Anna, Southern Africa Specialist

After graduating from university with a history degree and enjoying an internship in Bordeaux, Anna worked in the luxury lettings market in central London for several years. After holidays to Southeast Asia, Oman, most of Europe, Morocco and the USA, she eventually discovered South Africa on a backpacking trip through the Kruger and KwaZulu-Natal, and promptly fell in love with the people and culture.

Realising that a change of career was needed she left the property industry to take up a volunteer post in Kenya, focussing on wildlife conservation. This led to further travels through Africa, including Tanzania's ‘Northern Circuit’ collection of safari parks, Zanzibar, Mozambique and Swaziland and Lesotho in South Africa. She eventually ended up working in a township nursery in Cape Town, where she got the opportunity to explore the Winelands region and Garden Route during her days off.

Since returning to the UK and joining Audley, Anna has since further explored even more of South Africa and Zambia (including Victoria Falls), in great depth. This knowledge, acquired over many years, now allows her to plan personalised trips based on each client's specific interests.

Anna's Most Memorable Experience

I was in the Sabi Sands in the Kruger and it was sundowner drinks time after a fantastic afternoon's game drive. We had seen three leopards, one up a tree with an impala kill, a herd of elephant and a pride of lion lazing in the sun. Just as the gin's were about to be poured a call came through on the radio and suddenly our ranger and tracker were ready to go; another vehicle had spotted a pangolin. Sundowners cancelled, we piled back into our vehicle and raced off as the sun was setting to join the others. Pangolin are so rare some people spend a lifetime in the bush and never see one, so it was wonderful to see this strange creature, first curled up in a ball, then waddle off on its hind legs oblivious to the crowds its appearance had generated that evening.
