Owner & Travel Designer
My love for Africa, her wildlife and nature started as a young child when we often travel as family all over South Africa. One of the places we often visit was Kruger National Park and it still is one of my favourite places all over. After school, I studied Marketing as well as Travel and Tourism and received my diploma in both these fields, but Travel and Tourism is in my blood, my passion and love. On completion of my studies, I moved to Mpumalanga where I started my career in Travel and Tourism. I had the privilege of travelling all over Southern Africa, from South Africa to Botswana, Namibia, Victoria Falls and to the north and south of Mozambique. I will always be grateful for the opportunity to have been able to gain so much experience in the travel industry during the first 15 years of my career. In 2016 I started African Savanna Travel. I love what I do and have never looked back!
If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life – Mark Anthony
