Having grown up between England and Zambia, I have always been intrigued by different cultures and exploring and understanding their differences as well as their shared history. I have spent holidays island-hopping through Greece and tramping across New Zealand’s North and South Islands, but a constant throughout my life, has been exploring the national parks of Zambia. I feel so lucky to have had this opportunity, something which sparked my passion for safari and travel in Africa.
I have always loved sharing my knowledge of Africa and after working in London for two years, I decided to move to Botswana to work as a camp manager, which is where my love for the Okavango Delta really began.
I was smitten by the richness and diversity of wildlife, the ever-changing landscape, and the incredibly welcoming people which created a safari experience unlike anywhere else I had experienced in Africa.
I'll never forget when…
One evening in the Okavango Delta we were ending a night drive and came across two male lions resting on a flood plain. We stopped and watched for a while, then, as we were about to leave, our whole vehicle started to vibrate as all of a sudden both lions started to roar right beside us. The bush fell completely silent as the lions announced their dominance and power, their roars filling the air. It’s moments like these that display the sheer unpredictability of Africa, and that make me fall in love with it even more each time.
