Sam's passion for travel was inspired by her parents who spent a lot of time travelling for work and leisure all over the globe. After university she set off for a year. The journey took her through Chile, Peru, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Fiji and Australia before embarking on a camping trip across South Africa, Namibia and Botswana to Victoria Falls in Zambia and concluded in Ghana.
Since then Sam has continued to travel to destinations across the world, but none struck a chord more than South Africa. Her love of the country has allowed her to spend lots of time exploring its diversity and beauty. Having served as a police officer for ten years, Sam decided the travel bug could not be contained any longer and decided to move into the travel industry where she could share her knowledge and enthusiasm with clients.
I'll never forget when…
On a recent visit to Notten's Bush Camp in the Sabi Sand Reserve I went on my first game drive of my stay. I was amazed by the wildlife we found and we were lucky enough to spot the Big Five of elephants, rhino, buffalo, lion and a beautiful female leopard in just three hours. Towards the end of the drive we stopped in the bush for sundowners and we were welcomed to a bush barbeque where we were treated to boerewors (South African sausages) and kudu biltong. This was the perfect way to watch the sun go down and complete a memorable day.
