What do you love most about Africa?  

I love our unparalleled beauty and biodiversity, as well as the exquisite wines and cuisine we have to offer – from so many regions and cultures. Our beaches and marine life as well as our safari life! 

Where are you heading in 2021? What adventures await you?  

I hope to be able to travel to Namibia – I have always wanted to do a 4×4 trip through the desert and experience the beauty of desert and ocean in one country! 

What is the favourite thing about your role in Africa Travel Week?  

I love engaging with our clients and learning about their special offers in Africa which they can offer our buyers and travellers – dealing with people who are passionate about promoting Africa’s beauty! 

Based on your 5 senses, what are you looking forward to most during the Connect in the City Live in September?  

This would definitely be sight & feel & taste as we offer our exhibitors and buyers the experiences they can have at our restaurants, excursions and interaction with locals!
