging up my boots, an intrepid Trans Africa Expedition journeyed me from the UK down Africa’s west coast to Southern Africa and back up the east coast to the north – travelling through 29 African countries for 11 months!

Travel isn’t only about seeing or hearing the sights and sounds but immersing oneself in local life, customs and traditions. Enjoying a mint tea in an open-air courtyard with a Nubian family, wandering through ramshackle market stalls and only conversing with a simple smile or being a guest at an Ethiopian coffee ceremony – authentic experiences and discovering some lesser-known gems can be as rewarding as the conventional must-sees and dos. A treasure trove of travel stories to over 55 international countries across 7 continents is waiting to be shared with you.

Whether compiling your pre-travel documents, answering your enquiries or clocking up travel miles to “The Mother Continent”, I will inspire you with my first-hand knowledge and turn your ‘bucket list’ into lifelong, tangible memories. Don’t just see Africa – come and experience it with us!
