Harriet, Southern Africa Specialist

Harriet first visited Africa at the age of ten on a family trip to South Africa — and has been hooked ever since. Whilst at St Andrews University, studying for a degree in Spanish and Business, she took every opportunity to head back.

During her final summer at university she spent two-and-a-half months travelling across Kenya as part of a volunteering project, finishing on the beautiful island of Lamu. After university, she further indulged her passion for travel, spending several months travelling in Colombia, Argentina and Brazil, before finding her way back to Africa where she managed a luxury safari camp in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park.

Joining Audley has given Harriet the opportunity to return to Zambia as well as travel extensively in Botswana and Namibia.

Harriet's Most Memorable Experience

We were nearing the end of our evening game drive at Nxai Pan National Park and heading back to camp as the sun set, G&Ts in hand, when we turned the corner and found two cheetahs reclining in the middle of the road. This was my first cheetah sighting on the trip and they were so relaxed that we were able to sit and watch them as they luxuriated in their nap before slowly getting up to take a drink.

They are such beautiful animals and it felt like a real privilege to spend that much time with them, with the added bonus of the stunning light as the sun set orange in the sky - a perfect end to a wonderful day.
