Clare has enjoyed the life of an expat living in Africa and Asia during her informative years. Clare has a real love of the outdoors although often finds herself appreciating it behind the lens of a camera or capsizing her boat!
Clare is mainly involved in the management of our website, particularly imagery, and would welcome any photos you'd like to share on our site.
Jo's enthusiasm for safari as a child when her parents worked in Zambia, then Kenya. Jo quickly fancied herself as a safari expert and has been a keen game tracker ever since. Although, more recently, she is very keen to trial many of the (more luxurious) beach lodges we now offer.
Jo's main role is website development and marketing but is delighted to become involved in planning of trips for anyone that needs her.
Charlie is rather obsessed with far flung holidays. Since graduating university with a Master’s Degree in Tourism Management 10 years ago, she has spent every moment possible travelling across the world building successful programmes for some the most recognised names in the travel industry. She has specialised in tailor made travel from the Med, to the Indian Ocean, India and back to the Caribbean. Her first love was doing as little as possible on perfectly manicured tropical beaches. That was until she visited Africa.
Charlie fell for Africa the moment she went on safari. For her, no other experience is more relaxing, more exciting, or sticks in your mind quite like it. Charlie now specialises in Tanzania safaris and loves creating the perfect, bespoke trip or honeymoon. She knows the beaches across the Indian Ocean better than anyone.
