Most Memorable Trip
I have had so many wonderful experiences from my travels to the African continent. The most memorable has to be spending time with a family of mountain gorillas in Uganda (a truly humbling experience), having a front-row seat to the Great Migration in Kenya (without a doubt the greatest show on earth), floating silently over the Maasai Mara in a hot air balloon and a 5-night Okavango Expedition in Botswana which included a night fly camping on a remote island in the Okavango Delta... just magical!
Top Of My Bucket-List
Greystoke Mahale in Tanzania. Wonderfully remote, in the far reaches of western Tanzania on the edge of Lake Tanganyika. There is nowhere in Africa like it, white sand beaches, eco-castaway lodges and chimpanzees. A unique and wonderful place, I can’t wait to visit!
