Courtney, South Africa & Madagascar Specialist

As a child I wanted to be an explorer or president of the United States, so after college I joined the Peace Corps in order to put my love of travel and sense of community service to good use. I ended up in Madagascar where I spent just over two years working to create sustainable programs in one of the country's rich rainforest regions. Having gained a deep insight into what makes Madagascar special, I then decided to spend some time on the mainland of Africa, exploring South Africa, Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania and Kenya. On my return I joined Audley as a specialist for South Africa and Madagascar. Although I come from Green Bay, Wisconsin, I'm excited by my move to Boston (while remaining a dedicated Packers fan) and looking forward to continuing to explore anywhere I can, whenever I can.

I'll never forget when…

While in South Africa recently I spent some time exploring the Swartberg Pass and Cango Caves near Oudtshoorn. I'm not normally a mountain person but driving up the pass on a winding road and exploring the windy terrain with its vivid protea and views of the neatly divided farmland below was staggering. As wonderful as it was, I was even more impressed by the caves below. Every chamber is more dramatic than the last. At one point our guide dramatically switched the lights from low to high to fully illuminate the cavern and everyone gasped audibly. It was a powerful depiction of the power and brilliance of nature.
