Daniel developed a love for travel during early family trips to west Africa, India and countries across Europe. He then started planning his own to Southeast Asia, Sri Lanka and Australia, leaving a senior role with a coastal and marina property company to embark on his adventure.
He travelled extensively throughout Southeast Asia, his highlights being a trip to Myanmar, motorcycling from Hanoi to Saigon in Vietnam, and visiting orangutans in Tanjung National Park, Indonesia. He eventually settled in Australia, where he worked in Melbourne for a year before spending time on the country's east coast.
He joined the Hidden Beaches team in London to build on his passion for travel. Since being with the team Daniel has visited some amazing beach destinations in the Seychelles, Zanzibar and Thailand as well as experiencing an awe-inspiring safari trip to Tanzania.
I'll never forget when…
The highlight of my trip to Tanzania was a stay at Beho Beho Safari Lodge — and in particular — the walking safari. It is one of the few properties where it’s possible to walk straight from the camp itself out onto a safari walk, which I did with my guide: Godlisten. After a short time he gave us the signal to stop as we approached some long grass, we waited with a mix of anticipation and nervousness, not knowing what was close by. Moments later we saw a trunk appear out of this long grass and point towards us as it picked up on our scent. This was quickly followed by a herd of elephants crossing our path just meters away. To get so close while on foot was a wonderful experience.
