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 went on to study 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.
