Catherine 1.JPG

Catherine was born in Cape Town, South Africa and has spent most of her life exploring the corners of her continent as well as abroad. One of her earliest childhood memories is being charged by an elephant in Namibia while driving themselves around the country!

Her family spent every holiday venturing anywhere that involved nature, wildlife, and camping under the stars and so her love for Africa began. Catherine has worked in luxury travel since graduating from the University of Cape Town in 2006 and has travelled within South Africa, and to Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Kenya and northern Tanzania. She has also visited the beautiful Reunion Island, as well as the UK, most of Europe, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore.

Catherine's personal favourites:

Inhaling the morning mist that hangs over the plantations of the Karatu highlands near the Ngorongoro crater, barefoot dining on the beach whilst watching glow worms illuminate the waves on Benguerra island in Mozambique, driving through the Amboseli National Park and being witness to its incredible stark contrasts in terrain, listening to the vivid retelling of scenes from the Anglo Zulu war at Rorke’s Drift (goosebumps!), high tea and bubbly on the Rovos Rail journey from Cape Town to Pretoria, cycling through the rice paddys of the Hoi An countryside in Vietnam passing by water buffalos, and sleeping on a bed roll in the middle of the salt pans of the Makgadikgadi national park under the magnificent night sky.

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
