My passion for travel -and my subsequent carreer in the travel industry – began after my graduation from UCLA, where I studied Archaeology. The summer after graduation was spent on a dig in the Atacama Desert of Nothern Chile, which also happened to be my first time out of the US. This experience helped to clarify that my true passion was not for Archaeology but rather for travel, and I haven’t stopped travelling since! My journeys through Africa have included Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Mozambique as well as Egypt and Jordan in the Middle East. I have had incredible game viewing experiences in Kenya’s Masai Mara, Tanzania’s Ngorogoro Crater, Namibia’s Etosha and Botswana’s Chobe. I have explored the narrow streets of Zanzibar’s Stone Town, come face to face with Great White sharks in Gansbaai (South Africa), viewed Cape Town and it’s flanking mountains from Robben Island, flown in a (teeny tiny) helicopter over the majestic Victoria Falls, climbed the tallest sand dune in the world in Namibia, glided through the life giving waters of the Okavango Delta in a wooden mokoro, and so much more! Africa is every bit as magical and amazing as it is made out to be, and is a place that I absolutely believe everyone should travel to at least once – but preferrably many times in their lives.
