Inspirations when I design any itinerary
I like to feel the soul of a property and the destination. I personally don’t want to travel like a goldfish in a bowl, I’d rather feel free to swim in the big ocean. I want to create an itinerary that gives the client the freedom to go “touch it”. Traveling offers so many opportunities for exploring new foods, cultures, wines, local traditions. There is something to be said for sharing a local tradition or experience that is found no where else, enjoying that “sense of place” in an authentic way. I also love traveling with those who have an intrepid soul and are true explorers at heart.
Travel DNA My travel DNA always supports conservation and sustainability. I believe one hand washes the other. Tourism is the perfect tool allowing me to continue to build awareness with conservation and sustainability. My travel itineraries always include these three key ingredients: Authentic, innovative and memorable.
Travel to Africa is always a life changing experience. Most travelers return many times over. Many people travel for different reasons. Planning a trip to Africa can be somewhat intimidating and very overwhelming, leading to many questions.
