As a graduate in Construction Engineering, Claire's route into the travel industry was not a traditional one. Neither did her gap year following university play out as per the original script. One year travelling extended to three, and saw Claire living and working across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Middle East and North America. Her fascination with new countries, landscapes, people and cultures motivated a move into the long-haul travel industry. Her first role in travel planning was with a large tailormade tour operator, with a global destination portfolio.
Favourite Safari Animal
"I'm such an animal lover so would struggle to choose one so here's my Big 5 - Rhino, ALL the big cats, Hippo, Hyena and the underrated, (but undeniably charismatic), Warthog."
Sundowner Of Choice
"I’m definitely a beer girl and love nothing more than sampling the local brews. There’s nothing quite like finishing an epic day of safari than watching the sunset with a Tusker in one hand and biltong in the other."
"This frequently changes, but Singita Boulders in the Sabi Sands Reserve, Kruger, is always in my top 10. Boulders Lodge forms part of Singita's world-renowned luxurious, yet eco-conscious, properties."
