If you are joining us from the Americas or Europe, I will be your first point of contact; from chatting to you about your project choice to arranging insurance, sending you all the information you need about the conservation work and travelling to Africa – and answering any questions you have, of course!

Ever since I was young I have dreamt of travelling to new places, and I really believe that by turning these dreams into a reality I have allowed myself to grow as a person. I recently graduated with a BSc in International Wildlife Biology, and this provided me with the opportunity to combine my passion for conservation with my love of travel. During my travels I’ve had some fantastic experiences; I’ve got up close to elephants in Uganda, trekked through the cloud forests of Honduras and swam alongside whale sharks in Mexico. Whilst these memories will stay with me forever, nothing can compare to my time in South Africa where I tracked big game such as lion, leopard and black rhino, and was even lucky enough to see a pack of wild dogs make a kill! A friend once told me that it’s not possible to visit Africa without falling in love, and they were absolutely right. I’m now very excited to be working for African Conservation Experience, and enabling others to also experience the incredible cultures, landscapes and wildlife of southern Africa!
