Even in his 80’s he is still exploring, travelling to Sri Lanka and Cambodia in recent times. It got Anna thinking on how she could combine this great passion with work. It led her to a Business Degree in Tourism. Over the last 25 years she has worked with some fantastic and inspiring travel wholesalers – none more so than African Wildlife Safaris and Natural Focus.
Anna has loved all the amazing destinations that she’s visited and has generally shied away from the “mainstream” destinations, preferring more off-the-beaten-track styles of travel. Since she has worked for the company Anna has explored the likes of South Africa (on her first safari), experienced Sri Lanka with its eye-opening culture and the glorious white-sand beaches of the Maldives. Anna has also traversed much of South America, including Peru, Chile and Argentina with highlights such as Machu Picchu, the Atacama Desert and Iguazu Falls. There are still a number of countries Anna is excited to explore in the future including returning to the African continent. At the top of the list is Botswana; and in particular to explore the winding waterways of the Okavango Delta by mokoro (dugout canoe). Discovering the ancient wonders of Egypt is also high on the list.
