Growing up on the banks of the Zambezi River in Zambia, I spent my childhood running through the wilderness and swimming in pools while elephants splashed around me.
I caught the travel bug at a very early age and after boarding school in South Africa and university in Cape Town, I spent a year exploring Europe before settling in London. After each trip, I’d begin saving up and planning for the next one as soon as I came off of the plane.
I have been very fortunate to have been able to travel so extensively, and although I’m still just as eager to see the world, my heart will always belong to Africa.
From its diverse landscapes, amazing animals and passionate people, it has a magic which enchants and changes you forever. I’m so excited to work for Audley and help others create trips to experience the wild for themselves.

I'll never forget when…
After watching a mother cheetah and her cubs in the Ongava Concession in Namibia, we were heading to our sundowner spot when we came across a lioness sauntering along the road. She led us to her pride: a big male lion sitting cavalierly on an ant hill with his three lionesses and seven cubs all playing boisterously around him. Some of the braver cubs were climbing onto him and pulling his ears and tail. Sitting in the game viewer with our drinks watching the king of the jungle with his family while the sun was setting, was as a magical experience.
