Africa & Australia Adventure Specialist

I have been in the travel business for over 20 years and have intimate knowledge of all areas of Southern and Eastern Africa having lived in the area and travelled extensively within South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.

I have also spent some time travelling around Australia and can give you insights into 'must sees' on both continents.

I cater to retired couples wishing to fill their bucket list.  Young families looking for educational experiences.  Families or individuals looking for adventure.  Corporate groups (cruising is perfect for strategy meetings or incentive rewards - I have personally organised 4 such cruises). Individuals looking for unusual destinations with like minded travelers.

My tours include experiences out of the normal busy tourist areas and into the heart of the African and Australian bush with a high level of comfort and security for my clients.  I personally work with you to ensure that you get the trip you are dreaming of.  Nothing cookie cutter! Whatever you can think up or have on your wish list can be done.

On a recent African Safari, my clients and I camped under canvas in the Okavango Delta, Botswana.  Slept out in swags under the stars on the great salt pans of the Makadikadi, flew in small planes over the Delta viewing herds of elephants and giraffe.  Walked with young lions and rode on elephants along the Zambezi River.  We ate a meal with a local tribe and got wet from the spray of the mighty Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.

Hot air ballooning over the Serengeti Plains? Visiting the endangered mountain gorilla? Swim with the Great White Shark in S. Africa or the Whale Sharks in Australia? Camp under the shadow of Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Australia? Travel the great Nullanbor Desert by train in South Australia?  Or, maybe you want to stay in a quaint bed and breakfast on a South African or Australian winery or see the Jackass or Little Penguins. 

Whether it is a cruise, eco holiday or adventure safari.  I would love to work with you to capture your dreams.

Jenny arranged a trip that was tripleA in every respect - our accommodation was charming, our forays into the game parks most rewarding, our meals were excellent, our travel arrangements from place to place were organized and perfectly comfortable.  Jenny is blessed with an endearing sensitivity and her appreciation of the land, the people and the animals was contagious.  I faced every day, a new adventure - not only the wonders of physical Africa, but the wonders of a new perspective, a new humility, a new adventure of the mind and spirit - Donna, Barrie

I can happily say that I journeyed to Africa last summer with Jenny as our fearless leader.  Jenny loves Africa and she showed us Africa's heart. - Jane

Awesome!
We are just starting to travel now that we are retired. Jenny has arranged 2 cruises for us. When I checked with friends in the business all her reccomendations were spot on! She really shone when we had to cancel at the last minute due to illness. Jenny made sure we had all the right information and forms.

Well organized!
I would highly recommend anyone using the services of Jenny. She had a well presented information night before our trip to South Africa.. The trip itself was well planned and Jenny looked after any difficulties without stressing the guests. The trip involved many plane trips and all was all arranged ahead of time. The whole adventure was a trip of a lifetime

Jenny's kindness and preparedness made out trip a joy.
We were booked to go to Botswana on safari. We were pleasantly able to all meet together before we left. Jenny had a great audio visual display to show us what we could/might do or see. We knew who our fellow travellers were, and that in itself was a gift to have before we left. It was a trip of a lifetime, and Jenny made it all happen. Africa is stunningly beautiful and seeing the animals on their home turf was heart warming and stirred me to my soul. There are reasons for things to happen when they do. Travelling to Africa with Jenny was so much fun. Jenny deals with all things, with skill and kindness and even still makes things happen when they need to. All I can say is thanks Jenny for a very special journey.
