Nick started his love of Africa from an extremely early age having been born in Nairobi. Although he later moved back to the UK and spent a spell specialising in travel to South East Asia, Nick quickly returned to working in Africa. Firstly in South Africa but, for the last 10 years, specialising in safari holidays throughout the continent.
Nick has extensive knowledge of all the countries within which we operate and keeps this current with regular trips back and forth. Nick’s love of Africa is infectious and you’ll really enjoy planning your trip with him.
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.
Having spent most of her life tracking British and North American wildlife, Phoebe has now been inspired by her colleagues at S&B to take a look at the plethora of natural wonders in East Africa. While she mostly keeps the accounts as trim and tidy as a well packed suitcase, Phoebe also spends a lot of time day-dreaming about the game viewing and beach lazing each of our customers experience. If you have any payment queries, please send her an email and she’ll get back to you just as soon as she snaps out of her Safari & Beach reverie.
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.
Gina is our newest member of the Safari & Beach team, she has travelled far and wide and spent several years living abroad but it was when she first backpacked to Africa nearly 30 years ago that she fell in love.
Already an expert in lying down on tropical beaches she discovered the real Africa when she went off the beaten track and spent a few months driving though the Sahara and Western Africa in an old banger. However, it was the pull of East Africa that inspired her and brought her back to the epic Tanzania, Zanzibar, Kenya and Lamu. Nothing comes close to sitting around the camp fire at night time listening to tales under the myriad of stars or lying in your tent listening to the roars of nature snuggled up under your duvet. Gina adores wildlife and admits to crying every time she sees a baby elephant, baby zebra, lion, cheetah, dung beetle, leopard or well anything really!
Then there’s the white sands, turquoise seas and swaying palms to make you smile, beer in hand at sundowner o’clock – bliss!
