With having so many fond childhood memories of her family travelling locally within South Africa at least twice a year to visit extended family or to take a road trip for the school holidays, travel has always played a big part in Karen's life. So when it came to having to decide what she wanted to do after graduating it was a very natural decision to study travel and tourism!
After completing a full-time three-year Travel & Tourism Management course Karen started working within the travel industry and has never looked back. For Karen, travel is a passion and an opportunity to give back, sustain and conserve so that those who follow after can enjoy.
Visiting Zimbabwe. I could not point out one experience but rather a combination of experiences which run across the country's history, people, natural landscape and wildlife that work so well together and provide one with unforgettable memories.
Gorilla trekking in Rwanda or Uganda. The combination of having the privilege to view these majestic, yet, endangered gorillas in their wild, natural habitats whilst knowing that through this experience you are contributing to the protection and conservation of these mysterious primates, for me, would be an experience of a lifetime.
Lion Sands River Lodge. I like to call this property a beautifully sophisticated safari lodge experience. One feels like they are wrapped in luxury while out in the African bush, a real spoil and given its location within the world famous Sabi Sands Game Reserve, game viewing options are spectacular.
The hyena , with their well know "laughter" it is said the hyena has a great sense of humour, this coupled with their rather unusual looks makes them a particularly interesting animal to watch.
