As a purveyor of luxurious, unique, and authentic travel by land and sea for over 25 years, I specialize in facilitating individualized and custom experiences that cater to my clients’ travel dreams. I have traveled to over 80 countries and all seven continents. I am proud to say I continue to add more countries every year as well as return to some of my favorites!
I have been designated as a Signature Travel Network Expert for Eastern and Southern Africa and have traveled to Africa multiple times. I recently returned from Kenya, and I spent a month in 2020 in Rwanda and Tanzania to review COVID-19 protocol standards and participate in new experiences. In 2019, I traveled to South Africa to visit new lodges, camps, and hotels, which added to my existing knowledge base. I love to experience many unique excursions as well as learn about conservation, interacting and learning about wildlife, and visiting tribes. I am passionate about animals and culture around the world! I love curating “real” life experiences while planning incredible itineraries to exciting destinations worldwide!
I establish and maintain strong local contacts around the world to ensure that you have the best tour operators, guides, drivers, and transportation, and special amenities to make your vacation the best it can be. Other special services I offer, which set me apart, is that I will take out the maps and share my photos and “walk” you through a typical day on a safari, for instance, and review what to do before your safari even begins, and offer tips regarding visas, immunizations, and packing.
My uniqueness is not just my destination knowledge but my enthusiasm for travel. I consider myself an ambassador who’s responsible for educating and encouraging all to travel and see the world and thus bring better understanding between nations. I have a contagious passion for our world, especially wildlife and culture. My goal is to bring your vacation dream to life while making a difference in our world. Every year, I am proud to donate back a portion of my sales to conservation in Africa, which helps protect our wildlife as well as provide education and medicine to local villages.
It will be my pleasure to assist you on a trip of a lifetime soon, and together, we can make a difference!
