Founding Directors
 
WARWICK HOFFMAN
 
Many years ago (!) as a twenty something employee in the Travel Industry I first experienced the magic of the African continent. Since that visit I have returned to Africa on countless occasions, each time eager to head off into the bush for a remote and sometimes luxurious safari. Communing with nature by a river, or straining all your senses as you walk quietly in the company of a superb guide tracking wildlife, Africa is the ultimate destination for a holiday full of lifetime memories!
MANAGING DIRECTOR
 
LAURA BURDETT-MUNNS
 
Passionate and determined sums me up pretty well. Riding an elephant beside the Zambezi at 14 ignited a love affair with Africa that just keeps growing. Since then, this amazing travel company which my family set up has been in my blood. I'm determined to keep driving it forwards so you can experience the Africa that I adore and play our part protecting its precious wildlife.
Head of Safari Design

Paul Hawley
 
Paul Hawley lives and breathes Africa. He has fished the Zambezi, walked with the San Bushmen of the Kalahari, trekked the Chimpanzees of Mahale, ridden horses amongst the herds in the foothills of Kilimanjaro, tracked leopard on foot in Mana Pools, flown over Victoria Falls by helicopter, explored Namibia’s infamous Skeleton Coast and proposed at sunset on Christmas Day at the top of a rocky Kopje in Kenya. Spectacular African experiences such as these continue to shape his life now.
Safari Design Consultant

Ross Cambray
 
Ross Cambray’s love for Africa began on a 10-week journey through South Africa several years ago. His travels have taken him back to the Rainbow Nation, to the banks of the Zambezi River in Zambia, the depths of the Okavango Delta in Botswana, many different parks and reserves in Kenya, through the heart of beautiful Madagascar and even up to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
Safari Design Consultant

Emily Lowther
 
Whether enjoying the comforts of a sublime luxury lodge in Botswana watching elephant wander by or submerged in the depths of the Ugandan rainforest face to face with mountain gorillas, Emily loves the effortless combination of heart racing wildlife experiences and luxurious accommodation. She expertly creates authentic African adventures for clients whilst ensuring the highest levels of comfort and exclusivity.
Safari Design Consultant

Alex McFarland
 
With excitement and adventure at every turn there is something about Africa that has Alex well and truly hooked. Whether it’s trekking in the highlands of Ethiopia, meandering through the shallow waters of Botswana’s Okavango Delta, or diving off the coast of South Africa with Great White Sharks, Alex is always on the lookout for the next awe-inspiring experience to share with his clients.
Safari Design Support

Ben Oxford
 
Ever since my first visit to Africa at the age of 18 I quickly realised this is a continent I will endeavour to visit for the rest of my life. My passion for adventure has taken me all over the globe, however nothing is yet to compare to exploring Africa. Whether it be canoeing the Zambezi or scaling the peaks of South Africa, the combination of staggering landscapes and magnificent wildlife evoke a giddy excitement that can only be found in the wilds as Africa.
Client Services Manager

Angie Sumnall
 
Angie loves being part of a team where everyone all has the same goal which is to create and deliver amazing memories for everyone. She has been fortunate to have a kiss from a giraffe at Giraffe Manor, enjoyed the luxury of Rovos Rail and the best of all was to have her marriage blessed by Maasai for her 25th wedding anniversary.
Client Services

Hayley Manuel
 
I sold my first safari holiday over 20 years ago and from then I was hooked! I found a job I loved and I can honestly say, I have never ‘worked’ another day! I love that I get to co-ordinate fantastic holidays to some amazing places for our clients and no holiday is ever the same, so every day is like a different adventure for me.
Client Services

Holly Peace
 
I love my role, because even though I effectively ‘do’ the same support role for each client, the distinctness of their holidays means that my working life is forever varied and endlessly interesting; I am lucky enough to expand my knowledge of the world as I work.
Client Services

Isabel Smyth
 
I love that we see our clients as people with names and faces, every day is different and every holiday is personal from the enquiry to the welcome home, we help make amazing memories that last a lifetime.
