A little bit about Me


This is a space for me to share memories, anecdotes, photos, stories and travel advise which I have collected over the past years. Also new experiences which I constantly search out and enjoy. Having enjoyed a background in hospitality and tourism, which included founding and establishing the successful tour operating business Africa Awaits Tours and Safaris, which specialises in the creation of exclusive self-drive itineraries, guided tours and fly-in safaris for the bespoke visitor to Southern Africa. After a much treasured decade of fun and travel Africa Awaits Tours and Safaris is now in the capable hands of partner Mellanie Ferreira, and I am turning my focus to the development of The Incidental Tourist.

I live on the tiny historic farm, Versailles, in the heart of Wellington, and from here I create and share, remain truly inspired by life and love and continue to hone the skills learnt through personal endeavour, hard work and passion. You can also read about my freelance writing, and read interviews here.

NOTE: This was my very first hope filled blog post, so many years ago and what a journey it has been since then.
