Our Travel Expert

I was born and grew up in Hong Kong so from a young age I started to travel and loved experiencing new countries and cultures. I have been lucky enough to travel all over Asia as well as visiting South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, North America, The Caribbean and over ten countries in Europe. I'm obsessed with sports and all kinds of activities especially when travelling, highlights being Bungee Jumping in Bali, Paragliding in New Zealand, golfing in South Africa and doing a ski season in Canada. Back at home I like to spend my free time at live music events, playing football, cricket, tennis and golf. I studied International Tourism at the University of Ulster and I'm now lucky enough to have a job that combines my love for travel, activities, sports and events. South Africa is my favourite destination on earth and I am very passionate about the place, I take great pleasure in putting together "trip of a life time" itineraries for people and I have completed a South Africa Specialist Program. I've sent many happy clients all over the country for spectacular golf and safari experiences and would be delighted to offer any advice on travelling to, and spending time in South Africa.
