I spent my early childhood in Jamaica so travel has always been part of my life and has led me to experience many adventures in many different countries and continents, not least the 12 years I spent running my own beach lodge on a remote beach in Tanzania.
Having spent a number of years managing hotels I have a very critical eye for how a hotel operates and have got to know many hotel operators in Tanzania, so I am well placed to advise which hotels, lodges and camps to stay at, and the ones to avoid!
Africa is an incredible continent that stimulates all the senses like no other place I have ever been and draws you in and touches your soul, well at least it did for me! I like nothing more than to share my African experiences with anyone that wants to listen and love helping people put together a holiday of a lifetime to this incredible continent. I particularly like offering advice to those who like to venture off the beaten track and get a more cultural experience from their African travels.
My Expertise - All things Tanzania. Safari, beach, or both. Families, Honeymoons, Celebs. There's something for everyone in Tanzania
REVIEWS OF HOLIDAYS I'VE CREATED
There was never any pressure - just helpful suggestions. The result was indeed the holiday of a lifetime. Words will never do it justice - an INCREDIBLE experience.
- Sarah, Tanzania safari & beach holiday
Everything taken care of incredibly efficiently from domestic flights to hotel transfers and lots of questions in between. I would thoroughly recommend far and wild with no hesitation.

MY TOP TRAVEL MOMENTS
My first trip to the Selous Game Reserve and finding an Elephant rubbing against my cottage which I was able to touch
Sailing a Dhow down the east coast of Africa from Kenya to Tanzania
A camping trip through Serengeti National Park - where a pride of lions passed through our campsite during the night.
WHERE I'VE BEEN RECENTLY
During my recent years in Tanzania I visited many of the most popular and most frequented parks, such as Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area and of-course the iconic Serengeti National Park. The great thing about living somewhere is the opportunity to visit areas that are more off-the-beaten track, and that is what I really love, as I don’t do crowds. On my last trip I went to Sadaani National Park staying at a rustic camp run by a family who are committed to preserving the ecosystem of this incredible wilderness that sits on the coastline of Tanzania.
I LOVE STAYING AT...
The Tides Lodge, Pangani, Tanzania – slightly biased as I am part owner, but this place is truly special, with a beautiful un-spoilt beach and a chilled-out vibe with a touch of sophistication.
Beho Beho – Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania– the first lodge I managed, great location with great views across the plains. Large luxury stone build bandas and incredible cuisine.
The Old Boma – Mikindani, Tanzania – a truly atmospheric old German fort that has been converted in to small hotel and run by a charity to provide skills and development training to the local community.
