How long have you been working for Acacia: Since Mid 2009 in the office, before that 3 years as a tour leader
What is your favorite Acacia tour, highlights and activities: it would have to be the GAG28 - Gorilla and Game parks. I have a huge passion for the scenery, people, mountains, game parks, Bwindi gorilla trekking, Jinja for the activities and to highlight the end of the tour... Zanzibar!
What is your favorite country and your top highlight of this country: Namibia and Etosha National Park. The night game flood lit waterholes and the vast landscapes of this country is a sure winner.. A must see destination!
If you could choose a favorite activity and game park what would it be: Skydiving in swakopmund, Namibia and my favorite game park has to be Lake Nakuru in Kenya (the flamingo's are at abundance!)
What are some of the common misconceptions about Africa that passengers have: That travellers cheques are used easily in Africa and yes... it does get cold and it does rain in Africa!
What travel tip would you give to first time overlander’s: Bring plenty of small USD notes (great for shopping in the markets!), a universal adapter and a great sense of humour!
Where would you like to see Acacia travel to in the future and why: The whole continent... Too many countries to see!
