Whether you are an individual traveller looking to volunteer and make a difference, are coming to southern Africa for a unique family holiday, or are looking to take your students on an educational field trip, I will be there to guide you through the projects we have on offer. Using the knowledge and experience I have obtained throughout my education and career, I will explain why our projects are so important to conservation and help you curate the trip of your dreams!
I have a Master’s degree in Conservation Biology and have conducted research in South Africa many times. I have also been lucky enough to teach future conservationists about the importance of the Kruger National Park from within the Kruger! I have always been passionate about conservation and travel and I fell in love with South Africa during my first trip at 18 years old as a solo traveller. This passion has only grown over the years through the incredible experiences I’ve had out there, from monitoring the ‘Big 5’ in South Africa and Zimbabwe, to experiencing a veterinary procedure on an injured rhino in the wild. Nothing can beat the African bush!
I chose to work for African Conservation Experience as we truly understand what is important when it comes to conserving wildlife and what it takes to make a difference on a conservation project in Africa. I’m really excited to share with our volunteers how their support truly makes a difference. They all play a vital role in supporting current research and national conservation efforts, helping to create a brighter future for Africa’s wildlife.
Further from Africa but closer to home, I am passionate about all animals, big or small, and especially my dopey German Shepherd called Moose!
