Travel is my passion combined with customer service, there is nothing more enjoyable than passing this knowledge and experience to my valued clients. I have visited many desinations but Africa is my true love, the diversity of the continent exceeds all my expectations.

I find travel very addictive as it is rewarding, interesting and adventurous and I love that you learn about the different places and cultures in the world. I have travelled extensively to America, Africa and the Indian Ocean, Australia, Far East and much of Europe. My favourite destination has to be Australia, even though I still have a lot more to visit. I would like to see South America and New Zealand and some more of the Far East in the future.
