Gina Carter

Gina 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!

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.
