Arista, Africa Safari Specialist

My passion for travelling around my home country, South Africa, was nurtured from an early age. Growing up we spent holidays criss-crossing the country, covering everything from the mainstream to the truly out-of-the-way. Carrying my love for travel, exploring and knowledge forward, I graduated with a degree in Tourism Management. A few years later I set my heart on a job in travel, and was thankfully snapped up for my role at Audley.

I have since I started at Audley in 2007 travelled extensively through Tanzania and Kenya as well which has been a lifelong dream. During these trips I developed a passion for wildlife photography and spent time exploring the northern safari circuit that includes the Serengeti National Park, southern reserves in Tanzania and all the Indian Ocean islands. In Kenya I hopped between the remote northern conservancies, venturing through the Great Rift Valley's lakes, visited many camps in the Masai Mara and explored the Kenyan Coast.

My love for my home continent runs very deep and my passion for exploring remains a continuous ambition.

I'll never forget when…

My most memorable experience was the first time I visited Tanzania and the excitement of seeing the Ngorongoro Crater.

We journeyed quite far that day and it has always been a dream of mine to see it. As we approached I had little hope to see anything from the rim that day because it was very misty and the crater wasn't visible. We stopped at the viewing point for a break anyway and as I stood around chatting to my guide, the mist just cleared away for a few seconds and the crater appeared in front of us with the sun beaming down on it. It was a truly humbling moment.
